2018 Goals - Mid-Year Review

A little over half the year is gone and Yvonne, from Quilting Jetgirl, is hosting a mid-year review link party. I participated in Yvonne's goal-setting party at the start of the year, so I thought it'd be fun to see how I'm doing.

My goals for 2018 were separated into 3 different groups:

1. Start making garments

My mini-goals here were to:
  • Learn how to use my serger (probably with a Craftsy or Creative Bug class) - I learned how to thread my serger and used it a few times to finish seams.
  • Make an easy woven top for myself - Done! I made a Sorbetto top for myself and I made a Cleo skirt too!
  • Make an easy knit top for myself - Not done, but I did purchase the fabric and an easy T pattern.
  • Make dresses for the grand-girls - Not done, BUT I did make something for the grand-girls. I haven't taken photos yet, but will be sharing all about these very soon.

2. Make at least 2 bags

My mini-goals for this one were to make:
My Aeroplane Bag

My Baker Street Bag

3. Make a series of mini quilts based on Josef Albers' work

Half done! I made three mini quilts so far this year.

Albers Inspired Mini #1, #2 and #3

For the second half of the year, I plan on making a few more garment pieces, finish my Albers series of minis and I've got a few scrappy quilts planned also. Should be fun!

I will be linking up at Yvonne's (I'm cutting it real close though because it closes today!).


  1. You are making great progress on your goals! I look forward to seeing how the rest of the year progresses for you.

  2. I think you nailed all your goals. Well done...you're doing great so far.

  3. You are making excellent progress! I love the short and the bags!

  4. Great job at working on your goals. Love the bags and mini quilts.
