Month in Review

It's kind of sobering to think that 2014 is already 1/3 done. My oh my where do the days go? Since May is looking to be rather busy for me with 3 weekends of activities including our son's graduation and the expectation that spring WILL arrive this month with all of the related tasks I'm going light on my May goals.

But first I should quickly review April... 1 quilt, 2 scarves and Quilty Stitches blocks made it to the Finish Line in April. With so much going on in my life outside of quilting last month I feel quite good when I look at this mosaic.
I am really digging in and trying hard to change some ingrained habits which is rather challenging. Boring stuff like processing papers, drinking water, getting daily exercise and shedding stuff from all corners of our home. Not very blog worthy topics. I've also been spending time getting back to using a daily planner which is a habit I abandoned along with my career in 2001. You might actually see a bit of this process on the blog in May because it is making a difference already.

But, let's move on to May - a bright and shiny NEW month to explore! Here are my goals for May:
  • Finish Warm 16 Patch
  • Finish Strip Stacks in Blue & Brown
  • Get Caught up with RSC14
  • Stay Caught up with Quilty Stitches
  • May Schnibble X Rated
For A Lovely Year of Finishes my goal will be to finish Strip Stacks in Blue & Brown. I'm thinking it would make a nice graduation present for our son. He has always been one to pull a blanket or throw over himself while watching TV or napping. It makes me so happy to see him wrapped up in one of my quilts over the last year!
I'm planning to get back to a regular blogging schedule in May as well. To say I've missed it would be an understatement.


  1. It is always a great feeling when I see someone actually using a quilt I made for them. You can almost feel the love.

  2. Catching up on my blog reading - looks like you've been busy as usual. Great finishes!

  3. I like the look of the blue and brown strip stacks. Good luck with your plans.

  4. Will be great to see more of you again! We all have lean months. I'm going through a couple myself. Just too busy with work and family to get stuck into sewing. Living vicariously through blogs and Instagram!

  5. Love that brown and blue strip quilt.
