I've just looked again at the photographs in the last post. They really are dreadful. I shall have to take more effort I think, and not settle for the first one that I take.
Well, how did I do with May's targets? I've finished the sun dress and nearly finished the shirt waist dress - just the hem to do. I'm not completely bowled over by either of them, but it's the first dressmaking I've done for about 20 years, so not too bad. I'm up to date on the BOM blocks, I've finished the Mr Men Sampler for Atticus and the quillow for E. I finally finished the black and white quilt and made the little cat tails wall hanging. Not too bad I guess.
I've finished all the blocks for the Orange Crush Mystery, but don't know what to do with them now. I laid them all out as per Bonnie's instructions and really didn't like it. Nor did DH. It is just too bright and busy for us. Perhaps in a larger house where you can get away from it, but in our Victorian semi it just looks wrong. I'm afraid I just can't face finishing something that I'm not going to love. Is this going to become my first UFO? Well, I'm still thinking and planning and hoping to salvage something, because I love the materials, and I love the blocks in very small numbers and not on top of each other. Perhaps I'll be able to do something with some sashing?
I haven't started either the shirting or the doctor's quilts yet, so they move forward into June. All in all though, not a bad month.
