One Monthly Goal for June

Here it is, well into June and I still haven't posted my One Monthly Goal (OMG).  I was itching to get back into the sewing room when we returned home, but I haven't stitched a stitch.  It may have something to do with the fact that I can't find my cutting or sewing table, and the ironing needs catching up.  It was all a little crazy in the lead up to our big holiday.  I'll get there.

I sent my machine in to have a spa treatment while we were away.  There was nothing wrong with her, but I thought a good clean up would do her the world of good.  The best thing is that the original light has been swapped out for a brand spanking new LED light.  What a transformation!!  I'm looking forward to getting sewing with her again.

So, what is my goal for the month.  I've decided that I want to make eight blocks towards the Splendid Sampler 2. That's two a week, which should be doable, even though I haven't made a start as yet.  We have the long weekend coming up, so I may get going then. 

There are quite a few Foundation Paper Piecing blocks and I still have to have a think when I start them, so my plan is to work on those; select my fabrics and then make a heap while the method is in my head.  That's the plan anyway.

In the background, the Rainbow Scrap Challenge colour this month is dark blue, so I'll work on those as well.

Also, I'm trying to have one finish each month for One Project a Month.  I'm not sure what I will do for that, but it will be something quick and easy.

I'm linking up over at Elm Street Quilts with Patty.  Pop over and see what the others are planning on doing.  I'm sure they will be more ambitious than mine.

Good luck with your foundation pieced blocks, I find that too, do as many as possible while I can so I get them sewn together the right way!! Good luck with your goals.

I find foundation piecing tricky but I'm sure you'll get them done.

I hope your foundation piecing is going well, and you are making great progress on your monthly goal. I can not wait to see how your blocks come together!
