|Pillow case finish #3|
I finished the pillow case to go with my "42 Minis." This is finish #3 for the fourth quarter. I used about a yard of the left over fabrics which brings my total to 22 1/2 yards used from my stash so far this year. I'm almost half way to my goal for the year! All that is left for the "42 Minis" is to figure out where to place my name tag that I wore for the year. I think it should be on the front of the quilt somewhere; but, just where that is escapes me for now.
It is good to have some smaller projects on the list to diversify a bit. Big project after big project would become work which would not be fun!

Throughout the year, I started new projects, which is good. I expanded my original list. Participating in the Finish-A-Long 2016 (FAL) has been great. Even though I have finished so few projects, it has been terrific to set quarterly goals. For the last two months of the year, I'm setting weekly goals to see if that makes a difference in how quickly I finish a project. I did learn that I do better with being more specific about a goal and that I have more success if I break the goal into parts. I get to celebrate more wins this way!
For the fourth quarter of the FAL, I had 20 goals. I've completed three. No, I won't get them all finished; but, that just means that I'll have plenty to do in the new year! This is my third Finish-A-Long 2016 for quarter number 4. You can read my list here.
