Naturally chocolate featured in the plan for this past weekend. Mr. P and I spent Thursday night and Friday with Miss P and Little P ...an Easter egg hunt yielded a bounty of goodness and one very excited little boy.
We had breakfast with Mr. P's family on Friday and in the presence of very good company I finished Superheroes 1. Finally.
Excuse the cruddy photo. Its so overcast here today and I couldn't take this outside because the rubbish men are lurking round emptying bins and I'm still in my pyjamas. Without a bra. Very unattractive.
And then Friday afternoon we headed up to the river and spent some time with my parents for the rest of the long weekend. There was some retail therapy and plenty of sewing.
I made three needle books
Briar Rose got finished on Saturday and I'm doing the happy dance because I really like it a lot.
and on Sunday I indulged in some more retail therapy. It seems I'm on a roll with buying variegated threads but these were a bargain I couldn't resist at 20% off.
I started the baby quilt (the one I was supposed to have finished in March- nothing like leaving it till the last day of the month to make a start !). All the fabrics are cut for the front and back and the top is almost done.
Speaking of March goals, I may have finished two quilts in March (again - go me- I was starting to think I may not finish ANY quilts in 2013) but I kinda bombed on my actual goals for March. Hopeless! The chair is still mocking me, and I didn't get the top for Superheroes 2 finished although I did get the back done and surely that counts for something. I finished only 2/10 recycled shirt quilt blocks and the baby quilt didn't get finished either. Frankly making lists sucks, or I suck at finishing the things on my lists !
April Goals (I don't know why I bother ...seriously!)
1)Finish the baby quilt , top, back, quilting and binding.
2)Final 8 blocks of the recycled shirt quilt
3)Put the top together for the recycled shirt quilt
4)Finish superheroes 2 (top, quilting and binding )
I'm all about ignoring the chair for another month. It's not going to happen in April so I'm not going to pretend it is. Re-upholstering that chair terrifies me.
I hope everyone had a peaceful and happy Easter and isn't suffering from chocolate overload.
