I plan on participating again with the "Something Old, Something New" challenge. We all have that old project that really should be pulled out and finished. AND who needs an excuse to start something new.
I did finish putting together April's Something Old - Scrappy Chain QAL project. It needs a couple of borders to be truely finished, but I have to think on that(I hate borders).
My May Something Old will be to finally put these stitcheries into a wallhanging. This was a little stitch along in 2011 with Paula Stoddard who now works at Quilty Pleasures.
April's Something New was the Triangle QAL, so love how this piece turned out. May's project will be, also, my project for A Quilting Life 'simply small projects' - which is a pillow.
Again, being given the OK to start something new - yeah!! April's was my doll quilt swap and I will be using the same for May.
April's project was the large block quilt - May's project will be the Asian fabrics for the Doorway to China pattern.
I have the last round of the Relaxing Round Robin to complete. Plan on playing with my green scraps for the Rainbow Challenge. And I have a small project for the Make it Homemade Christmas Challenge.
A small list for me, but I also have May for Me all this month. Making ME time will be a highlight this month. I'm hoping Spring will arrive sometime during May - our trees have yet to pop their leaf buds and the only flowers have been a few crocus, a handful of daffodils, and some early tulips - the winter was hard on them (or the squirrels and chipmonks). I would really like to include some time in the flower beds.
