Official May Goal

For the Year of Lovely Finishes, my May goal is to finish the Heal Circle's do.good.stitches quilt.

I really have no excuse for not having it done, other than some of my mojo seemingly evaporating post Stash Bash.

Heal Circle quilt

It's on my to do list.  I have two quilts to baste tomorrow.  Going to start quilting it then.

I started working on my clutches.  I have the linings cut and sewn.  I'm working on the embellishments of the outsides today.  I want to wait until it's not wet to do the gluing, so I can do it in the open air.
Anyone ever Scotchguarded bags before?  Does it screw up the metal if you do it at the end?

Wedding update:

This one sucketh.  Hard.  I was testing a new lipstick for the wedding.  It had aloe in it.  I thought it would, at the worst, make my lips peel.  Uh.  No.  It sparked a rash on my upper lip that made it feel like it was on fire.  (The one time I ever got my brows waxed, it felt like this.)  Ow.  I got lucky that the PA at the derm fit me in today.  Steroid creme for a 5 days.  Ow.  So, my perfect red wasn't so perfect.  Blarg.

Blarg is right. That just stinks. I've never heard of someone allergic to aloe before. Good luck with your plan.

Love the quilt HATE the lipstick story. I have had that happen with eyeshadows sometimes and it wasn't pretty (probably why I gave them up :-). Good luck on the quilting!
