May Short List

I’m posting this a little early because I have such a busy weekend planned. Seems like everything happens at once.

April was a very productive month. I finished Modern Geisha and the April BOM blocks. I also made a textured fabric sample for Creative Play and will finish the March BOM blocks this weekend.

I added a handwork project to the mix, the cross-stitch bears, and will finish three of the twelve blocks this month.

If you are a new reader, the Short List is something old (UFO), something new, something BOM related, a handwork project and Creative Play.

Something Old: The applique raffle block quilt. I won this block and numerous others in a guild raffle many years ago. It took a while to figure out what to do with it. I cut the pieces at retreat 2 or 3 years ago.  I can’t find the picture to save my life.  It seems to have disappeared from the library.

Something New: Tumblers. This kit came from the charity table at guild. Someone else sewed half the rows together. I have the quilt sewn into three sections and it’s ready to baste.  I need to remember to take a picture next time I lay it out.

tumblers-in-processSomething Else New: I’m making a set of thread catchers for my guild’s silent auction in July. I need to have them done to take to the May meeting.

BOM: I’m only two months behind now. The next set of block instructions will post next week. Whether I make one or two months worth of blocks depends on how many blocks I need to make for May.

april-16-bomHandwork Project: I will continue with the embroidered blocks. My goal is five blocks for May.

bear-block-2Creative Play: I’m not going to plan anything because I always do something else.

I’m saving my block count until Sunday when I know exactly how many I finished. April is my biggest month this year.

I’m excited to have made progress on so many things. Looking forward to another great month in May.
