One Monthly Goal :: April 2019

My April 2019 One Monthly Goal is going to be short and sweet because my non-quilting life is going to take front and center. My mommy is finally moving in with us! She is out of her apartment and staying in a friend's casita in the retirement park in Arizona where my grandparents first started spending their winters more than 30 years ago. They have both passed on, and after twenty years off and on, Mom is seeing her favorite spots before she and her Havanese, Murphy, come up to Ohio to live with us. I'm excited to have her closer, and to puppysit my furry brother while Mom works through her bucket list of adventures. 

I'm still plugging away on the Omigolly quilt I started last month. I hope to have that finished by early next month. 

This month, my goal is simply to finish the Project Linus mystery quilt I started last year. It was my second year doing the mystery. Project Linus is an organization that gifts quilts and blankets to kiddos in the hospital. My top is finished so all I have to do is quilt and bind it. That SHOULD be doable this month.

The theme this time was Sweet Violet's Bakery and Confectionary. The designer's original pattern was heavy on purple and pinks, but I wanted to make a version that a boy would love. Since my little guy loves, space, my confectionary takes place in space, and instead of being a flower, my Violet is a rocket.

My son enthusiastically approved. 

You'll be able to find pictures of my progress on this quilt as #peaceloveandintergalacticdonuts To see what I'm currently working on, including my 2019 Brain Injury quilt, follow me at deJongDreamHouse.
