May seemed like such a long month and already June is flying by. June is only one day shorter but it seems so much shorter as the month is quickly flying by. Actually I am farther ahead on my BOM progress than other month's but have so many additional side projects that I just don't seem to ever get around to, that it is starting to be stifling.
A lot of that is because my co-worker retired a month ago and as her replacement is yet to be announced it has left me very busy and working longer hours. In the meantime, I savor any time I can get to the sewing studio and strive for some sort of balance between creating and family time.
Really what is so different about that...it seems to be the norm.... Ok enough sobbing from me.
Here is a little of what I've accomplished.
This month's Sew Kitschy block from Quiet Play
This was a nice little block to put together and is looking so good next to all the others. Nice pitcher of lemonade in the garden anyone? Or is that possibly a cold pitcher of beer!!!
I also have been having fun making Kristy's Happily Ever After set of Fairy tale blocks. I hope to put them all together for a baby quilt this fall. I just completed the Little Red Riding Hood block.
Yep, Brave Little Red Riding Hood is walking past a field of frogs. I figured a little whimsy was all right seeing that the recipient is going to be a little wee one.
I started work on Cinderella this evening but Monday's are our favorite TV show's night so it is far from finished but Red Riding Hood is number five of eight patterns and Cinderella will be number six, so I am pleased with the progress that is being made on this set. You can find Kristy's set of Happily Ever After Bundle patterns here for $10.00 or individually priced at $2.95 each.
My Medallion Along Quilt top is current with the addition of May's flying geese around her. I will find out Thursday at the PMGQ meeting what will be adding to it in the upcoming month.
I also pulled off one of the few surprises in my marriage to this great guy by gifting him a Seahawks Super Bowl Jersey. He was thrilled and looks great in it if I say so myself. I also tricked him into cooking us breakfast over the campfire but NOT in his new shirt.
Hope your day was extra special, too!
And GO HAWKS!!!
