Happy Monday morning, everyone!!! Welcome to Monday Musings! I hope you all had a great week and got a lot accomplished. This week has been busy but a good one. The weather here has been great, but I know many states have had severe storms. I hope you are all OK. It’s been crazy.

Here’s my story for the week of 4/22 – 4/28/24:

  • Continue working on IB paper piecing project. DONE!! All the blocks are made and ready to become a flimsy!! Sneak peek of a couple of blocks!

  • Post for April Showers blog hop on Tuesday. DONE!! See my post HERE.
  • Clean a bit in the studio. DONE!! A little bit was done – much more to straighten up!
  • Continue working on secret sewing project. NOPE! But now the paper piecing is out of the way, it will be ready in short order!!
  • Keeping it simple – whatever suits my fancy! Hopefully start on my catalog quilts for the summer IB catalog. NOPE! Hopefully I can begin this week??

What’s on the agenda for this week 4/29 – 5/5/24:

  • Get May IB project into a flimsy.
  • Work on secret sewing for Jennifer’s Blog hop.
  • Quilt the above flimsies!
  • Maybe?? start working on June IB project.
  • Clean a bit in the studio.

    I am loving your paper-pieced blocks for the May Blog Hop. I struggled to use the cream prints. Wishing you a speedy finish.
