May Fresh Sewing Day

Hi, Welcome to "In The Boon Docks! This is my recap of the month of May! this month I did a lot of little things. Next month, I really need to finish a tutorial. I never knew just how hard one could be to write. I also need to finish "The Lorax" for my little guy.

Back to May! I love swaps and the deadline for the
Fabric Basket Swap was June 5, so I got my partners gifts in the mail early. Making my first Zakka Style Pincushion for my partner and a cute birdie basket too! I made things I really loved myself. Then I mailed them off to a new home. It is always great when your partner tells you how much they liked their gifts. It is the best part of the swap to me. I always worry it might not be good enough. I guess I still need validation sometimes.

I really enjoyed making flags with the WVMQG to send To Boston With Love that are now hanging in the Museum of Fine Arts Boston

Bee blocks for Scrappy? Sew bee it!. Another June goal catch up on bee blocks!

Stitch on Prints is one of my latest passions. This pocket is one of two I am working on for my Tammy Bag for Madam Samm of Sew We Quilt a blog hop which will run from Jun 12 - 18, 2013. My day will be Jun 13th. If you haven't signed up for the May Stitch on Prints Giveaway please do so HERE

Thank you for stopping by "In The Boon Docks" and I hope you come back real soon!
Until next time, create and be unique, Lisa
