May has been a busy month, but boy do I feel like I accomplished a lot. I finished my May goal for A Lovely Year of Finishes. I was able to quickly finish Mathew's Thomas the Train Sew Together bag. It was super easy and he loves it for all his little trains. I love how easy it is to put them all away and quickly take them with us, especially camping.
The zippers are great for his developmental aspect.
It was so easy that I quickly made Mikaela one as well.
The weekend before and Memorial day weekend were spent camping - with electricity!! I love Mikaela's sewing machine for sewing in the camper. I can quickly set up and sew. I've pieced a lot of HST's for a Jewel box quilt and sewn strip sets for a quilt for my MIL.
Mikaela and I also made taggy blankets for her daycare providers new twin grandsons. We made a couple extra too. Two fat quarters of minkee make 2 taggy blankets.
Mikaela picked out this unicorn fabric, so I made her a basket to put her baby in.
I pulled out the embroidery machine to make a label for the NACAA quilt I made. It should be back from the quilter in a few weeks and I can bind and add it before the end of the month.
I used the leftover blocks from that quilt to make a small one as well.
My biggest accomplishment is an SDSU Pride of the Dakotas Marching band quilt made from my t-shirts from my band days. I've been planning to make this for 13 years, since I graduated, but it just hadn't happened. It just took a little look at SDSU in a different light to inspire me to finish it. So excited that I made it and quilted it in under 2 weeks and should be ready to bind it this week! Go Jacks!
My little jackrabbits are super supportive! Love how big they are growing up to be. Preschool is over for the summer and now they have many adventures to go on. This week is Teddy Bear week, so they are super excited.
