Design Wall Monday

This week I finished the tubes for my first goal, I just need to cut out the blocks and iron them to finish my June OMG, which should happen by the middle of the week!  (Sorry no picture of this step, because there are other cooler things below.)

My husband and I celebrated being married for 5 years on Friday, where we had a nice romantic dinner out.  On Saturday, we went to the County fair as it is currently taking place, and as it is our wood anniversary I got my husband this awesome sign, which will be the center of our photo wall when we have a house.

Then we had flowers on the alter where we got married that was pretty close to what my bouquet looked like for our wedding.  Our church's florist did an amazing job with them.

To top off a great weekend, I pulled out my cross stitching, and started working on it.  I'm further along than even this picture as I was able to work on it during my lunch time today.  I have the motivation to get it done.  It will be a little while, but if I keep at it at a steady pace it will be done by the end of the summer, I think, fingers crossed.

After all of that excitement, it is time for my goals for this week, which are:

My first goal is to finish the second block type for my Mom's quilt.  I just need to cut the second strip sets (darker blocks), and then iron.  Then my June OMG will be done, and hopefully not at the last minute!

My second goal for the week is to finish trimming triangle units.  Every little bit of work gets it closer to being finished.

My third goal is to finish the binding on this quilt.  I got about half of what I wanted to get done, done last week, which means I have about one more night's worth of binding to complete.  Then it is burying the various threads from quilting.  There are not a lot on the front, but there are several on the back.  Not something hard to do, I just need to lay it out.

My fourth goal is to start working on my tutorial for a snowflake pillow for the Christmas in July blog hop that is taking place at Confessions of a Fabric Addict.  This blog hop has a ton of bloggers, and will begin on July 14th, so come on by and check it out.  I will be sharing my tutorial and a few other fun things on July 19th.

(Sorry no photo, as I do not have any yet, and do I want to spoil the surprise yet?)

Come back next week and see what I am able to accomplish this week!
