This is one reason why I keep records … for days like today when I’m feeling like I’m not accomplishing enough – 2019 was my most productive year since we moved from Minneapolis. Yes, there were multiple moves in those 5 and a half years to be coordinated and time spent caring for family or dealing with my own health issues but I still wanted to accomplish more and while I felt this year was still not productive enough, I was surprised to see that I was wrong when I looked at all my numbers.
Before you tell me that productivity is not the goal (and it may not be your goal), understand that for me it is a big consideration. I don’t work outside the home so my quilting, crochet, and knitting for donation are how I still contribute.
67 tops quilted or tied
• 3 were mine to be gifted
• 1 was mine to keep
• 22 were my donation tops
• 15 were tops by family
• 26 were tops pieced by HeartStrings quilters
20 quilts were started
• 12 are finished
• 6 are finished tops
• 1 is unassembled
15 UFO’s were finished
• 1 UFO abandoned (since I can’t find it!)
• 15 UFO’s were NOT finished
• 7 of the 2019 new starts will become UFOs in 2020
Total UFOs heading into 2020 = 22 (the lowest number in 7 years!)
For our 2019 Precut party I made at least one top for each month’s precut with a couple extra tops thrown in. I also gave Mom a bunch of precuts and quilted and bound some precut UFOs.
Knitting and Crochet results
• 24 blankets were made – all but 2 have been, or will be donated
• 22 crocheted
• 2 knit
• 13 hats were knit
I didn’t make any serious headway on my knit UFO’s as only 2 of 20 were finished which is crazy because 14 of them just need blocking and/or ends woven in.
