April Goals

My great grandmother that raised me said that the years seemed to fly by.  Blink your eye and it was Christmas or my birthday.  I never understood how she truly felt, come on when you are little it seems like forever until your birthday, or spring break, or vacation.  Now with all the grandchildren it does seem like I blink and a year is up. I cannot believe it is April already.

To keep me grounded I am going to link up with the ever positive and encouraging Carrie at http://apassionforapplique.blogspot.com/

 And the most inspiring cheerleader Thearica at http://www.pigtalesandquilts.com/  where you can link up too. 

 These two wonderful ladies are inspiring, and the best at encouraging.  They keep me focused, and they make such wonderful projects. 

My goals for April

1.  Work on Machine Quilting Easy Street 

2.  Chart and work on my Christmas Stocking Cuffs-  I have 6 to make for my mother's house and at least 2 for my home I have been putting this off....It means I have to sit still and watch TV then I get distracted.  Oh My!
3. Make Valances/Curtains for the family room This is one of my blocks which has the contrary wife.  They will look so cute in our little ole farmhouse.

4. Finish piecing my Hugs and Kisses Quilt top

5.  Finish piecing my Jewel box blocks I have 5 I think I want about 30 blocks
