April Intentions & Winners

This was what we woke up to on April 3. It was our last day in the UP of Michigan. Not unusual, just unwelcomed, as our all-weather tires are meant for all the weather in South Carolina! By the time breakfast was finished and we headed south, the roads had been salted and the sun came out. 
Now this is more to my liking. April 7, at the beach in SC. Great fun watching, but I'm not into flying with the Pelicans like that!

April Intentions: 

1) Send out goody packages to the 8 commenters on my 3/22 giveaway post. 

2) Attend all 5 group meetings on my calendar. As of today, 1 down and 4 to go. 

3) Start the Spring cleanup of house AND yard areas. This presently underway, but will take awhile. 

Make progress on the following: 

4) My OBW. Needs the cut addressed and then the quilting, binding, etc. 

5) Desert Sky Quilts, yes this will be two. The back is just too interesting to be against a wall. 

6) My pojagi piece. Need to decide the size it will become, and whether it will be curtain art, quilt, ? 

7) Batik Star needs to be quilted and finished. 

8) Mystery Quilt has several 'clues' that need to be done to be up to date. 

9) Hosta Trio. Appliqués need to be stitched down, thread painting, then quilting, etc. 

10) Dragonfly book pages may become wallies. 

11) Tequamenon Falls wallhanging. I need to decide if it will get borders, or finish it as is with a facing. 

12) Batik triangle improv challenge pieces are in a container. These need some sort of direction!

13) Flower garden from my hand dyed fabrics. Couching stems with the longarm is a possibility. 

14) Collaged piece needs to have some color added to all that black!

15) Fused fabric improv art quilt. This may need to just cogatate until it learns to speak to me. 

My thought for today: Continued progress leads to completed projects. 

Let's create today, Luann

I am so happy that we don't have snow! It has been cold but no snow so far this spring which is unusual for us. I am working on a wedding quilt with a deadline for the end of April so you inspired me with your progress and your plans.

I know you've commented before, but for some reason I'm just not sure of how I know you,, are you from Cobblestone Guild? Goose Creek?
If you are, how's your Hawaiian appliqué coming along?
Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. Have a wonderful week.

Thank goodness we don't have any snow here(UK) but it's still raining and unseasonably cold!
I'm longing for blue skies and some warmth

That snow looked very thick and cold. Snow is very rare around here, even though I live in one of the coldest parts of Australia, but we get a light sprinkling once every 4 or 5 years.
Once again, you have a lot of plans for April. I hope you make good progress on them.
