On to May.
I have a lot of goals for May, my main two being the upstairs of my house and the next insurance exam. The story of my life. But of course I have sewing goals.
I have 4 that will be done done this month. Considering I am aiming for completing 12 UFO’s this year and I already have 4 done, this will double my total quickly. It should also put me at about 46 yards for the 100 dash from stash, which is right about where I should be. I wanted 2 more UFO finishes by the 4th of July and now I will have at least 4.

Thimbles BOM – finish top to flimsy stage; the back will be a Sister’s Choice flimsy.
Sister’s Choice – will use the Thimbles BOM to figure out how many Sister’s choice blocks I need. For May, make all 9 patches, which I think is 49, last time I checked my math.
Orca Bay – the last seam is giving me fits. Don’t even ask. I would like this to the binding stage.
Bricks & Stepping Stones – finish the blocks. This is harder than it seems.
Beau’s – make the center, which is the huge 25-patch, the coping border, the inner box (with the column units), the next coping border and the first round of Mellie’s quilt blocks around the outside. Also make more 9 patches and HST’s as needed.
Homework – I am woefully behind in homework, so I will try to ease back into it. Since I have so many 9 patches to make, those will be my leader-enders for a while.
LCRR blocks – done and mailed in May.
Just Takes 2 (JT2) – There are 4 Tuesdays in May which normally would mean 8 blocks, so let’s aim for 12. We get as far as we go.
BOMs – I have 5 that I do. 3 are caught up. 1 is one month behind and the other is not so hot. The goal for May is the get the first 4 caught up and maintained and do one third of the work on the one I am behind.
I am away from home 8 weeknights this upcoming month, plus one night is our anniversary, so we hope to do something fun. I should be able to block and tackle this list pretty well if I am diligent.
