One Monthly Goal - November


Can I call it a goal if I am not specific?

First up, though, thanks to Heidi at Red Letter Quilts for hosting One Monthly Goal (OMG) for the majority of the year.  She has handed the baton to Patty at Elm Street Quilts. so be sure to hop over there and see the specific goals others have set for the month of November.

But back to my non-specific goal for November.  My plan is to make yet-to-be-determined quilted gifts for the four caregivers who have been so faithful in their care of my mother-in-law (a/k/a The Queen Mother).  While they get a nice Christmas bonus from Alex and his mom, I always try to make something to show my special appreciation for being free to pursue my quilting passion.

I gave them all quilts several years ago, thinking that would be MIL's last Christmas.  Yet, the Eveready Bunny is still with us.

I'm thinking it will probably be a table runner of some sort this time.  In fact, I made these last year, but didn't have time to finish them.

It would be easy to get them sandwiched and quilted.  I have a couple other table runners started, so maybe I'll finish them.

Or maybe a Christmas pillow ....

With a week of the month already gone, I'd best get crackin'.


  1. I love your runner! What a nice gift it would be for the caregivers.

  2. Really pretty! And since you've already started, probably easily doable to get table runners finished up in time for Christmas gifts.

  3. Hey, it's your goal - I think you can be as specific or non-specific as you want, right?
    Good luck with whatever you choose!

  4. Nice use of a border print, Libby!! Table runners for the caretakers sounds like a great idea. Happy finishing!!

  5. Can you believe it's November already? I think goals can be as specific, or not, as you want; they're your goals after all. Good luck with your table runners - it's a lovey thought to make gifts for the caregivers.

  6. Thanks for linking up with One Monthly Goal at Elm Street Quilts and the best of luck on your finish!

  7. Sounds like a very good and doable goal. Good luck and happy stitching.

  8. BlueHost is ultimately one of the best hosting company for any hosting services you need.
