Stashbuster # Challenge

The numbers for the month of May are:

 #12 -- Black embroidered butterfly.
I think there are only a few of them, so it can be maybe a red and black baby quilt.
I am on the road, so I don't have a photo.

#53 is Fancy Fox.
I have no idea what status it is, so I'll have to figure it out when I get home.

Prairie Moon Organization Challenge

Work on a UFO

Well, I do have a pre-printed baby quilt that I could finish on the road.
I had hopes of getting another one done, but it didn't happen.

Prairie Moon Organization Challenge

Pick one thing you've been procrastinating on organizing and just do it

So, there are probably so many thing that this could be.
I've been working on getting places cleaned up and cleaned out.
Going on a trip will require having someone stay here, so it would be nice if they could get around.

I'm thinking I would like to pick the desk, again.
The desk will be the school work along with all the things that migrate there.

Design Wall

My window design wall of Quilty Fun 
Jo's Club that should have been finished in April, but won't be.
It probably won't be finished until June. 
My Fall Blocks going together like a Gypsy Rose of my own design.
This is crazy to try and do, but I love puzzles, soooo.......

I only have a few more days at home, so I imagine this is what my design wall will look like for awhile.

Quilty Fun

I decided I didn't want to come home to having to do 3 blocks for Quilty Fun.
So, I did them.
The cocoa cups, trees and Quarter square triangles.
It feels good to get them done.

Another Challenge

OK, even though Prairie Moon has not been doing this challenge this year, I still wanted to try.
I've not been real successful, but maybe I can catch up later in the year.
These are those silly zippered pouches.
I can't say I like making them, but they are all cut out and the zippers ready to use.
So, I'll stitch them up and give them to Mom's nursing home to sell at their bazaar.
This is my May Challenge, but I'll not be home much to get them done.
I still have two of the other of these challenges not yet finished.
If I can focus, I should be able to get these finished.
