Fortunately there is more to life than quilting! I showed you these jars back in March when I went back on Weight Watchers online and bought myself a FitBit as an early birthday present.
Each Sunday morning I weigh in 1st thing hoping to be able to transfer some gems from the Pounds to Lose bowl to the Pounds Lost bowl. I'm happy to say that the Pounds to Lose bowl is done to 8 gems and I've decluttered 22 lbs since March 1! These bowls sit in my kitchen window as a constant reminder to make good choices while I'm in this room.
I've been doing lots of walking and am going to be adding in some other types of exercise into the mix in June. Of course I'm busy planting annuals and cleaning out my perennial gardens too. Oh, and I still have a few areas on my list to purge/declutter and organize. But I'm really wanting to get back into my quilting room in June!
Instead of going ga-ga on goals I'm going to keep it simple. One NewFO and one UFO are going on my list along with June's yellow RSC14 blocks and the Quilty Stitches cross stitch blocks. If I do more that would be great - but most importantly I just want to reintroduce sewing into my weekly routine.
For my NewFO I'm going to jump start my Threadbias PillowPop Sew Along participation by making the easy pillow for June called Photogenic. I've got some great large prints to choose from to make a pillow for our screen porch loveseat.
This will also be my Let's Book It Challenge project this month over at Vroomans Quilts. This is such a great book and I hope to catch up on the cute pillows I've missed later in the year.
And my UFO project for A Lovely Year of Finishes will be to finish Warm 16 Patches.
I will be in Vegas for the last week in June so I think I'd better get off to a fast start. August will be very busy as we help both of our kids move east... daughter to Columbus, OH and son to Rochester, NY. So hopefully I can find my footing in June, get some quilting projects done in July and then be ready to fill my empty nest in the fall with LOTS of sewing!
