October's One Monthly Goal

Well, it is time to set my goal for the current month.  I haven't spent much time in the sewing room since we came home and have been procrastinating over my goal, as all the easy to finish UFOs are done and now the ones left have a bit more work involved in them.

So, as I haven't worked on any of my Splendid Sampler II blocks since we returned home, I now have seven that are waiting patiently.  Therefore, this month's goal is to have my Splendid Sampler blocks completely up to date by the end of the month.  There will be three more released by then, so that is ten blocks to make.  I think I can do that without too much trouble.  I'll get in and cut kits for each  of  the blocks I have now in one go, which should make things much easier.

In the background, today the final block was released in the Squared Away Sampler, which is part of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.  Those blocks are always fun to make.  I can't wait to see them all laid out together and find out the setting diagram next month.

Also, today we were out and about and in a junk shop I found a remnant of a good quality upholstery style canvas fabric.  There is about a metre, but with a bit cut off the side.  It should make a nice, heavy quality tote bag.  That is my project for tomorrow.

I think that little lot is quite enough for now.

I'm linking up with Patty over at Elm Street Quilts.

Good canvas for all those shopping bags we need? Good luck with the other blocks.
