One Monthly Goal: May 2017


May! May? It can't possibly be May already! It's my son's last month of second grade, and his last few weeks in the school we have loved. Fortunately, he will be in the same school, but our lease is up and we are moving to a new building in the fall. Still, he's been in that building for four happy years. We are all feeling a little sentimental these days.

I'm also feeling grateful that we are feeling better. D and I have been trading sickness for the last two months, and we are both ready to being feeling better. I have some quilting to do!

Quilting:
  • Lainey's Ladybug: I finished the top last month, now I need to finish it up and gift it. The recipient just figured out it was for her and can't wait to give it to her daughter.
  • Stella's quilt: finalize design and start. I'm having such a block with this one. This quilt is for a friend who lost her baby girl at birth. I want to make a quilt out of Stella's onesies, but I don't want to cut them because that doesn't feel right to me in this case. Any ideas?!?
  • Charity quilt: Brutus. I'm nearly done with the top. I'm not loving couple of the pixels, so I'm considering making a few swaps. 
  • Charity quilt: campers
  • Wedding quilts: design quilts for J&T and E&J. J and T got married last weekend. I knew I wouldn't finish their quilt before the wedding, but I made the first block on their wedding day. My heart wants to work on this quilt, but I really need to finish up my other UFOs first.
  • quilt from Dare to Be Square
  • Bee Hive 2017: complete May block
  • Milky Way Quilt along: complete May block
  • Hexies: total of 100 
  • Start free motion practice blocks
Sewing:
  • Weighted blanket for Niels
  • Make second magnetic fidget 
  • Sketch out rocket blanket
  • car poncho
  • make a sewing apron
One Monthly Goal is...
Finish pixelated Brutus. He's taking up my design wall, so it's time for him to get finished!
