I love this concept of being agle to have no guilt in starting something new. There is no pressure to finish, just start. Although I usually am a finisher, I am learning to let some thing sit until the next month or so for that part of the process without being concerned. Although, I think next month I need to work on that pile a little more so it doesn't overwhelm.
My official NewFO for May was my Monthly Doll Quilt Swap. The theme for the month was 'Go Modern', but my partner and I decided we would make a little quilt that represented the month of May for us. I chose a star flower pattern with little calico prints.
And my little dolly that goes with the quilt with special label.
Working on something old has made me go thru all those little hidey-holes and clear out some items I totally forgot about.
I was so embarressed to find these little stitcheries tucked in a box. They were a free stitch along with Paul Stoddard back in 2011. I had used a verigated purple/grey floss (not sure what brand) and the blocks were a little plain so I used my color pencils to lightly shade in the letters. A pretty purple/tan/grey mosiac print FQ worked perfectly for sashing and border.
My New was also my Monthly Simply Small Project w/Candy Charms. This pattern was given to us by Sherri at A Quilting Life to use in a small project. I have been on a bit of a pillow run for adding to the Christmas Box. I used up some odds/ends of Collecion for a Cause - MillBrook Series 1853 with muslin.
I finished my other monthly goals: Relaxing Round Robin(adding last round), RSC14 (green blocks), Let's Book It (Doorway to China), and Christmas Challenge (crayon roll-ups). I also had a little zip pouch for a swap, but totally forgot to take pictures, but it is safely at it's new home.
I will be linking up with Barbara at Cat Patches for NewFO
