Thank you all so much for your encouragement and words of wisdom. I am feeling a little better today, so here’s hoping that my mood stays improved. I am trying not to pressure myself, which I think may help. Since it is June 1st, I have to show you my June Woolly Tyme blanket. This has been done for a couple of weeks, but I thought I’d wait to show you. I love how colorful this one is. The bunnies’ tails and eyes are French knots. This is the last of the sheep blankets – can you believe it’s been a whole year?! Here they all are…

I’m so pleased to have completed this project and kept up with the blankets. There have only been a couple of months I was late completing them, and I think it was due to waiting on threads to arrive. I’ve had a lot of fun with these. Now, it’s probably time to get back to stitching on my Just Nan WhimZis, or my Shepherd’s Bush 2000 Years Ago ornaments. It feels really good to have this done.

And speaking on what I’ve done…it is probably time to revisit the goals I set for myself in May. It’s the first month in a long while that I set goals for myself.

  • Finish part 1 of Mermaid Treasure Box – close, only have the specialty stitches left
  • Finish part 1 on Mystery Sampler – DONE!
  • Complete June Woolly Tyme – DONE!
  • Finish Part 2 of Barnabee’s Quest – nope
  • Finish 1 row on Baby Garden – nope
  • HAED Wednesdays – nope, I only participated one Wednesday in May
  • Finish Michelle’s RR – DONE and mailed!
  • Complete 1 WhimZi – DONE (Spring Spell)

Not too bad. I did complete half of my goals. I think for this month, I will keep it simpler:

  • Stitch on Their Song
  • Stitch on Mystery Sampler
  • Finish Kimono quilt top
  • Stitch and grid Neighborhood RR and have ready for mailing
  • Start Tesori

I think that’s do-able. Oh, and speaking of RRs. You have to go take a look at the beautiful stitching Jenna did on my Just Nan RR. I am so pleased with it!!! I am looking forward to having this beautiful piece come home so that I can put the finishing touches on it. Thank you, Jenna!!

And I stitched a little more on Their Song last night. I just love this piece, it is such a fun stitch. I jumped around a little bit on it, but I enjoyed myself. Here’s to a happy weekend!

I am grateful for evenings to myself.

  1. Michelle, your lamb and his blankets are great. I love things like this that are easy to stitch, don’t require expensive framing and can be switched each month. I still like your idea of taking his picture in different places. I hope you’ll still consider this.

  2. I agree, I hope you’ll take your sheep + blanket on tour πŸ™‚

    The blankets look wonderful spread out like that – congratulations on completing them all!

  3. Wow! What an accomplishment to have your Wooly Tyme collection finished! I love how you’ve displayed them in the photo, and I’m sure you’ll enjoy displaying them all year long. Enjoy!

  4. Michelle, I get the weekly Hoffman dist updates and HE has come out with a cat similar to your lamb! I may have to start collecting them!

  5. Lovely new blanket for your sheep, Michelle. Congratulations on stitching them all!
    I read your two latest posts at the same time, and I’m glad you are feeling better. Migraines can give a serious dent to morale.

  6. Congrats on finishing all your blankets! I know how hard it can be to stay with a monthly project. I’m still trying to finish those Heart in Hand Monthly Mania’s from 2000! Great start on Their Song! πŸ™‚

  7. I just caught up on your blog – I’m so glad things are looking more up. Migraines can be so debilitating in so many ways – physically and psychologically.

    The blankets are great! They are so adorable. I’m hoping for a quiet evening to myself tonight. May or may not happen.

  8. You really did a fabulous job keeping up with all of those blankets. And now you have a wonderful display piece to change out every month. Just so cute! πŸ™‚

    And you are most welcome for the RR square. I was so flattered that you asked. πŸ™‚ I hope that it arrives home soon!

  9. I’m gobsmacked by all the sheep’s blankets. They are adorable. I like HE designs. These blankets are quite original!

    And you are going to knit, too? Love your kimono squares.

    You are one talented lady πŸ™‚

    Enjoy

  10. Oh WOW – your wooly thyme finishes are grand! I have ONE to do and haven’t do it yet, maybe this THIS Christmas. Ha! Your Blog is lovely by the way!
