At any rate, here was the progress at the end of May:
And now.......DONE!!! Another finish for June.
The knit shawl was also a June finish, though I suspect it will end up unraveled and redone. I love the yarn and the pattern was nice......except that it doesn't fit. Perhaps that is one of the reasons I struggle so with knitting. At any rate, I am disappointed but not yet defeated.
Do you remember the first string blocks that I donated? Well, the Heartstrings girls put them together and quilted them......then I took the quilt back to bind it, and it is done, too.
Looking at June's list, several things fell by the wayside. I still haven't completed the woven scarf. And I put aside the two rugs on the list to work on my camp rugs. The black work quilt blocks are still a block set, though I did pull fabric for them. And Primitive Garden saw no progress. Since I completed " My Family" and "Letters From My Beloved", I am adding "Summer Blooms", "Words to Live By" and "Summertime" to the BOM List. These are all actually Summer Block of the Week programs, and I am already behind due to rug camp, but will be hustling this week to try to catch up. I am taking the Jayne Hester rug and Lion and Lamb off the list and adding one of the camp rugs, "Love Grows in the Garden". I would like to finish the camp rugs while they are still fresh on my mind. I am also adding a VERY old (2006-2007) sampler block set that I would like to get into a top and sent for quilting. This will be my UFO project for the month.
Sounds like a pretty ambitious month. I know it sometimes looks as though I am setting myself up for failure with all of the things on my list, but I am really okay when they don't all get finished or plans change. The list just helps me to stay a little more focused.
Making myself "stick with it".
