Well here we are "end and beginning" time--
we ended the month of April and now have May to look forward to and all it's newness and new plans and new goals and for some of us--a new age!!!
My goal for April was working at finishing these blocks into a quilt top--
I did get it to this part--
and then the problems started in--again!!! How to finish it off--tried to do it how the pattern showed--with triangle pieces on the border--but my pieces just would not come out to size--and I spent more than one day working on them and recutting and resewing--then cut some strips and thought I would use just straight strips with a strip of white between the them--but --that was just not approved --by the quilt--soooo--I was ready to just leave off any kind of border--but then this idea 'struck' me--
So this is what I am working on now--I am hand sewing the red rick rack on now--So I did work on this top all month--just did not get it finished--yet!!!!
But I did get this one finished during the month of April--
This is square--I have to lay them on my floor for photos and so they all look crooked!!
And here is where I am on my slow stitching project--
I am on block #7 now--a big white barn--(this one also looks crooked--but is not!!) and this is slow--cause I seem to have to always be taking out sections as the count is off or something!!! But it is coming right along--!!!
Now for May's goals--the dirty dozen number for May is #8 and that is this one--
The blue hearts--I did a couple years ago--and this one should be fun--cause of all the new blue fabrics I just got in--I just know a couple of them just might want to join these hearts for borders--or????
And then we have the red fabric color for this month and my '4' blocks from the book--Plus I am starting a new stitch along that has to do with hexagon's --old linens--lace and beads--oh wait--
I was going to take this month off and 'spring clean'--someone forgot to do that in March??????
HAVE FUN WITH MAKING YOUR MAY'S GOALS--
