Weekend Stitching: May One Monthly Goal Finished

It's a beautiful weekend for honoring all those who've served our country.  My father in law was injured in World War II.  He really was a man of peace, but served because it was the right thing to do.  He really was an incredible person.   Our thoughts and prayers are with those who've served and the families who've supported them.  

Our  holiday weekend started off with Drama Teen's graduation. 



We are so proud of her.  She's been accepted into the Honors College at Oklahoma State University.  So come fall she'll be on to the next set of adventures and challenges.  

We had a fun visit with the family that came for graduation this weekend.  But that meant there wasn't much weekend stitching going on till last night.  The final borders were added to the Meadow Mist Mystery quilt on Friday.

I'm really happy with how this one turned out.  Getting the borders on was part of May's One Monthly Goal. The rest of the goal was to get the back made and get the project ready for Trudy to quilt.  That happened last night.



All that's left is to seal up the box and write out an address label.  So May's OMG is done.  I'm 5 for 5 on my OMG goals for 2017.  I've really enjoyed this challenge.  Picking one priority for the month has really helped me get to the finished line with a few projects this year.   

Enjoy the rest of this holiday weekend.

  12. Yea for another quilt ready to be quilted. And, 5 for 5 is fantastic. I am too but I general pick projects that motivate me and are doable. Now, what's up for June. Congratulations to Drama Teen on graduation and moving on to college. Will that make you an empty nester? (Or, perhaps more time for quilting?)
