I enjoy looking back at the end of each month and checking in to see how I went on my goals. Jotting them down here at the start of each month is really making me accountable.
Firstly, the stitching goals.
1. ONE MONTHLY GOAL
2. WOOFA CHALLENGE
My goal didn't actually stipulate how far advanced I wished to be with this quilt, so I am happy to be as far advanced as I am. I just need to rectify my boo boo, add a narrow border and the top will be complete. You can read more about it here.
3. ONE PROJECT A MONTH
I have more than one. There are four. Happy dance.
4. CHRISTMAS CHALLENGE
Due to joining in on a lengthy Zoom day of stitching with Chooky and co, I have actually completed three little redwork blocks. That is much more productive than I have been over the last several months. Only two more blocks to stitch. Then I have to decide what I am actually going to do with them.
5.FRIDAY NIGHT WITH FRIENDS
It was fun joining in, even though I didn't achieve as much as I had wished.
6. OTHER PROJECTS IN THE BACKGROUND
Well, those bibs and pencil cases are still waiting in the wings. They aren't going anywhere.
7. BONUS PROJECTS
I like it when in addition to my goals I have snuck in some other stitching. Lots of girls are blaming squirrels. I think they may have turned up here as well.

My final little finishes are two pyramid lavender sachets using a great little tutorial I found here, competed today. Just a bit of fun. The fabrics have been kicking around in my stash for years. No idea where they came from. The one on the left would be from the 80s. The one of the right is a lawn that has obviously been used for garment sewing, looking at the shape of the scraps. I'm guessing it would have been for a summer nightie, looking at the fabric design. It could be 70s, or even earlier.
So another month ends with quite a bit to show for it. That is one bonus for not being aloud to travel.
1. READ A BOOK
I had to get this one read early in the month, as it had to be returned to the library. I've really enjoyed the Jane Harper books, but this one not quite as much as the previous. Mind you, I will be looking forward to her next book.
2. TRY A NEW RECIPE
I wasn't sure if this was going to happen as the month end drew closer, but I found a recipe for Banana and Peanut Butter muffins on the weekend. They are nice, but I can't say I'm raving over them. They are bit crumbly. We are still enjoying them with a nice cup of coffee.
3. FRIDAY FUN DAY
Not really. I had to work on a couple of them and we can't go anywhere. The closest we got was on the first Friday of the month, when we visited the op shops and had a wander around the art gallery. I'm not too worried though. It has been nice to have some time at home.
4. HAVE A WEEKEND AWAY IN THE CARAVAN
Obviously, this hasn't happened and we don't know when we are likely to be able to get away again. We were supposed to be travelling for two weeks in the middle of this month. Oh well, it isn't the end of the earth that we had to cancel. We won't plan anything for the rest of the year, then we won't be disappointed. When we do get to go away, it will be a bonus.
So that's it for another month. I wonder what will be happening at the end of next month? You never know at the moment.
