Although it seems like we just reported in last week, it’s already time once again to report in your block making totals! What?! April is over already? Yes. Yes, it is, and we’re still running our furnace. Uff!
I’ve been mostly at the longarm for the past month, up until I started traveling on the 23rd. So my block makes were kind of hit and miss and all over the place.
I made another block for the third version of my Summertime Sampler that I’m working on, but forgot to take a photo of it.
I did Step Two of the Off the Cuff BOM (which has been way easier and more fun that I even imagined — Step 3 comes out tomorrow, and I’m excited!):
I made 4 blocks for our monthly guild challenge:
I finished Block 2 of Hospital Sketches (and now I’m running a little behind, but hope to catch up soon):
I also had not counted my Vintage Christmas Ornament Blocks up to this point, but so far I’ve made 10.
That gives me an April total of 21. One block shy of the monthly goal, but I think I was a couple blocks ahead, so it’ll all come out in the wash!
How did you do?
It’s time for you to report in and let us all know what you’ve been busy with over the last month.
I have the Project Page updated, and our new goal for May is 31 blocks, for a year-to-date total of 118.
The March prize winner is Diane J., who has a total of 25 blocks so far. Woohoo!
To answer a few questions I’ve had:
You do not have to meet the monthly goal to be eligible for the monthly prizes. You just have to be faithful about reporting in! And if you missed a month (or even more) of reporting in, you can go back and report all of them at once, if you want to catch up. And if the blog won’t let you leave a comment to report in, you can use the Contact form; and if that doesn’t work, you can always email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org — that was a lot of “ands” — I hope this helps.
I hope you all have a productive month of May. There’s usually a lot going on in May. I’m hoping that all the little bits and pieces of units I’ve been stitching can finally turn into blocks!
