June is Here

What to do in June???

I did finish my big secret sewing project on time…just two or three days before deadline! It was a great challenge and a great finish.

However, that leaves me in June with a little less than strong intention and focus! Is that always a reaction to finishing a big project for you? Do you need a little down time to recuperate? Here I am trying to figure out what to do next. Yes, I do have at least one specific project in mind, but not quite ready to start it…no deadline.

So, here is my reasonably blank sheet for June goals…20180605_092217358716420.jpg

Looks like the plan is to finish up some WIPs!!!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

In order to try to decide what those…or even one…might be, I spread things out on my work table, chairs, and design wall.

Oh my!  I have so many and all the stars don’t even show! ( I can say here that if another wonky star swap comes up this month, I WILL join 🧡💛💙 I love them!)

Speaking of Stash Bee, I didn’t post about my blocks for May, but I did complete them.

20180523_092251775921263.jpg Julia requested blue and gold stars. I was excited, as I love stars (repeating myself here), but these felt just OK. She was sweet about them though and said she liked them. I always find that blocks added to a bigger group look better than alone!

The June Stash Bee project looks fun, as usual. I will get to that too!

Back to all those WIPs. DH (Dear Hubby) want me to finish the giant Sienna Sunburst, as a wall hanging. I am less than excited about that, as noted in the linked blog. BUT…it would be a fairly easy finish!

People like different parts of quilting. I get that! Some like to just make blocks, some like to make flimsies, some like to hand quilt, some just long-arm, I have not decided what part I like best, but I don’t like cutting! I would say that might be why I like improv so much!

One thing I have heard said…

Jenny Doan - a finished quilt So, I had better finish something!

Oh, and then there is this part of quilting…which takes LOTS of time…and is a favorite!

Life is short - buy fabric

I guess future posts will tell how it goes in my room this month. I don’t want to rush through beautiful June, but there are some things on the calendar for July that involve quilting and I am looking forward to them!

I am trying to be a better blogger, but you can follow me on InstaGram, @facetfully, for more frequent posts.

See you around…and be sure to be IN-joy!

Happy Quilting!

Oh, and one more PS…I don’t really like my new Bitmoji, but I cut my hair, so I changed it. They don’t offer a short hairstyle with bangs!!! 🤷‍♀️ I know, who cares!

  1. Awesome post and yes finished is better than perfect. I loved your photo of your projects and fabrics spread out on the table – I must be one of those weird quilting people as that looked very pleasing to me! I am surprised we are already at June, I was just getting done with February 🙂

  2. You bring up a topic that I certainly relate to. But summer is here and I don’t want to miss out on all this glorious weather and summer bounty either! I’m learning (slowly) that I really don’t have to do it all, as I have always thought I did. What an epiphany! Ha. Good luck with your projects…and stop and smell the roses too.
