Two Out of Three Ain't Bad

Well, according to Meatloaf anyway. I only managed to do 2 out of my 3 "Just Three" April projects last month but that is ok as I did do a few other things to make up for it:) 
1. The scrappy Swoon block was made into a pillow - complete with groovy orange stitching.
2. I didn't get any further with my Daisy Mae Swoon blocks although I have the fabric cut and the geese made - I only have 6 blocks to go but they seem to be taking forever to get done as I keep starting other projects......................

3. And I did make something for me - upon joining in the Zakka sew along, one of the first projects was a sewing kit so I used some scraps of Echo and linen to make this. And I really love it!
Now for Mays list:

1. Finish off my DSDQ mini quilt so the package can be posted next week. This is the block I have started with:
2. Finish writing a tutorial for a post on Sarah @ Fairyface designs blog next week as part of her {Sew} Get started tutorials series - need to get onto this ASAP!!!

3. Continue doing some of the Zakka sew along projects each week or so - these are such lovely things to make!
