One-third of the way...

I'm sitting at my computer on a Friday afternoon thinking about the fact that one-third of the year is already gone. It's actually difficult to wrap my head around the movement of time. Four months ago, I decided that blogging might help me get some work done around here. I think that in many ways the idea has brought success. However, the prime idea was to finish projects that I had already started, and what I've accomplished has been a mixture of many things. So, I started putting my sewing into categories. I have real unfinished projects, I have stash projects, I have brand new projects where I grudgingly have to go out and buy fabric (hahaha), I have class prep projects, and finally the Block Swap Adventure.

Although I felt as if I kept very busy during April, I don't have that much to show for it. I made a ribbon quilt top for a friend, made a Judy Niemeyer quilt top, "Reflections", made the red and white New York Beauty for a class, bound four quilts, and participated in my first block swap..

So May is here, and I'm plugging away at the new setting for my brown star BOM class. I only have one more piece to construct for the corners.


Then, I need to go over to the shop and pick up the other six star blocks and put it all together. This is what I have so far...


I also finished constructing all of the morning glory squares, put them together, and embroidered yellow French knots in the center of each flower.


Now, a border?


I guess I need a new stash pick, don't I? hmmmmm...

Holly,

I'm posting here the link to the quilting blogs website, since I'm not sure if the address I gave you earlier was correct.

Have a good day!
