April Activity

A new month already! Time really does fly. So that must mean it's time to do a quick round up of what I accomplished in April!

So I knew I did alot of paper piecing... but it wasn't until I put this mosaic together that I realised how much. Fiona might be on the right track threatening intervention... Haha! There are a couple of BIG projects in there (top left and bottom right corners - large quilts to show that I do things other than paper piece).

Here are the links to the blog posts on these if you're interested in checking any of them out!

1. Mystery Quilt
2 &3. Paper pieced blocks
4. Mini quilt
5. Needle book (I always want to type that as Needblook. My brain is weird sometimes).
6. Paper pieced start to a sewing machine cover
7 & 8. Tiny geese
9. Pieced back for the XOXO quilt
10-15 Paper pieced blocks for the XOXO quilt
16. The mammoth XOXO quilt - still in the process of being quilted!

And because I don't have enough going on currently, I just got this fab new book!

Have to say - there are some great projects in there, and such gorgeous photos! Here are a couple that have quickly been added to my To Do list (oh and yes, you do spy a paper pieced project in there - surprise!).

Yep. Because I need more things to add to my To Do List. Well now it's time to get stuck into some projects so I have something to show for May!
