I spent all of March and April here in Tampa except for a week we spent in Big Canoe and I had a list of goals I wanted to achieve in that time. We also started a major renovation of our upstairs bathrooms which is ongoing but in spite of that, I managed to accomplish all but one thing on my list plus a lot more. 

I did not complete the hand quilting on the pink and purple quilt. The chair that I quilt in is in our bedroom and since the bathroom renovation started in the master bathroom, I haven’t been able to get in there and stitch during the day – at night, I worked on binding and knitting. 

11 tops were quilted 

  • 5 were quilted on the longarm at Big Canoe
  • 5 were child size tops quilted here in FL
  • 1 was a doll quilt finished here in FL

9 quilts were bound – two of the tops quilted were Mom’s and I trimmed them and mailed them back to her for binding. 

5 tops were pin basted for quilting and I might get one last one done today. 

10 tops were pieced

  • 5 tops are sofa sized and will go to Big Canoe for quilting on the longarm
  • 4 are child sized and will be quilted here in FL
  • 1 is doll sized

4 quilts were cut for Mom


  • One scarf was finished
  • A scarf and hat were knit for my sister
  • Feather and Fan blanket started and halfway done. 

And I walked over 350 miles!

    WOW! That’s more than most of us accomplish in a year. I’m looking forward to seeing your Mom’s quilts. Have a safe trip!

    amazing–you were certainly productive during your stay! And what a walking achievement–congrats on that one! You must be in great shape….
    it’s hard when your crafts have you sitting a lot of the time like knitting and quilting–(I have never been able to walk and knit– altho a friend of mine uses her fanny pack and knits socks WHILE she does her daily walks!! Amazing!!) Hugs, julierose

    Wow! A big high 5 for all of those accomplishments. A combination of endless rain and a husband out of town for work has made for a very productive April for me too – except for the walking part.

    Wow, you got a lot done. Good job on walking too. I’ve walked the Bayshore Blvd. sidewalk. It’s suppose to be the longest continuous sidewalk in the world, & boy did it feel like when we were done going back and forth. It wouldn’t have been bad but we went for that Pirate thing they celebrate. We were dragging 7 tired kids trying to get through a zillion people.

    WOW! way to go Molly! Nobody can give you a hard time about you progress in April! And with constructions workers in the house too!

    I am always inspired by your lists and started tracking my goals and finishes in January. I sometimes think I’m not productive but when it’s all written down it is fun to see what has been worked on. I work full time and am in that season of busy jr/high school kids so my lists aren’t quite that long yet but looking forward to a long and productive summer!
