One Monthly Goal – January 2018

Starting the year with a Link-up to Elm Street Quilts and the One Monthly Goal (OMG) January Link Up.


January 2018 – OMG

I’m still keeping it simple, but hoping on making progress.  So my OMG is to bind and label the Choo Choo Quilt.  I have the binding cut and the label printed.  I will be attaching the binding by machine since this quilt if for a cutie 1-year old, so hoping that this will progress quickly.

Crossing the Finish Line – Part 2

This year I have been supporting Project Linus and participating in an Ultra Half Mary-Thon as well as 2 challenges.   See my earlier post about the Winter Challenge Finish.

Mary-Thon Banner

The Mary-Thon had two Corrals – one was January – June and the 2nd one was July – December.  Each had a few extra weeks to allow for missing a week or two.  The Half Mary-Thon required a commitment of at least 30 minutes a day for 3 days each week, while the Full Mary-Thon was 5 days a week.  I chose to begin with 3 days a week, but often did more.

One Monthly Goal Finished – December 2017

For December my OMG (One Monthly Goal) was to complete the Standard & Travel-size pillowcases to match the Choo Choo Quilt.  Bonus points (to me) will be if I could get the binding added & label made.

Merry Christmas to all! (2017)

Spending time with Family and cooking a Christmas Dinner.  Just wanted to pop in to my Internet friends and wish everyone a Merry Christmas, Peace, Love & Joy!


And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.

And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.

And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone around about them: and they were sore afraid.

And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.

For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,

Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

Luke 2: 7-14 Women’s Daily Bible – King James Version

Peace, Love & Joy!
