May's UFO---SOCKS!

Boy are the knitting ladies going to be excited to hear that my socks I started back in October are the UFO of the month.  I can't wait to show them a finished project. 

I finished them yesterday!

It has been very chaotic here this month.  We have had car accidents, boss' retire unexpectedly, extra hours at work and a venture or two into the basement with tornado warnings.

My socks!
I watched a neighbor child the other night.  We made a quick quilt.  It turned out so cute.  I am hoping to get some pics. 

I hoping to have more time next month to write.  I have been lurking and keeping on all the blogs.
My big news is that I have lost 12 lbs. with weight watchers.

April UFO is Done!

Here it is.  I decided to stay up late.  Sew lots and do not much else for the last 2 days.  I did take a break to mow the lawn, do laundry and attend a choir concert.  It has lots of strings that need to DSC00365 (2)_1_1be trimmed and binding that needs tacking.  I am also not thoroughly impressed with my quilting in the orange border.  I like the concept, but, Lola thinks it looks like toes.  She has some strange feet phobia.  I am patiently waiting to find out what the May UFO Challenge is.  Lola would really like it if I went back and finished January’s UFO, the dreaded Alaskan Christmas Quilt.  Can you say problems?  It is the “lets have the fabric bleed all over everything quilt”.  I am hoping for #8….Christmas Table Runner.  This would be a quick one and it would give me time to paint the inside of the house before the girls finish school for the year.
Here’s to a few days of not quilting….the family would like to spend some time with me.
I would love to hear from you mom’s out there.  What would you like for Mother’s Day?   I am thinking of a few things for mine.  I am always open to creative ideas.  I also am having a hard time answering that question for my own daughters.  It was suggested that I get the gift of the family straightening my sew room—NOOOOOOO! Lola also has a little OCD about organization.  I find this funny when I open her dresser drawers.
Happy Quilting,
