October 2021 – Goals, UFOs & OMG

It’s hard to believe that Fall is here. Nights are getting cooler and daytime temperatures are no longer in the 90’s. This time of year you need to dress in layers as it might be chilly in the morning, but shorts & short-sleeves are required during the daytime.

In addition to APQ’s UFO Challenge and Elm Street Quilt’s OMG, I’m planning on trying to keep up with my Fall 2021 Current Projects.

(OK, for those not in the quilting world – UFO stands for UnFinished Object, and OMG means One Monthly Goal.)
