My January Goal for ONE MONTHLY GOAL linky party...





Heidi at Red Letter Quilts has started a new linky party to share our 2016 monthly goals.  I found by setting monthly goals with Melissa and Shanna I was able to finish a lot of my UFO's and even new projects.  The party is called OMG or One Monthly Goal.

My January goal is going to be a project different from anything I've done before.

I have a old stool that was in my Mom's kitchen for many many years.  She down sized about five years ago and I brought the stool home with me.    It had black rubber glued to one of the steps when we brought it back to Michigan.  The other step was covered in dried glue...it looked pretty sad!!  

In August DH removed the black rubber and the glue on the steps.  He cleaned the chrome and painted the steps white.  It looked great except for the seat. Since then it has been waiting for me to recover the seat.  Originally I was going to quilt some novelty Coke themed fabric. Then I found some black gingham vinyl that came home with me from the fabric store...months ago.  I loved it with the newly painted steps.  I'm still not sure if I will go with the Coke seat or the black gingham seat or...why it has taken me so long to finish recovering it.  I guess I really do need to put my goals in writing.  It's not a big goal but it is my January 2016 goal for the OMG linky party.   

I'm linking up with Heidi at Red Letter Quilts.  



Thank you Heidi for encouraging us to finish our UFO's.
Happy Stitching

My grandparents had a seat like that, but with a back. We all used that seat instead of a high chair, and had fun using it until we couldn't fit on it anymore. I wish I had that now. I hope to find one someday, before we have grandkids.

A perfect goal to start the year. Which fabric selection is going to suit your new home best?
