May Wrap Up

I figured I wouldn't have a whole lot done on my goals for the month of May.  Sometimes life just gets topsy turvy.

How did I do?

1.  Farmer's Wife  get a row or two finished
I got 1 row of sashing and cornerstones, and one row of blocks on it this month. 

2.  Grand Illusion get a few more blocks finished
I only touched this one to move it from one area in my sewing room to another. 

3.  Slow stitching

a.  The tractor needs some love.  The cross stitch is finished, the name is charted I just need to cross stitch the name.

b.  Redwork Words of Wisdom-

Finish Q and maybe R

 I also finished S, T, U, V and started W!

4.  Swoon

5.  Yellow Brick road the top is done I do need to add borders though!
6.  Quilting

I finally figured out my tension problems.  I still have an additional skipped stitch but I am about 1/3 done with the quilt.

7.  Aurifil Block of the Month for 2014
I finished the center block.
I also got the parts cut out to set the blocks, and two blocks together. 

Of course there were some other things kind of jumbled in there.
Planting the garden, and weeding flower beds!
What is left are not weeds, those are actually new plantings!
I started working on the Lori Holt Farm Girl Vintage QAL.  I am a couple of weeks behind.
I also started working on the next stocking cuff for the family.
Amidst it all I also read or listened to 6 books this month!

Not a bad month overall considering all of the changes going on.  


  1. Whoo Hoo! you got a lot done there! I love that Grand Illusion--the colors are fabulous! Such nice projects in the works...slow and steady wins the race...hugs, Julierose

  2. That's a lot when you are keeping grands

  3. Not a bad month at all. The bird block is super cute.

  4. See, you got lots done. I keep a calendar, and write down what I do, stitching wise, every day. By the end of most months (not May) I'm usually surprised at how much I did that I didn't remember.
