January Goal Post {ALYOF}

It's another year for "A Lovely Year of Finishes!"

This is a wonderful way to set one goal at the beginning of the month and to stay motivated to finish it by the end of the month. I'm sure I won't be able to participate every month during 2015, but I may as well start and see how it goes as the year goes by :)

January goal: I have two "Monikered Baby Bags" to complete! 

While my mother makes these as baby gifts, the way things are going around here, I think I'll start calling them first-year-birthday bags :) A lot of moms have their preferred baby bags anyway. I use E's as her toddler bag as it's easy for her to add toys to before leaving and to dig for toys at our destination. My brother's sons use them as church activity bags. They are even wonderful for library bags! So, I'm OK with them getting finished long after baby is born... as long as they get done... preferably by the first birthday, ha! So.... let's get these two done before I really have to get busy on some more baby quilts :)


  1. I'm looking forward to seeing these bags. I have 4 grandkids and one more on the way, so I'm always on the look out for new things to make them.

  2. Can't wait to see the baby bags. Sounds like a great gift..
