April Check In

Have I said yet that I am loving this Lovely Year of Finishes thing??

Cause I really am.

I feel super productive, and I'm actually doing instead of organizing.

You see, I have COD (yes, they spelled OCD wrong. Didn't you know??? ha ha ha) and sometimes just a touch of ADD. So, I start off sewing on a current project, then I see something that just needs to be put away. Right then! Then, while I'm putting said thing away, there is something else that just shouldn't be where it is. While that item is being return to it's needed location I find some fabric that I was in the middle of cutting the last time I was 'sewing'.

Do you see how this process goes??? It can make me insane sometimes. I feel like I have to put on blinders just so I can focus on what I'm working on, and this Lovely Year of Finishes seems to be just the 'blinders' I need.

Without further distraction...


(Sorry for the horrible picture, my sewing area is in the basement)

This is the progress I have made on my BYG quilt. The big block that is in the upper left actually has about 3 more strips sewn onto in since this photo was taken, and it's only got about 3 more 'til it's done. So excited to finsh up this one!

The back is in progress now too. I'm planning to use up the scraps in different width strips, and some of these are done/partially done. I just need to figure out which fabric I want to use as the main one on the back.

This quilt will be pieced and ready for quilting this month!! Yay!

Here's my April goal setting.
