Goals and a SBQ

I didn't set any specific goals in April since we would be traveling. And as is often the case, no goals meant no progress. So I am back to setting May goals:
Stitching:
1. Finish Jeremiah Junction "For Every Season"
2. Finish 50% of the rocks on my fish RR
3. Keep up with Blackwork Round Robin
4. Complete baby quilt for the Cross Stitch Crazy message board

Other:
1. Keep up with and complete all the reading for 40 Days of Community at church
2. Stay on track with Beth Moore Patriarch's study
3. Stay on track with I AM blog Bible Study
4. Order summer curriculum for Jewel
5. Enroll Jewel in swim lessons
6. Complete at least 2 photo albums
7. Plan a family weekend away

Looks like May could be busy. :)

Today's SBQ was suggested Kathryn and is:

How many WIPs do you have? How many UFOs do you have? When does a WIP become a UFO?

I have 7 current Works in Progress (For Every Season (75%), Hinzeit Alabama (50%), Flag Quilt Sampler (20%), Bug Sampler (20%), Stoney Creek Tractors (just started), My Heart Belongs to Needlework (20%), and Come and Share (just started)). Then I have 5 Round Robins that have been returned and I need to complete. I have 3 UFOs which will never be finished I just need to either give them to someone or throw them away. (*blush* I also have 7 projects ready to start as soon as I finish something/anything).
A WIP becomes a UFO when I stop planning to finish it. Usually because my tastes have changed, my situation has changed or it was intended for someone who would no longer appreciate it. Of my current 3 UFOs, one was for my office before I quit working and the other two were started with the intention to someday give to my brother--but now his interests have changed as well. As long as a project still draws me and I want to finish it, I consider it a WIP.

I love that you quilt! I need to get busy on a few, myself. Time is fast approaching for the end of school year gifts.

I'm not much into sewing or craft projects, but I would love to know more about YOU. Consider yourself tagged!

I wish I were that organized in my life *sigh*. Maybe I really should start making a list each month for the things I want to accomplish. If I see it in black&white, maybe that will get me motivated.

Be blessed today and always.
