It's time for my monthly check in on my progress on projects and I might as well get to the bottom line right from the start.
Here are my stats at the end of April and May:
Starting UFO 19
Finished YTD 3 (Goal 11)
Started YTD 3 (Planned 6)
Ending UFO 19 (Goal 14)
Veterans YTD 12 (Goal 40)
That's right, it's totally unchanged. But I'm OK with that because May wasn't about me and my projects is was about my family and friends.
It was about balance.
I could easily be a hermit who never leaves home and spend all of my time making things. But that makes for a very boring person. We all need some balance. I don't have children to force that balance on me but I still have family and a few people who, at least privately, will admit that I'm a friend. Am insane, hermit friend who glues trash to her basement walls, but still a friend.
Anyway, my real accomplishments for May were:
- Take my Mom to New Mexico to attend my cousin's sons wedding
- Have my friend from England visit for 3 weeks
- Spend a glorious week with my family at the beach
I think these are major accomplishments but I'm not going anywhere in June! It's 100% back to my normal hermit self because an introvert can only take so much peopleing.
But I did make some good progress on a few projects.
I got a border added to the postage stamp quilt and found a black fabric that matches good enough to use for the last border and binding. It's on the way from eQuilter.
I did a little mosaic work on the new wall.
I also finished my class sample for the Ruling Rulers class at The Longarm Network. I don't count it as an official "finish" because it's "work", not a project. But it is done and the class is Saturday, June 17. If you have been wanting to learn how to use rulers on the longarm come join me at The Longarm Newtork near Richmond, VA.
So, how did you do on your UFO lists in May?
I'm Vicki Welsh and I've been making things as long as I can remember. I used to be a garment maker but transitioned to quilts about 20 years ago. Currently I'm into fabric dyeing, quilting, Zentangle, fabric postcards, fused glass and mosaic. I document my adventures here.
