February Goal for "A Lovely Year of Finishes"

I accomplished my January goal with time to spare, but this month's goal is going to be a real challenge.  Not only is this a short month, but the flooring company is here today ripping up carpets and putting down hardwood in three bedrooms AND my sewing studio.  The entire process will take about three weeks which won't leave a lot of time for putting things back together or for getting any sewing done.  This is what my sewing room looks like right now.....

Tonight it will be empty and tomorrow the carpet will be ripped out.   

I did want to get something done in February, though, so I decided to finish the little wallhanging I started in December.  This is my February goal.

I'm pretty sure I can get it basted and hand-quilted this month, but I am not sure about the binding since all my sewing machines are packed away somewhere in all this stuff!

In case you can't tell that is my breakfast area.

I am linking up with Fiber of All Sorts for their ALYOF February Goal setting party.   Since I have been packing and helping Sweet Adorable Hubby move furniture for the last two evenings, I hope I have the energy to actually work on my goal!

A Lovely Year of Finishes 



  1. Yikes!!! That's an awful lot of disruption to live with for 3 weeks!!! Especially if you don't have access to a sewing machine to distract you ;-)

  2. Good luck with your goal. I hope the flooring install goes smoothly!

  3. Ok..I don't want to jinx myself but if you are HAVING it done...why is it taking three weeks. They should be a lot faster than that AND..the sewing machine should have gone into the bedroom in the interim.

  4. You know it will all be worth it in the end. Love the B&W wall quilt!! Take care of yourself, set reasonable goals each day, get plenty of rest and enjoy anticipating America's Loveliest Sewing Room! <3

  5. Good luck.

    Just think of how wonderful it will be to unpack your sewing room again.

  6. I know you will reach your goals in Feb even with the distraction. Your sewing room will be even more beautiful when it's done -- if that is possible. It looked pretty fantastic to me before.
