Wednesday's Word. Pressing On! BOMs Away!

Wednesday's Word
I also enjoy the NIV version of this Romans 15:13 - 

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace 
as you trust in Him
so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
- Romans 15:13

As we believe and trust in God, He will move.  

Pressing On!
I press on toward the goal...Philippians 3:14a  
Oh my!  The many BOMs I'm working on are definitely changing the way I organize my crafting time.  It looks like I didn't get much crossed off my list, but I accomplished so much! 

Last week's list:
1.  Stitch up some more squares for my Scrappy Four Patch!  X

2.  Prep kits for my BOMs and for a Valentines' table topper.  ✔  
I spent most of the week cutting the fabric for each of my five BOMs described in last week's post.  I ended up cutting enough fabric for 10 blocks!  
They are all in sheet protectors hanging on my design wall except for those Valentine's strips that will become a table topper using this tutorial by Connie at Freemotion by the River!  

 Did you know you can put a pin through the back of a Wonder Clip to hang up projects?

I actually made an entire kit for my Jingle All the Way quilt by Kimberbell - which took several days.  I really like using page protectors and three ring binders - a carry over from my teaching days.
 I made two binders - the one below holds the pattern book and the fabric for the 
twelve sections of the quilt.
 This second binder holds 
the leftover fabric used in the quilt.  
Here's the the fabric cut for my 

3.  Finish one crocheted dishcloth. ✔  I made 2!

4.  Make progress on an afghan for a special lady.  X

5.  With all my BOM goals, I seriously doubt I'll be able to keep up with American Patchwork's UFO Challenge 2019I'll try, but I will be very gentle with myself if it's not possible.  There's always next year!  X

6.  On Sundays I Slow Stitch - hand sew.  For now, I'm working on my GFG.  X 

Here's this week's Pressing On List.  
1.  Finish one crocheted dishcloth.
2.  Make progress on the Prayer Afghan.  
3.  Sew the $7.50 blocks in the 30's fabric.
4.   Relax on Sunday with Slow Stitching on my GFG.
