My kitchen is full of sweet cupcake aroma - and cupcakes don't last long in these parts, but fortunately these are not for us (or they would already be settling into their new home on my hips), but for the cakewalk at the Spring Fair. We are all hoping for a break in the rain for the kid's big day on Saturday!
I am so happy PicMonkey has their collage feature up and running - here is what I managed to get done this month.
The Kindergarten quilt (top left) was presented to the teacher today - it was much appreciated, and the kids were so excited to see their finished blocks. One boy asked if all the kids could have a chance to take it home and sleep with it - so cute! Top right is the lady's new Ice Cream Dress, that she still refuses to wear. I love the little shark that I made for my son's Pirate quilt, but I'm sad that I haven't made any significant progress on the quilt, and so is he! I managed to quickly crank out two skirts when the weather warmed up briefly. And last but not least, I finished three sackboys for the school fair - that photo is recycled from last month since I haven't had time to take new pics.
In June I am looking forward to making some headway on the Pirate quilt, and hopefully making a quilt for us - I have a jelly roll of Kate Spain's Terrain that I really want to stitch up! I also want to make a couple of small bags -- maybe something that I can enter in Purse Palooza. I have a bunch of knit fabric cut out just waiting to be sewn up into t-shirts for the kids (please tell me I'm not the only one who has half started projects all over the house!). And of course, I am working on a project for my day on the Let's Get Acquainted blog hop on June 12th.
I am linking up with Lily's Quilts Fresh Sewing Day and Small Blog Meet. Awesome blogs to be discovered in both these groups!
Thanks for visiting!

I have a Terrain layer cake awaiting some attention too! I love the skirts and the teacher's quilt is lovely. I made a quilt for my eldest's teacher last year using handprints from each of the kids and they all loved that they could contribute.ReplyDelete
