2018 Finish Along: Q1

I'm seriously looking forward to a productive

My goal for the year is to work through my 


I continue to be a Hive Mama for Stash Bee - Hive #7

And I'm in my 5th year as a charity quilter/sewer in the

believe circle @ do. good stitches.

This quarter I'm not shooting for the stars.

I'm keeping it minimal.

This week I was told I have cancer in my thyroid and it will need to 
be removed.

Good news is that the surgery cures 98%.

My thyroid is coming out and I'm moving on!

The surgery will be after my Hawaii vacation 
{which has been planned for 2 years now!}

My Quarter 1 list:

1.  Snowflake Quilt - Jan is my month at Stash Bee
{snowflake tutorial HERE}

2.  Window Box Quilt - Jan is also my host month at do. good stitches
{tutorial HERE}

3.  Autumn Quilt - has been on my list for awhile

4.  Summer/Beach/Hawaii Tribute Quilt - why not???

5.  Sharktown Quilt - I'm a huge shark fan

6.  Six Fat Snowman - Lizzie Kate Pattern

My word for the year is PEACE.  

Nothing is going to waiver that.

Not even cancer.

Peace to all,



  1. Best of luck on completing your list! I hope that your Hawaii trip is fantastic and that all goes well with the upcoming surgery. PEACE sounds like a wonderful word for the year.

  2. Most importantly, wishing you health and a quick recovery from your surgery. Enjoy the vacation before then. I'll look forward to any finishes, but also news that all is well. On behalf of the FAL crew, thank you for joining up and be well!

  3. Your trip to Hawaii will be just what the doctor ordered. I'm not sure which area you're going to, but the warmth on your skin, the soft breezes and the laid back atmosphere can help you capture that sense of peace to help with your surgery. And look at those odds - fantastic! You've got this!!!
