April's Over?

I can't believe it is the start of May today - boy, did April fly by! I had a pretty good month in the sewing room. I totalled 32.75 hours this month, thanks in large part to the the retreat that my mom and I had.

I finished the following projects:
- Judy Laquidara class, all blocks for quilt top

- Lois' large and small Irish Chain tops
- Joann's quilt minus the outer border
- 2 scrap bags
- Miniature Ohio star block for Barbara
- Hemmed my living room curtains - this was probably the biggest accomplishment of all, even though it took under an hour. I have had the curtains up but not hemmed for almost a year and a half!
- Loaded EQ5 on my computer so I can start playing with EQ

And, after this week, I can finally show you Curtis' quilt. He came with his family to celebrate Jenna's 5th birthday this week and I was able to give him his quilt. It still has to be labelled, but I will get it back when the label is ready to sew on (my mom is making it on her embroidery machine).

On the books for May are to continue using my new plan for setting goals and getting things done, so I will no longer list my monthly goals here. I did pretty well in week 1, and when I didn't want to work on any of the "do this week" items, I could look into the "do this month" list and pick something from it.
