The May Day bank holiday weekend over here in the UK was for once not a damp squib - the sun shone and temperatures rose to 'take your coat off' levels - very pleasant. Time enough for a walk in the countryside, some gardening and a bit of stitching too
I slipped in under the wire with my April BQL Bag Challenge bag - just! At 9.30pm on the Saturday evening I made the extended deadline with a couple of hours to spare - phew!
The May bag isn't as large but involves making 24 bow tie blocks so there's no way I dare leave this one until the very last minute - just have to decide on some fabrics and get started on that one then
I put the final stitches in the replacement Spring Fling Round Robin last night - that will be sent off to sunny Portugal either today or tomorrow.
I didn't have any of the original fabric I used for the leaves left so to avoid rummaging through my fabric boxes in the loft I used an I Spy square sent to me I think by Karol-Ann. The background was just the right green for the leaves - but boy was I cutting it a bit fine in between all those animals :o)
And finally five more little heart quilts completed - all except the lilac and sand one at the top right have homes - so they'll be heading off to the post office pretty sharpish too
Still got one more heart top completed on the sand background plus three on the black backgrounds now ready for sandwiching and two others with pre-determined destinations in the planning stages to start but I can feel an end to the heart phase starting to appear on the horizon
So apart from my May bag, I wonder what I should have a go at next?
