Wait A Minute! What Happened to April?


It came and went before I got anything posted. I did have something written out but never got around to posting it. So much for my posting on a weekly basis or at least a more regular one.
Here’s what I wrote in April on the 15th to be exact. You’ll see why I mention the date in a minute.

A Day of Finishing.

Yesterday (April 14th) was a day for finishing. This is a rarity for me as I tend to be a starter not a finisher. Not because I don’t want to finish; not because I’m really lazy; and not because I’m stuck. I just get sidetracked by something else and start another project. Occasionally it’s because I’m out of or can’t find something for the task (and while I’m looking for it I find something else that captures my attention). Sometimes it’s a request from a family member or friend. So I have a lot of starts and very few finishes.


Spring wreath with Butterflies

What I finished yesterday (April 14th)
A spring wreath to delight my grandson (stopped for a few days due to shortage of yarn, the a few more days as I wanted to add butterflies so I had to find a pattern, decide on colors etc.). I saw this on Pinterest and couldn't resist. He likes it – they were studying butterflies in preschool at the time.




March Quilt Block Jar of Strawberries

April Quilt Block

Quilt Block for quilt guild. OK I was 2 blocks behind on this. I’m not the best stitcher and my machine has been giving me trouble not to mention a dull blade in my rotary cutter and not having the right fabric. But I finished the two and did the next one due in May too.

May Quilt Block
Taxes. Well I started them and filed them at the stroke of midnight! Hey I normally file on the 15th!
Also went to church
grocery shopped
cleaned the pool
and took my first swim of the season. 
Wish all of my days were as productive!

Happy Stitching!

Wow, I really find your work lovely and astonishing! Imagine, you have a project every month and you could finish it as neatly and pretty as possible! Plus, you have to errands for your home and other stuff? Wow! That’s truly superb! Great job! You’re inspirational. You could inspire more through your works of art.
