ALYOF, completed June!

I set as my goal for June to quilt a quilt I had made while pattern testing for Jess over at Elven Garden.

She's all kind of fab.  This one was for me.  I had it basted A LONG time ago, but I put it to the bottom of my list since I had other deadlines on tap at the time.

I quilted this one with a bright pink Aurifil thread and the lovely dove grey one.  It's not perfect, but I get to keep it.  (I think....hubs wants me to clear out/donate a bunch of quilts that are taking up space.)'s quilted and bound.

Linking up!  Not sure what my goal will be for July.  I'm still plugging away on my FAL list.  (Updating that progress by Sunday.)

ALYOF May goal

I really just want to finish something.  I'm picking my Catvent mini in cotton and steel.  I'm thinking that next year, the space behind my desk is getting cleared and minis will decorate my half.

FAL finishes so far....

I've been plugging away.

First there was my spring break Staycation (which honestly involved a lot of napping and faffing around).

Then there was Stash Bash.  I actually didn't finish much there due to bad planning on my part.

That said, here are my finishes so far:

ALYOF April finish

I had as my goal finishing my Heal circle knee high quilt.

It's done!  I had to quilt and bind it.  Now it is washed and ready to send off.  It's  a really fun quilt.  I think I need to make it on my own at some point.
