Goals . . .

Here are my Goals for the week of June 4, 2018:

1. Crazy Quilt
- finish stitching block 2 DONE

2. Mystery #2
- begin assembly DONE,
as well as sandwiched and ready for quilting

3. Baby Quilt
- "git 'er done!!"
no progress

4. Christmas PJs
- get at least one pair done
I have fabric and pattern

5. June BOMs
- draw off Year in the Garden downloaded
Color Bear downloaded
Color Challenge downloaded
Starry Night downloaded
Fall into a Quilt  downloaded
Summer Fun downloaded

Some other things I did managed to get done:

The garden is in and all the compost we've collected/made over the winter is in the garden. It looks like really rich soil. I managed to get it done before the forecast rains came over the weekend.

Mending . . . does anyone enjoy it? Mostly I don't mind, except when I let it accumulate - which is what I usually do :( 
It's done now :)

Wednesday was my BOM sewing class. This month, we worked on "bobbin work". It's done for texture and it ended up we either loved it or hated it. Me . . . I'm still on the fence :)

It ends up kind of messy, so I'm not in love with it.

Thanks for stopping by,

Wishing you a day filled with kindness.

Love that crazy stitching!! You're making good progress on your goals. No, I don't do mending, but I do supervise, lol - my poor son had to learn to sew on a button! Not sure how I feel about bobbin work but your flowers are pretty. Garden looks great and such darling fawns - good thing you have that fence, otherwise you wouldn't have a garden, lol!!!!!

I know finishing the CQ took a lot of time, so you did a great job, even if all your goals weren't completed. AND the garden is in! Yay! It was very timely, because there's nothing like a good rain to set new plants. Good goals for this week, too. I'm destined to be behind a while, thanks to the shop hop. I should have stayed home. LOL

Thank you, Allie. I hate that I don't get comments emailed to me any more. Thought I missed that.

Seeing so many news reports about deer walking around all over towns. We've had them for years. As much as I love seeing them, they can be very pesky as my hosta are suffering from all the nibbling. I must protect my veg garden or we'd be suffering.

Thanks for the positive comments on my projects.

Oh Susan, shop hopping is usually worth the trip. Your projects and homework suffered, but by your posts not so much the budget. And you had such sweet companions.

Thanks for your compliments, but especially being my cheerleader on CQ. It's still a daunting task, but I'm taking it one blade at a time and getting things done . . .

on to FNSI :)
