Maybe I'll get more done in May

I know every time I do these posts I wonder where the last month has gone, but this one has been the fastest of the year so far. I mean really where did those weeks go?

I haven't done so well on my to do list this month, but hey I'm not going to worry about it too much you can only do what you can do right? Here's the report ;-)
  • Work on the Tigers Cross Stitch - This has been worked on and it's oh so nearly there I just have some back stitching left to do so I'm going to hold off showing until it's done.
  • Participate in Rainbow Scrap Challenge - Didn't manage to do as much as I would have like but I used some purple in the Collette doll, I also made a pin cushion, an ATC and my chequerboard blocks so not bad
  • Participate in the 3cs colour palette challenge - I managed to get Collette done just in time for the deadline.
  • Finish 3 chapters of my city and guilds course. - Almost made this one happen. I've completed 2 chapters and just have the final stitches and the write up to do of the third.
  • Finish 6 more reused and recycles postcards - I made a start on only one postcard so this is a fail
  • Catch up on Birdies block of the month - Another fail, I think I'm going to have to scratch this one from the project list I just don't seem to have the time :( It's a shame but one of those things
  • Make a start on the second PIF gift. - Another fail I'm afraid this will roll over to this coming month
So all in all a bit of a mixed bag, but on a positive note. I've managed to get my first ever crochet blocks made thanks to some brilliant tuition from Sue - I'll blog about that another day. And I managed to get this little patriotic stitchery done while watching the wedding on Friday.This is what I hope to get done in May
  • Finish the Tiger Cross stitch - any time left over in the month after that will be used to work on Lakeside Farm
  • Participate in the Rainbow Scrap Challenge
  • Participate in the 3CS Challenge
  • Make 10 Recycled/Reused Postcards
  • Complete chapter 4 city and guilds and get 2 further chapters done.
  • Start second PIF gift
  • Crochet 16 little Granny Squares
Only time will tell if I can get through the list this month :)

You seem to have achieved quite a bit last month. I don't do lists now that I'm retired, though I was a fiend for them when I was working. I don't seem to achieve much, but at least I don't feel guilty about what I haven't achieved. Serenity at all costs these days!

Wow, you got loads done. I daren't even look at my new year's goals as I know I've done next to nothing from them and my priorities have changed. I love the cross stitch heart!

I love your Union Jack heart. Do you have anything in mind for it - a pincushion, perhaps?
