May OMG

It’s time again to set a goal for the month.

If things loosen up with the third wave still going strong in April, I’m not sure if I will be able to travel to the studio to get some quilting done and finish some quilts. Hopefully getting more needles in arms will allow more in person meetings or travel, but here in British Columbia we have been told it will be 4 months before we can get our second shot.

When things do loosen up and I can travel to my studio I need to finish this quilt for my granddaughter’s best friend in case they get to travel back to Canada. They have tickets booked from Mexico for the end of May. It’s not looking great. The first lockdown, my son was en route to work but was turned around and spent lockdown at home with his family. This time he might be locked down at work, possibly until November.

The quilt was made from a pattern, Waltzing With Bears by Sandra from MMM Quilts which I modified by adding more blocks/borders.

I am working on this pile of fabric goodness;

I’ve been collecting batik scraps for a quilt for my bed. Some are my scraps, some were prizes from Maryellen and Emily, and some were gifted from a wonderful friend, Susan. Now I just need to finalize my layout and see how many more blocks I need to make. I’m setting a goal of having this finished to flimsy stage by the end of the month.

My third and fourth goals are to finish the two pattern test quilt tops I need to make by month end. No pretty pictures of fabric pulls for these two 😉

I’d also like to finish my panel quilt challenge this month. It is sewn but again, I need to travel to my studio to finish quilting it. 😢

The only other must do on my list is to finish writing my blog post for the upcoming blog hop.

In other words I have a list that will or will not be done due to so many variables with our lives still being effected by Covid-19.

Thank you for stopping by to read my post. 😄 Carol

Linking up with Elm Street Quilts May OMG

I have been fondling fabric and creating things with fabric and fiber for as long as I can remember. My children had homemade clothes, blankets, canning and quilts most of their lives. Now I create goodies to share! Hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoy making them! When I am not creating with fiber or fabric I keep busy with Dear Heart, kids, grandkids, great grandkids.

  1. Hi Carol! It’s hard to set firm goals when so many rely on outside factors well beyond your control. Just being flexible and not stressing about it seems to be the only way to go forth. {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne
