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:
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

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?

The permalink to this post is:

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.

PS: LWG has your blog as featured blog this week--hope you don't mind that I 'snatched' your header picture of your blog.
