***** Work on the new project that I started….A postage stamp quilt made with 2.5 inch squares.  It is my new leader and ender project.  Almost finished two blocks.  This is going together quickly as a leader and ender.

****** Make a dress for DGD’s doll.  Not Done.  Nyah-Nyah 

Some things aren’t done.  But I did some other things so I don’t mind… Like flags for the To Boston with Love project.

And here is my list for June:

1. Six inch quilt block swap – 2 per month – to be mailed by the 15th.  Dawnelle wants any block in southwest shades.

2. Bee Balm block swap – The instructions are apparently on their way in the mail.

3. Block swap adventure – 1 - 12.5 in block – mail by the 25th.  Cyndi wants a star block in brights, funky or modern on white.

4. Inchy hexagon swap – 2 hexies per month – mail by April 30th.  Karyli wants yellow petals and black centres.

5. MMM Round Robin – mail by April 30th.  This is the last month for this round robin.  I haven’t received the block to work on yet.

6. Simply Solids block swap – Mail by April 26th – Anne Marie wants a complex Katherine Wheel.  I’m going to have to concentrate to make this one. 

7. Get your Hex On bee – mail by April 30th.  Elita wants a simple 1.5 inch hexie flower and has sent gorgeous fabric for it.  I’m half done already.

8. Charm Pack Table Runner for Terry. I am embarrassed that this isn’t done and it is TOP of the priority list.

9. A birthday star block for Quilt Diva Julie.

10. A mug rug for my secret partner in the Flickr Mug Rug Revival swap.

As well I am going to:  

***** Finish Easy Street!  Or try to any way.  I have 16 square blocks to make and 10 triangle blocks.  And borders and quilting.  Yikes!  Oh well, I will try.. 

**** Finish the table mat I started for the Stitch Me Up blog hop.  It is a gift.  I need to get it mailed.  This one also has high priority!

*** Work on the X and + quilt .  I’m going to try for ten more blocks again this month.  

** Continue making leader/ender postage stamp blocks.

* Make the prototype dress for DGD’s doll.  I need to decide if this dress is the right one for my GDs for the wedding in September…. DD#2’s wedding…

Spring is here and summer is crowding spring out the door.  Life is hectic busy, but a girls gotta sew…. Smile
