Hello! Let me first confess that I did not take this picture. I tried all morning, but my Baltimore Orioles would not cooperate. Still, they are fantastically colorful and entertaining at my feeder. I have seen up to six at a time, and the males are so bright!
I bought three yards of solids on Saturday, but considering that I was actually standing in Fabric Shack, I think that shows amazing will power. We stopped in Waynesville, OH on the way to the Reds ball game to celebrate my husband’s 60th birthday. Yesterday was a Derby Party. Therefore, nothing was finished this week.
This week: +3 yards, -0 yards
YTD: +64.75 yards, -93.5 yards
Net stash used 2014: -27.75 yards
Quilt gray and yellow quilt. Finished. See 1 and 2 here.
Make commissioned baby quilt in navy.
3. Make a floral quilt. No, I didn’t. I made a beach quilt instead.
Design a block for my Slow Quilt. I’m collecting the fabrics. Done.
Here’s the block I’m using in the Slow Quilt. It’s a version of Storm at Sea. Saturday’s purchase was the last of the fabric (I think).
1. Finish bright floral quilt.
2. Make blocks for Slow Quilt.
3. Donate older baby quilts to Project Linus.
4. Commit to a small pouch/bag project and gather supplies.
These are not ambitious goals, I know, but they reflect the fact that it is May. I will be away some, and working on the yard and garden, so I’ll be lucky to accomplish these.
Does anyone know of a site that has taken up this Getting It Done/ Monthly Goals project? If there’s not, would any of you be interested in linking here? Please let me know.
I hope you’re all progressing with your Stash and quilting goals. I’m linking up with Sunday Stash Report at Patchwork Times.

You are making such great progress. Put quilting time on your calendar so you make sure you get some time to sew.

Quilting always seems slow down in the spring and the fall for me. Wish we had Orioles here, they are gorgeous.
