Some months meeting my goals are a breeze and then other months (I bet you know where I'm going with this, don't you?) are a Big Fat 0.
Goals met in April - 0
Yep - A big fat 0
But don't think for one minute that I'm unhappy about that! Check this out, as you know my daughter is graduating this month. Oh you didn't know? didn't care. That's okay. This month I've been busy working on her quilt. I have almost finished piecing it, still have the border and stars to complete.
So here's the real cool part about this quilt. I bought this pattern and fabric several years ago. I've never made Serena a quilt because she really doesn't want one. So a month ago she comes home with some shoes on the color as the background fabric and says "This is my new favorite color!" Whoa, I'm thinking that's the exact same color as the quilt I've been thinking of making for her.
I get the fabric and instructions and start in. I had so many problems with this quilt. Some have been my fault and some have been the instructions. I was sewing up one of the stars and when the block didn't go together I realized they reversed the paper piecing template. Oy Vey! I spent quite a few hours with the seam ripper.
This is just my opinion. I love the white stars with the white of the panel of verses rather than how it's pictured on the pattern. See? What do you think?
So now on to May Goals
#1 And the most important. Finish Serena's Quilt
#2 BOM Terrier Town
#3 Sulky BOM
#4 Work on the Christmas Stockings
So just those four will be more than I can do, but I'll give it my best.
