My Goals for the Month of May

Here we go again, time to set my goals for the month.

Firstly, my stitching goals.....

1.    ONE MONTHLY GOAL
Decisions, decisions....It is so strange not having a logical go to project.  
I think that I will finish off my Rainbow Scrap Challenge cushion from last year that features pineapple blocks in 30s fabrics. It had come to a stand still, as I need to make one more block and there isn't a logical colour to use for that block.  I'll have a play, make the final block and put it all together.  I'm looking forward to getting it finished.

Thanks to Patty from Elm Street Quilts for giving us the encouragement needed.

2.    WOOFA CHALLENGE
I'm once again keeping this simple, by using my OMG project to tick this box as well.  That will mean two successes in May.......or not...... Thanks to Cheryll for this fun challenge.

3.    CHRISTMAS CHALLENGE
I'll keep plugging away at my little Love and Hugs stitcheries.  They are super cute....when I get them done......

4.    ONE PROJECT A MONTH
This now means that I will have three successes........or none.........unless I end up making something else random during the month.  Who knows?

5.    JOCELYN PROUST BLUE QUILT
There are eight different fabrics in the range and I am making five blocks using each fabric.  I have completed the blocks in five of the fabrics, so only three fabrics to go.  That sounds better than the fact that I have fifteen blocks to make.  I'm working in batches of five blocks at a time, so will aim to at least have another five blocks completed.  We'll see how we go.  They are fun to make, once I get a system going.

It's not a lot of goals this month, so hopefully will be achieved and maybe a little extra.  Wish me luck.

Now for the usual non stitching goals.

1.    READ A BOOK
 
I recently picked up a book by Patricia Wrightson, the author of my favourite book "The Nargun and the Stars".  It is just aimed at young adults, so should be a nice quick read.

2.    TRY A NEW RECIPE

I'm really enjoying this each month, especially as there is never any plan in advance.

3.    FRIDAY FUN DAY

No plan as yet, but something will crop up.

4.    HAVE A WEEKEND AWAY IN THE CARAVAN

Once again, no plan as yet, just a vague idea.

I'll see how I have gone when I check in at the end of the month.

No idea of your sewing but a four colour block using colours you have already.....I saw blocks like that the other day and they looked good...... If it works for the quilt and setting.....
