PHD in 2020: Mid July Report

Screen Shot 2019-12-06 at 11.47.00 AM

In June, I had no UFO finishes … and that was right after I added 6 more to the total that I needed to complete in 2020 to achieve my PHD in 2020!

But have no fear … I finished one UFO on Sunday.  Summer Solstice was completed!  Wow – it was a great feeling to have this one done!  You can read more about it HERE.


In the meantime …  July has started off with 3 new starts … the Tumbler quilt, the Island Batik December quilt and a Blue Carpenter’s Wheel.

OK … so you’re asking why, oh why, am I working on December’s Island Batik challenge when I have July, Aug., Sept., Oct., and Nov. challenges to do?  Well it’s quite simple.  I have not received my July boxes YET.  I assume they are stuck in customs somewhere … Anyhow, all of the monthly challenges up to December need to use either fabric, thread, or a tool that is included in the boxes.  I’m hoping they will arrive soon!

And, I should start on my Christmas in July project … my day to share that project is July 30.

If you look at my chart below … you can see that I have 5 UFOs to finish before December (Purple section).  And, I promised myself to finish the ones in the far right column first … Dog & Cat has turned into 2 quilts and #1 is currently being quilted.

  1. Summer Solstice is beautiful. Good luck with your December Island Batik challenge. Even if you don’t get any more finishes this year, 2020 has been awesome for you on that front.

  2. I don’t envy your waiting for a box to finish a project! I sure hope it comes soon. Am trying to finish a UFO for tomorrow, we shall see. It has taken me longer, due to interruptions and a 2 days on the road, but I think I am nearly there. Good luck getting your goals accomplished this month.

  3. Gosh Gail, in spite of the new starts you are keeping up and finishing your projects at a great rate. Well done on the finishes! I can see my PhD will be taking me two years to complete but I guess I’m OK with that!
