Short List – May goals

  • Top 3 piecing quilts – Dancing with the Stars, Grassy Creek, Scrappy Stars Around the Corner
  • Hand work – Simple days, Raining Cats and Dogs
  • Knitting – morning socks, Weasley Sweater (front)

How I did last week –

Blooming Bouquets #2 Cheerful

  1. For my cross stitch – Blooming Bouquets #2: Cheerful – I stitched 4 times last week and below is a picture of where I left off.
  2. continue knitting on my morning socks and do at least 10 rows on my Weasley Sweater. – DONE
  3. Gardening – Plant the seedlings Julie gave me, as well as the others I bought this weekend. 🙂 – I did get a number of these planted but I still have a few more to plant. We got hit with a brief heat wave and my seedlings wilted by the end of each day of heat. I had to water twice a day to keep them going and it looks like they will be fine.
  4. Quilting
    1. finish quilting the orange quilt top – DONE
    2. Simple Days – continue embroidering the 3rd block of the January clue – worked on this and I’m still working on it.
    3. Dancing with the stars – continue piecing more of block A – worked on this a bit more and I’m still working on it.
    4. Pull out Grassy Creek and start clue – NOT done
