April in review

So April is over already, it has gone by very quickly once again... We had lovely spring weather which has pushed me to go outside more (not something I do easily) and we have started to really try to reserve some quality family time at week-ends when we do something all together like going for a bike ride or a long walk. Of course, that has eaten even more into "free" time but it is so worth it as the kids absolutely love it and we get to spend some stress free time together when we don't have to rush anyway. We also started the month on holidays and then I spent a few days in Paris for work. A busy month where I didn't get to spend as much time with my sewing machine as I should/would have liked to. Anyway let's have a look at THE list....

Hoping for Finishes!
1. UK mini swap this will be my choice for A lovely Year of Finishes - all done and sent on time!

2. Quilt for M - no progress


3. Star Plus - no progress

4. Skirt Sew Along - no progress


5. IG Secret Pal swap - 2 mini baskets


Bee Blocks 
1. Little Blog Bee block (February) - finally done and the bee is now over

2. Block Lotto blocks - I didn't play this month so I won't win ;-)

3. I love Lucy international block (May) (I am Queen Bee in April) - this one is in progress

4. Flower hexies for the Inchy Hexie Swap (March and April) - March are gone, April one done, one in progress


5. Bee Europa (April) - selvages block all done


6. Book Bee (April) + 2 books for Helen - I am late....
7. Flying geese Bee (February, March and April) - I am late....
8. Bee Hive Europe (April) - started


WIP
1. Midnight in the Oasis - no progress and I will drop this one from my list for now as I am unlikely to pick it up anytime soon

2. Mod Mod Along blocks: Sunrise Blocks x 6, Little Window blocks x 11 and Sweet Dreams blocks - no progress and I will drop this one from my list for now as I am unlikely to pick it up anytime soon

3. You've got Mail wall hanging - need 4 more envelopes - no progress but I am hoping to pick this one up again soon

4. Finish Maud's bag - I have started by unpicking the lining to use something more funky than plain old muslin. Macarons are much more fun! And I finished it just before midnight, so proud!

5. Finish my work bag - my Lazy Bums challenge for November  no progress but who knows that could be the next bag I finish... don't know when though

6. Mr Snowmen cushion - all the blocks are pieced and now sewn together!

7. Make more Farmer's Wife blocks - no progress and I will drop this one from my list for now as I am unlikely to pick it up anytime soon

8. Flowering Snowball quilt-along- no progress and I will drop this one from my list for now as I am unlikely to pick it up anytime soon

9. Quilt for my Grand-Mum's 90th birthday - no progress and I will drop this one from my list for now as I am unlikely to pick it up anytime soon

10. Continue working on my Once Upon a Time Sampler - I have made fantastic progress on this one, finishing 2 more months (September and October) thanks to #The100DaysChallenge that started on 6 April. My challenge is one thread a day on my sampler.
