May in Review

This month seems to have flown by and here we are on the cusp of summer -- it's supposed to be in the mid 80's here all week and limited chance of evening thunderstorms. I have to rub it in some because I know some of my readers may be in the area that got SNOW last weekend -- though hopefully none of you are in the area of Texas that saw massive flooding. Summer time to me means something a little different this year as I am trying to get out to more festivals and events and in between times find time for family and crafting and perhaps even a small trip somewhere (but I am quite a homebody). 

So what did I accomplish this month ----

  • participated in 2 craft shows (one went better than the other) 
  • Joined along in the Easiest Sew Along Ever hosted by Kim and completed my project timely -- I even fought with the metallic thread for this one 

  • I completed the Zakka project for my Guild's swap -- everyone brought in a bag of scraps to exchange and the we made an item that the initial owner of the scraps wanted to receive. I was "lucky" to receive the guild leader's scraps of Kate Spain Central Park. There were very specific instructions that went along with these scraps but I think I pulled it off. She requested either a small pouch, basket or piano runner -- so here's what I came up with (and that runner is reversible)

    Not many finishes but items that I am happy to have created. June goals are looming but I think I am going to focus on getting into more events and finishing up some of those UFO's and maybe try my hand at a few more pouches -- though I am still not a fan of zippers but I feel more warmly about them than I did before. 

    Happy Quilting everyone --- What's on your table for June?
