Hello May! - Studio Check In

Hello May!

from the farmer's market last weekend

It feels like May came out of nowhere! My mind and body are still stuck back in March or something. Where did April go? I don't know. I think I always feel a little short-changed by the shorter months. Give me 31 days! I need that extra day!

If you could have one extra, free day, a day with no obligations, what would you do with it?


Anyway, I thought it would be a good idea to have a little "studio" check in to sort of get my bearings straight. (I have to laugh when I say "studio" check in. My "studio" is a small space off the living room; but hey, it works for me for right now.) 

Currently working on:

  • Curved Piecing - I've been working on this one on and off for quite a while. I have a bunch of blocks made but I can't decide on a layout. 

  • Some secret sewing - I can't show you too much of this one yet but here's a pretty photo of some of the chain piecing I did last week.

May goals:
  • Obviously I really want to finish those two tops.
  • I want to make a library book bag for me and Mr.123quilt, like this one I made for friend a few years ago.
  • I need to make a mini mini for my first ever swap!
  • I have some more secret sewing to do, this time for the Opposites Attract blog hop.
  • I have about 9 fabric pulls set aside for new quilts and I'd like to start on one of those.
  • Maybe I'll come up with a plan to use this lovely bunch of fat quarters that my mom sent me as a surprise. Thanks, Mom!

I think that should keep me busy enough this month! What are you working on this May?

Until next time!

  1. Love the fabrics in the secret sewing! Looking forward to the reveal. Looks like you've got plenty to keep you busy!

  2. Oh fun! That secret sewing is always the best - the excitement of keeping it under wraps and the big unveil!!

  3. I think March and April blew by too quickly. I'm in serious denial that May is already here. Looks like you have plans for May to be jam packed full of fun.

  4. Oh yeah, you have so many fun looking projects to keep you busy. The design options for those curved blocks are endless - it would be so much fun to play with that! My April disappeared, hopefully May moves a little more slowly... Thanks for linking to Main Crush Monday. I'm looking forward to seeing your secret sewing revealed!

  5. Love the curved blocks. Looks like you are going to be very busy.
