I’m going for gold–I’m going Olympic

P1000960

I Love a challenge – in fact I thrive on challenges in the Quilt Corner :-)
I am not really the most competitive person, unless I compete with myself, but I am good at challenging myself.

You may remember I made 2 piles of my Ufos at the beginning of the month?
One pile was with bigger projects and one pile was with smaller projects.

It really looks like my passion is with the bigger projects – Yes :-)

So far this month I have finished 1 Ufo from the bigger projects pile (the Buggy Barn heart quilt)  and 4 from the small Ufos pile.

Even if finishing all the small projects seems like a good way to get the Finish count up,
I sort of get stuck with all the big projects at the end of the year.
Well – my plan this year is to alternate and to aim for an average of 1 big finish a month.

The 2014 Winter Olympic is coming up in 18 days, 7. February.
and I found that it is a good thing to challenge myself to some big finishes.

Above is the 5 projects I have picked for myself, aiming for at least 1 big finish and moving the other 4 projects forward before the Olympics ends at 23, February.
Shhhh – whispering in a low voice – maybe I can manage to finish 2 big projects – shhhhh  ;-)

1st Priority is the light blue Life Is Beautiful quilt.

I am officially going in to training camp today,
knowing that all good victories starts with both mental and physical training :-)

I might get a lot more hand work done with the Olympics coming up, frequently during the time period I like to just sit in the living room and stitch while watching - the quilting on the frame can take a break.
