The slip I pulled from my Scrap Attack bag for May's goal says to make something from the strings basket. The basket was pretty full at the beginning of the year, but in January I made a small dent in it by making seventeen blocks for Kat and Cat's Covered in Love block drive.
In April I had to spend a few days alone in a hotel room so I took my strings basket along and set up a personal sewing space there. It was like a mini private retreat!
I was only able to sew in the evenings after I got back to my room. The first night I got all this done .....
..... and the next night a bunch more. Imagine what I might get done in May in my "real" sewing room!
My 6 & 6 in 2018 goal for May is to make a throw sized quilt from batiks. I'm using a pattern called "Hypnotic" from Brenda Henning's "Strip Therapy 2." These two blocks will make an interesting secondary pattern when the rows are put together.
Here's hoping that life will settle down a bit, I'll stay on track with my goals, and May will be productive. Especially since June is already shaping up to be a real mess!
