Once home I made a list of all the things that I needed or wanted to do, some with 'do by' dates - it was rather LOOOOONG! Two weeks later, and I am getting there, but unfortunately it is becoming circular! Things that were there at the start and were crossed off quite early are now appearing again! The first job was to adapt the May Conduit and send it off to by published on the web, now I am beginning to look at the June edition.
Of course the grocery shopping is always there, but this week took rather longer than usual. There being no midweek slots at Tesco for some reason, I decided to try the new Lidl's which meant I finished up at Sainsbury's. As you can guess I wasn't greatly impressed.
Anyway, here are some of my successes.
The patchwork hexagons that I did in the van are now made into a drawstring bag, and the greetings cards I also made are finished and packed. Both these destined for my stall when the garden is open in aid of St Barnabas Hospice.
For the same reason, I have tidied the planting area in the patio and bought new herbs. That in itself being not only a success but a miracle as I hate gardening, even on that small scale.
I have spent quite a lot of time printing photos, some for the club exibition on Saturday, but mostly for the National Scrap Booking Day 10 hour crop last weekend.. I was actually surprised how little I got done in all that time. The main challenge was 'a week in my life', which for me covered 3 layouts, then there was a 'spring bling' challenge for which I used photos of Chloe actually taken in the Autumn! There were other challenges that I didn't get round to, but can use for LOs later. A rather sad day because Jess, our leader is leaving the area so this was our last get together.
The waiscoats that I started in Cornwall at Easter are at last finished. I was putting them off as there was plenty time but eventually felt that I really wanted them done and away. I think they are a strange mix of too formal and too childish, but they are what was requested so who am I to argue?
Finally, I caught up with the Mystery Garden Quilt. The first two panels are now attached and the third one is done as far as the instructions went. The next part comes at the beginning of May, and the whole thing should be finished in August.
There are now 'only'
2 quilting projects to continue or finish,
4 tshirt tops,
2 shirt tops,
as many stall items as possible
2 camera challenges, and sweet peas to plant before we start the round again with the Conduit
