It's really been three weeks

I think I figured out why I couldn't decide what to pick for my goals this month because no matter what I was going to pick it would all get completely throw out the window.

Even as I type I have a one year old attacking my face for kisses, which also contributes to why I can hardly write anymore. Glad for that distraction though!!

Grand sewing plans, yea right.

A project for a cute little bundle of joy on its way had a drastic deadline change, so instead of just chugging along with it it got pushed to the front burner.

I mean, everything came off the design wall and put into a pile. Everything.

Though, I did finish up one of the items on my list of goals for this month (I did have to wait for the backing to ship for the urgent one).

I quilted the tie-died quilt that was made by my friend's daughter. It was her first quilt, and I think she did an awesome job!

Hopefully she loves the quilting! I didn't want to compete with the boldness of her fabric, and I think I succeeded.

Here's the backing for the new project, as well as some matrishka doll fabric I've been googly eyed over for quite some time!

Since I just got this lovely bundle of fabric today, it'll be about a week till I show you the beauty that became urgent. I LOVE it! I need to make one for me too. (doesn't that always seem to happen??)

May Goals

What to do, what to do...

I've been thinking the last week or so about which goal(s) I'm going to set this month.

First, I was thinking about how this summer will most likely be insane, so moving the easier goals to June through August would probably be good.

Then, I thought about how I really wanted to stick with the projects I worked on in April so I could really eliminate some UFOs completely.

Then, thoughts of starting a whole new project have been popping up. I mean seriously, my list of quilts I want to make seems to have a few more added on each time I open my internet browser. Am I the only one that has this problem??

Geta Grama

I know that the third option really isn't sticking with the whole idea of actually finishing things, so that one should be crossed off the list. But, just look at that quilt by Geta Gramma! I bought the pattern immediately!!

Ok, back to reality... (I mean, that is paper pieced, and I currently have 5 kids ages 10 and under...)

With that off the table, I think the best thing to do would be to finish the projects I've been working on. Even though quilting the tops I've finished would be a easier project to keep up with through our summer schedule, I think I'd rather break up the quilting so I don't end up doing nothing but that for a few months straight.

Here is 'the goal' then:
- Quilt and bind my 'Double Stuffed' quilt
- Quilt tie-die quilt that is my friend's daughter's first quilt
- Quilt my first quilt (still unnamed, maybe I should call it: Took Me Forever. haha)

There it is, 'Took Me Forever', it's gonna be DONE soon!!! Yes!
