April came and went

April seems like it came and went so fast.
it can't be because I am older, right? LOL
I didnt get as much accomplished as I wanted
but looking over the list I guess  I made good progress
this little strawberry was a happy diversion a friend
gave to me to cheer me up
I love it! so so cute
I think I will make it into a hotpad
it reminds me of my Aunt who wanted us to
have the reunion. she passed away so hoping
she can be with us in spirit on that day

this purple table topper is quilted ready for binding. 
maybe I can do that today

I spent a lot of the end of the month
consoling the cats who are missing Daddy
BIG time!  they are bickering more
and fighting over who gets to sleep on his side
or in his chair

I organized a few things for the reunion
got one box packed and another started

finished up the piggy banks of felt
and some wish bracelets

and chapstick keychains

planted some pansies and hyacinths
just for some color
the dark drab was getting depressing for sure

these two UFO blocks also became table toppers
and are in the box
dont mind the picture. the top one was pinned
as I had to stitch down the binding
it is purty now!

I worked a little on my oranges and will 
try and catch up for the month
I think I am a week behind so not too bad

gave hugs to this guys a lot
and also dealt with the contractor from hell
this month

finished this washcloth up but didnt take a finished picture
3 more to go

all the piggy banks laid out before finishing

this project never got touched so hoping I can find
my batting soon (or replenish)
and get a set of 4 placemats done for the reunion

and these need to be hemmed
so as soon as I get off this computer...........LOL

April was productive but not as much as I would have liked
I guess that song is true

"You can't always get what you want......."
but I can surely try!
How was your April?
Did you meet your goals?

Uhhh, nope! Because i really am not listing any goals this year--too much going on in our lives and goal lists make me anxious about deadlines which i used to deal with in my younger life everyday what with performances and teaching etc. So, for now, just going with the flow. BUT--I am amazed at all you've done--you go girl ;)))) great work hugs, Julierose

you have really done a lot this year! i think i will skip my listing because i am working on so many quilts that nothing is finished. I will have to check and see if i finished any thing at all said...

I haven't been doing goals, but I don't feel like I am getting a whole lot done.

April has flown by for me! I don't think I got as much done as you did! You did great!
