Okay. Here’s my crafty list for May 2023. It’s a lot and very similar to my April list but I already know that my life is going to be crazy this month. Both my kiddos are graduating and I’ll be celebrating with them. My daughter from college and my son from high school. So I’ll get done what I can.
#1 – Lucretia’s Journey – My goal is to quilt and finish finish finish this flimsy.
Last month I was able to get this quilted and then procrastinated. I only had one weekend to work on this as the other weekends were booked with other things. This month I plan to do the finishing steps – binding, label and picture.
#2 Plum Fusion – Finish the top!
#3 – The Quilty Pleasure Saturday Sampler – the April block
#4 – Tuella and Friends – This is #4 on my WIP list for 2023 and I generally like to go in order. That’s just how my brain works. But the next couple are ones I work on at retreats and Tuella is not one I am able to work on at retreats. It’s machine applique and I need to match the thread when working on it. So i don’t bring all my thread to retreats and often find myself not able to work on this project. My goal for this month is to do block one. If memory serves, The background is pieced and the applique pieces cut and fused on. I just need to applique it.
#5 – Mountain Mist –
#6 – Ornaments – I finished the embroidery on all my ornaments last month and I think I forgot to update my post. I need to attach them to the final backing and then do some blanket stitching all around before this can me done.
#7 – Sashiko… I am keeping this on the list but this will have to wait until my ornaments are finished. There is just not enough time in the day.
#8 – Raining Cats and Dogs- this is an old hand quilting project that I set aside. I am adding this on this list to remember it and figure out how to get this done. Ideally It’s one of those projects I spend a little time on each day but I have a lot of those now and so need to think about my game plan.
I have been meaning to tell you, there is a set of quilting patterns for the Plum Fusion quilt at Wasatch quilting. They are digital, but they may give you some ideas when it comes time to quilt this pretty top.
