Do you reward yourself for your accomplishments? I hope you do! You deserve it!
August is two-thirds of the way over and I've accomplished several of my goals for the month. The Sweat Shop is cleaned up--STILL! I know there are a few naysayers out there who figured it would be a mess as soon as I put a toe across the threshhold, but it's still looking darn good, if I say so myself!
And those projects I've listed in the sidebar that are finished? Yep, patting myself on the back for those!
And the fabric I culled out of my stash that I didn't think I'd use? On it's way by car tomorrow to its destination, where it will be sold and the money raised will go to cancer research and/or treatment.
Not too bad so far! And what do I have left to accomplish? Well, there are still several more projects in my sidebar I want to work on--some of which I AM working on now! And I still have a stack of magazines I want to go through--every now and then, I like to take out the instructions and pictures for quilts I think I might make and either discard or give away the rest. So I have those to organize. But I'm getting there!
When I started this drive to get things finished up in August, I said that those of you who joined up would be listed in my sidebar and those who were listed and "finished" three or more projects during the month would be put in a drawing for a reward. So how are you doing? Who has finished three or more projects so far? I hopped around to a couple blogs and noticed some of you haven't posted for awhile--maybe you're too busy getting projects done? Can we see what you've been up to? Please leave a comment to let us know how it's going.
Want to see my reward?
Cool, huh? And best of all? I just had to buy the pattern and a few of the orange fabrics--the rest came out of my stash, so this will be a good stash busting project! In September, I'm going to quilt camp for several days, and this will be the main project I'll take to work on.
I don't know if you can see it very well, but the Halloween quilt I made using the Fireworks! pattern is underneath the fabric--I'm getting close to being done with the quilting, which means marking another project off my list. That sure feels good!
What are you planning to accomplish this month and what will you do to reward yourself? Please comment or let me know if you decide to write about it on your blog. I'd love to hear about your goals and rewards!
