Above is my collage of my finished works for April. I am pretty pleased with what was accomplished. I got a little distracted with Pillows and projects from Patchwork Please but I had had so much fun which is what it is all about.  Great news this week, I also got an order for 5 chair bags….so I am off to work on those 🙂

Here were my goals and where they landed up. My extra projects pictured above were the bag (used for a guild swap), pencil-case and the two cushions that have been my focus this week.

  1. Focus on stock for my Etsy Store.
    • Chair Bags (x2 sets)
      1 set is completed – posted on Etsy and blogged here
    • Oven Mitts (x1 set)
      I finished one for a friend posted here 
    • Coffee Cup Sleeves (x2)
      Completed 3!! and posted in my store….A few kind folks also posted them on pinterest. Blogged here and here
    • Pouches/ Cases (x2)
      I did complete two pouches, just not the two I had planned. Both landed up being gifts. The pencil-case one from Patchwork Please was a lot of fun to make and featured above.
    • Set of place mats (x1 Stretch goal)
      Not surprisingly did not start
  2. Make a Pin cushion (from Patchwork Please) and a travel sewing pouch
    Pin cushion complete and blogged here, also posted on the Zakka Along 2.0 Flickr site
  3. Make a travel baby quilt for charity  (~30x20in.)
    Not started
  4. Madrona Road Challenge – Mini Quilt
    I have managed to get 2 1/2 blocks done. I will have to get a move on or rethink my approach since this Challenge ends May 12th. 

My General goals continue:

  1. Try to eat and exercise to plan
    I think as far as food goes – this month was much more on plan 
  2. Blog regularly using my new schedule
    On target

    This is a lot of finishes! Congrats on your 5 chair bag Etsy order–it must be satisfying to defray some of the fabric budget by running an Etsy shop. I’m especially looking forward to your Madrona Road finish–I think that was such a fun challenge for the MQG to do.

      Thank you. I do need to make a lot of sales to make up for what I spend on fabric….it makes my hubby a little more understanding when I get an order 🙂 I am needing some major motivation for the Madrona road challenge…I have 7 more blocks to do in a couple of weeks but here’s hoping !!
