it all starts with a plan

so... 23 quilts and throws by christmas... that is the plan. I have finished 6 so far. I have the rest in various stages of progress. But i have stalled again on sewing and its getting to the point where i need to start seeing progress or im never going to make it.

So i have a plan for 7 finishes in 8 weeks. one is quilted, one is sandwiched, two are borders away from finished flimsies, one is about 1/2 a flimsie, 2 are mostly cut out. Ive set weekly goals for the next 8 weeks. If i can stay within a week or two of the plan and stick to the order, i will feel much better about making my overall goal!
