So, it's time for me to reflect on how I did. Were there goals accomplished? (Why yes there were; so glad you asked.)
Yoga mat cover Done!
First finish of the quarter. It has seen a lot of use already.
Oakie outfit (for the wedding) Done!
A more dashing penguin has never graced a wedding like this little guy. Heard some of his fans at the wedding gasping with pleasure when he presented the rings.
Wedding sewing & crafting Done!
|Had to share: my kids walked me down the aisle|
On the appointed date, the wedding was happening, whether the crafty things got done or not. Almost everything got completed. Things that didn't get finished were just not important enough to be part of the ceremony, right?
Two rows for Relaxing Robin Done!
5. Rainbow bathrobe Untouched
6. Mending/hemming for summer wearing Making progress
Is it obvious that I don't love hand sewing?
Binding for Sweetie's t-shirt quilt Done!
Two blocks for daughter's t-shirt quilt Done!
A big splash as this quilt got underway. Sewed monster paper-pieced blocks at a retreat, and called it good for the quarter. Daughter is looking forward to this quilt becoming more of a focus for me.
Wow, I think I did pretty good!
Interestingly, of course, were the projects that crept in and tried to insinuate themselves into my "work on me!" line of sight. Namely...
Baby's Book of Computers
OMG, cutest book everrr! Had a baby birthday party to attend, and I could not resist whipping this pattern up.
Scrappy Bargello Wallhanging
Couldn't have predicted this would become my major focus as the wedding drew near, but there you go. It was an idea I couldn't get out of my mind, so I gave in and devoted far too much sewing time to this (too much time given there was a wedding to be planned and executed).
Russian Wedding Rings Cowl
My sister surprised me over Memorial Day weekend with a hand-knit cowl in the wedding colors. I have since started making my own version, using longtime stashed yarns.
Time to start planning for the next quarter. Maybe this "planning" thing will catch on with me...
