A Lovely Year of Finishes: April Goals

April is a very busy month for me, so much so that I almost didn't want to set any goals, but I thought that would be wrong.  So I have decided to set a few goal, not big ones, but hopefully attainable ones.

1. My main goal is to finish pouches for Sharla and I.  I am doing Wide Open Pouches by Noodlehead. I started last week, and after making one, Sharla had the bright idea that I should make them for everyone for Easter.  So the I had to hurry and do 7 pouches for family last week.  I did get a couple of ours done as well.  Here are the ones I gave away today.  I need to do one this size for me, and then a medium and two larges for Sharla. We want them for our trip for Callie's wedding, so I have about 1 1/2 weeks to get them done.

2. My second goal is to get my bee block done and sent on time.  I only have two this month, but with everything else on my plate, I don't want them to slide.  I'm very excited because one is a Card Trick block, something I've always wanted to do and the other is the Autumn Chain block.  I would like to have these done before Callie's wedding, but I'm not sure that is going to happen.

3. Sharla's sewing machine cover quilted and completed.  She pieced the cover about 3 weeks ago and I've still not gotten it on to the machine.  I know this won't be done until after the wedding, but I am hoping to complete it the following week.

4. Cross Blocks.  I want to do at least 10 more blocks.  I would really like to get 20 done, but I don't want to push myself too much.  I have enough cut that I can easily do this, if I sit down and sew for a couple of nights.

Now that is the end of my sewing/quilting list.  I still have lots of other things, like taxes, doctors appointments and other fun and exciting events.  I'm a list maker by nature and I'm running about three simultaneously right now. Which I hope means I don't forget anything important. Today I am linking up with  Melissa of Sew BitterSweet Designs and Shanna of Fiber of All Sorts.


  1. Cute, cute bag! And a great idea to do them for Easter gifts. :) I have a busy couple of months coming up too, so I feel for ya.

  2. Love all those cute bags, and they are such a cute idea for Easter gifts! I think it helps to set goals, it seems to help me with productivity. I hope you accomplish all on your list!

  3. I surprised myself and resisted the urge to make Easter receptacles for my family. After seeing all of the hour baskets and pouches on Instagram, I SO wanted to be crazy and try to crank some out, but I'm glad I didn't :) Yours are gorgeous, though! Good luck with your goals :)

  4. Great idea for Easter Gifts. Good luck with your goal.


I love hearing from you!!! Thank you for taking the time to leave me a comment!!!!!
