May's One Monthly Goal

WOW, is it really May already.  Time is at warp speed, at least for me it is.  How about you?  I haven't taken much time to think about a goal for May, but need to come up with something as we leave Friday for the Oregon coast and will be gone until November.  Have I packed up everything that needs to be moved from the "big" 5th wheel to the "little" 5th wheel that will be our home for the next 6 months?  NOPE is the answer to that question and I'm running out of time.

Oh, back to May's One Monthly Goal which is hosted by Patty at Elm Street Quilts.  You can find out about it and link up HERE

Since I'll be working over the next six months as a campground manager, I'm going to make my goal an easy one.  I'll mostly be working on my redwork blocks that will eventually become a Christmas guilt/wall hanging.  Here are  pictures of a few that I've already completed.








And this is what all the blocks will become.


Happy Stitching

    1. Thanks Sharon. I like doing redwork when we are traveling as I don't have to set up my sewing machine and all that goes along with it. I'll get those all up and ready to sew when we get to Oregon.

    1. Many thanks. I'll be glad to finish the project up as it has been in the works for too long. Of course I left it all at home last summer so didn't work on it much before we left.

  8. You have quite a few done already! That's going to be a great quilt. I am so envious of your next six months. =) I really miss living on the go.

  9. I think this is a great monthly goal and stress-free for you. I still haven't closed in on what I want my goal to be. I skipped April's OMG as we were moving and setting up and starting our Asst. Manager jobs. Now I'm ready to go again; just have to look through my projects (old WIPS) to see what I want to finish this month.
