So Much (or less...) to Tell...

... and I don't know where to start!
It's May Day Eve, Monday (I have to tell about BOM rehab) and the last day of April (I have to tell about AYOS and OPAMs / Jotain valmista joka kuukausi)
Huh, this post will be loooooooooooong! Hopefully you won't get bored...

Let's start with happy and lighter things...

WE (Fenix&I) wish you

HAUSKAA ja VÄRIKÄSTÄ VAPPUA kaikille!!!
FUN and COLOURFUL MAY DAY!!!

and then 
are you ready for more serious matters?
 
 In BOM Rehab I sewed one Designer Mystery 2011 block. It's block ten called 'Layered Daisy'
My personal favorite... indeed! The colours and... EVERYTHING!!

Here is all six blocks... I'm on the midway ;o)
But the other... BOM RC&D

only the second block is done!!!

What shall I show you then? Would you like to see something 'pretty'?

I feel pretty. Oh, so purr-pretty!
I feel dizzy, I feel sunny, I feel fizzy and funny and fine…
Are you kidding, Fenix?

 I don't know is my April's AYOS project 'Summer Day' 'pretty' enough for me, but the main thing was that at least we had fun, when we did it. Fenix is so keen on red/ orange fabrics... I don't know why... maybe because he's orange himself...

BUT now it's time to a darker story...
For the Jotain valmista joka kuukausi - challenge I promised to finish Butterfly Garden quilt. As you may have seen I FAILED - really BADLY!!! Since mid-April there has been no progress at all! WHY!!!
Laziness, Illness and  Indecision..... 
L.I.I.? Hhmmmm, sound good explanations for the fact that BG is still in progress.
Therefore, I do not put myself big goals for May.

This small 'Flower patch' quilt (Moda Bake Shop recipe 2009) is my goal for May. And I might alter the recipe a little...

So I really need stronger control to my quilting life...

... and who else is better than Fenix ;o)
Together we quilted and binded 'BibeloT' - wall hanging...

... it found a place in the bedroom wall. Fenix can now count the butterflies, when I'm sleeping ;o)

Finally, as Ron Sexsmith sings...

It's really coming down
Raining cats and hounds
It's falling on parades
And on the plans we made

But there'll be other days
And things will turn our way
The rain has got to fall
It's April after all

Hi Satu,
maybe you should not set your stakes so high, and then you will not be dissapointed you didn´t reach your goals. I think your progress is perfect, and the main thing is that you are having fun when you create! The wallhanging is very beautiful!

That looks like a great spot for your Bibelot quilt. Congratulations on getting it quilted! That's far ahead of me. As for the other project, don't worry about it. Life is full of detours and is all the more interesting for them.

You set high goals to yourself, Fenix is keeping an eye on you not to see if you get your goals. But if you don't get to much stress. I really like the projects you are working on. And you finished a beautifull quilt.
