Fixed Stars for April

Few glimpses of past March...
There were several birthdays,
for example I celebrated;)
I got that gorgeous cross-stitched owl picture from my mother. She stitched it herself.
Oh, I adore it!!!!
I also adore that cute mug rug above, which is present from Simone!
Thank you once more time, Simone;)
There is also two OPAMs at the collage:
pair of woollen socks (above left) and a make-up purse (above right)

Well, maybe it's time to scan March through the Fixed Stars...
I'm not proud of my achievements...
1. Finish Midnight Star - doll quilt. No progress:(
2. Finish Jul Mysteriet 2011 -tablerunner. No progress:(
3. Start and finish a shopping bag with pink roses. Only rose cross-stitched:(
4. Stitch-a-long 3 blocks for 'Tis the Season'. Done!
5. Applique block 2 for 'The Night before Christmas'. No remarkable progress:(
6. Spare time for Shooting Stars. Done! Finished a make-up purse and pair of woollen socks!
7. Sew 4 SBS blocks and other blocks. Only 3 SBS and 1880's Sampler blocks:(

March was catastrophic! So I'm wondering, what shall I do with Fixed Stars for April?
Can I make any plans, because I'm rarely able to keep them? What's wrong with me?

Okei, I'll be brave and do a short and light list.

1. Catch up the SBS (one behind) and 1880's Sampler (two behind) blocks. Catching started already this morning;) with one SBS New York Beauty and one 1880's block Pine Tree block
2. Continue SAL project Tis the Season with two blocks.
3. Finish the rosy bag.
4. Sew five Civil War Diary blocks. Two of them sewed, the next dates are 13, 15 and 21.
5. Spare time for Shooting Stars (I already know, there will be many of them), for example home-works and one or 2 Eastern projects.

Is this list light enough?

OK, I'm ready for April, the real Spring month...
... but where is the Spring; sun and yellow flowers???

I'm looking out of the window and searching for some spring feeling...
I don't find it:(
Somehow I remember these words of song:

"April is in my mistress' face,
but in her heart is cold December."

I'm glad you shared some tales with me...
Have a warm and hopefully sunny week!

Good luck with your April stars. Even though you didnt do that well in March, I still think you are a very creative woman, and I always like to see what you have accomplished.

Wow, it still looks very wintery! I hope the sun comes out for you soon. Good luck with your goals for April. My goal is to get back to many of the projects I have neglected in March.

Congratulations on your Birthday. You have a long list for April. But you did very well with March.

Your projects always look beautiful, Satu! Maybe you should set less goals for a month, then you might even do more than you initially wanted to ;o)
What a lovely stitchery your mother made for you. Such fine colors!
