I can't believe it's already May. Not that I'm complaining. I'm SO ready for summer. The good news is, I'm finally feeling better. I have a head cold that just won't quit (maybe if spring ever comes to Minnesota to stay, I can be done with that, too), but at least the pain in my shoulder and arm is nearly gone. I love my chiropractor!
The bad news... there really isn't any bad news in the grand scheme of things. Life is good. My two daughters, grandson and I just returned from a long-awaited trip to Chicago, my two sons will celebrate birthdays this week, and a beautiful, warm spring has got to be just around the corner.
However, I am behind. Remember the UFO and GED challenges from New Years?... Missed April entirely and now I have projects assigned for May. The Block-a-Palooza quilt I had hoped to finish for someone's birthday? Well, that'll be one belated birthday gift. And soon there'll be a need for one more baby quilt in the family. Guess it's time to fire up the sewing machine...
But first, a quick update on what I have finished. For the March UFO Challenge, I cheated just a bit, switching my project order around so I could get Emily's dress finished in time for Easter. My back was still pretty bad when I started, and just getting the pattern cut out was a challenge, but I think that little push was just what I needed. It felt great to actually get something finished.
So cute. :o)
My GED challenge for March was the Christmas Bear panel. I actually had it finished just before I started having health issues, just never had a chance to blog about it.
I'm happy to report, all that snow is now GONE. The grass is nearly all green, and there are definite signs of life in my garden. I guess spring has been slowly sneaking up on us after all...
A colorwash finish for August.......
