New Month, New Goals

Things really did not go to plan this month. It's amazing how a few germs can throw a wrench in the best laid plans. Do not expect much.

Finish Emerald Mermaid--The latest on this project is that we are taking my mother on a trip for her birthday over Mother's Day weekend (next month for my British readers). That's going to be her present--and it's already costing me an arm and a leg--so she's getting the mermaid for Christmas. But I do want to have it framed during the May framing sale at my LNS. 
Smalls SAL--Finished just under the wire.
Cards: "Kid" cards, need three.--I made man cards, I made lovely cards for women (pictured) and I made kid's cards as needed. I'm calling this good.
And last but certainly not least Craft for Craft Month! And we know what happened with this. But be excited! Mancrafts, every Monday!

Wow, lots of goals! I look forward to it. The trip for your mom sounds great. And the mermaid will be spectacular for Christmas. I'll cheer you on to a finish.

Go Nikki! So glad that you are feeling better!

Thoeria said...

Hope the germs have left you be and that you're feeling all better! May I just say that one has to be more than just "slightly" off the beaten track to attempt all that you've got on that list! Looking forward to seeing it all.....and Manly Mondays! :)
