Completed December OMG

I finished 2 of these Divided Baskets pattern by Noodlehead which was my December One Monthly Goal. I do like this pattern and may sew more down the road.

This one I am going to use around the house or on our camper. I've had this fabric sitting in a dresser drawer for about 5 years so it is time it has been put to good use.



This Owl basket I finished at the beginning of December for my Friend's baby shower. She said it was really cute and it is now sitting on the dresser in her baby's room. This basket does make a very nice size for a box of baby diapers.


So I have completed my  December OMG and linking up to Elm Street Quilts OMG December Finish.

2017 Goals

Joining the party over at Quilting Jet Girl's 2017 Planning Party .
I've been sewing and quilting for about 10 years, but only blogging about 2 years. So these are my goals for 2017:

1.) I completed 2 larger-size quilts in 2016 so my goal is to complete 3 larger-size quilts in 2017. I will be lucky to get this done because I jump around and make smaller projects in between. Plus, sometimes it takes me forever to baste the quilt and complete the quilting.
 
 
2.) I collected a lot of fabric in 2015 and 2016 so I need to weed through my drawers and use it up.  I have not made a dent in the fabric in these tins. Whatever gave me the idea I could sew these monthly?

3.) Sew some smaller projects ahead for gifts. That way when I need a gift for an occasion, I will have a few ready to choose from. I'm sure I could use these table toppers for gifts.
4.) Get better at blogging. My blog is definitely not the greatest. It took me a while just to figure out how to add a button. I also need to learn to post on Instagram. Haven't posted anything yet. I do not make the best use of my phone.
5.) Attempt some Free Motion Quilting and Quilting with Rulers. I purchased the Quilting with Rulers class, but I have not done it yet because I cannot find the presser foot.
