April finished!

I bet you didn't see this one coming any time soon. I, for one, have not been holding my breath waiting for this last block to get finished. But, today, during one of little A's naps, I decided to see if I could get the block prepped - and, after that was completed, see how much of it I'd be able to do before she woke up.

Well, I didn't get much done before she was up and ready for action again - but she did play on her mat for a little while so that I could finish the appliqué. The star is completed - and thus all the blocks from April can now be crossed off the list!

Not too bad, it only took about four months to get it done.. :-p


I'll see if I can get some new background fabrics selected and cut for May and June tomorrow (or this weekend, what ever comes first with some me-time). I'm not sure when I'll be able to start July (or August, for that matter) seeing as we haven't found a desk yet. Actually, we're missing quite a bit of stuff, and since moving, still have a bunch of boxes here and there. But, we're getting there. The house is liveable and we're getting to know the neighbourhood and the city. So far, not really missing Oslo - but I guess we'll get to that point too, sooner or later.

But tonight I'll be celebrating this one little victory!

May I have an "A, please?
