Just Three for April...

Well I went from a whopping 3/3 for the first couple months of the year to 2/3 last month…and the trend continues but with a few very good reasons!

So my plans were to:

1. Complete the Sisters' Ten blocks for March  - check!

2.  Start up the Anna Maria Horner feather blocks at the BMQG Retrest - check!

3.  Hexies - Nope.  Not even a little bit.  But I definitely wasn't slacking or anything.  Instead I completed my Asbury Challenge mini, On the Boardwalk. And on top of that, I started a custom quilt too!  So I think it's a pretty good excuse for letting the hexies sit a while longer.

With that said, my goals for April are...

1. Complete the Sisters' Ten blocks for April - and on top of that, I'm going to try to get them done before the last week of the month this time.

2.  Finish up the custom quilt mentioned above - and I mean completely finish it!  I'm currently working on a row of paper pieced blocks for the back and it's also going to have a bit of hand embroidery and applique - but more to share on that soon...

3.  That quilt is going to have to be finished up, because I already have an "order" for another custom job!  This time, it's going to be a baby shower gift that's already scheduled for June.  I'd rather be able to get it started this month so that it can be finished by mid-May.  No procrastinating when it's not for myself!

Pretty ambitious goals for this month and next, but I'm confident I can get it done!
