One Monthly Goal - November Goal Setting Linkup

I'm excited to announce that I'll be hosting One Monthly Goal for the rest of 2016 as well into 2017!

Heidi @ Red Letter Quilts has done a fantastic job hosting this event and I thank her for giving me the opportunity to host.  We all appreciated her enthusiasm for our projects and our goal setting and wish her a speedy recovery. Thanks Heidi!

If you are a One Monthly Goal regular but new to my Elm Street Quilts blog - WELCOME and thank you for staying with the event! The basics of One Monhly Goal remains the same along with the same great sponsors.  While you are here at my blog, I hope you will check out the Bag It event underway right now.  There are many tutorials for bags and for any bag you make from ANY tutorial or pattern, you earn entries into quite the fantastic giveaway.  Read more about that here.   

If you are a Elm Street Quilts regular but new to One Monthly Goal - WELCOME and thanks for checking out this fun event.  To join in, post about ONE of your quilt-related goals for the month and link up during the first 7 days of the month.  Then return back at the end of the month to link up your accomplishment of that goal for a chance to win a prize.  You can post on your blog or Instagram - read all about it here.

Make sure you visit the One Monthly Goal event page for the specific requirements for links and social tags. The linkups from January through October are available here.

And remember, to be eligible for the prize(s) by random drawing you must linkup at both the goal setting and the accomplishment linkups.

Excited?  I sure am!

My goal for November will be to make 15 gifts for the holidays.  I'm giving many of the women in my life a Purse Pack - see my Elm Street Quilts Purse Pack tutorial.  

15 may seem like a lot but I've got some of the hard work done by picking out all the fabric combinations.  Everything is selected and kitted, ready for some quality time with my machine.

What's your goal for November?  Goal setting link up closes on November 7, 2016 at 11:59 pm est.
