7 Months to Christmas! Goals for June!

May was a busy month for me- a lot of progress was made, but not a lot of finishing was done.  I'm hoping this month will be good for some finishing!!!  I've been updating my lists as I go along, and you can see that I have one person completely done and almost one thing done for every person who is getting multiple items.  Some items changed- based on other things that I tried or worked out.

Check out my updated list:


Must Craft For:
Queen Bee  -   pillow/snowflake  (pillow needs back, stuffing and seaming)
Striker – single serving treats/pies in jars/something food/hotpads/snowflake {blanket 2013}

Lucy –  bed sized blanket/snowflake
MIL - snowflake/hotpads/hat/scarf{blanket 2012}
SIL - cowl/snowflake {blanket 2013}
Linney – dw mittens/snowflake/ dw crochet hook
Hubs -  Extra big & long blanket/sampler style?  (12 squares of 24-30 done, depending on how big 24 comes out)

Would like to craft for:

Completed:

Creeper hat
12/24 or 30 squares for Big and Long Blanket
1/10 Hotpads
Pillow Front

As you can see, I've completed a few things that make me happy- particularly the squares for the big and long blanket.  They're working up really nicely and I'm working out many kinks as I go.  In fact, I'll probably host a Mystery CAL after the holidays with this as the pattern!  I've got 10 different squares I've designed, and am using 10 different colors throughout (kind of an experiment in using up some leftover yarn in semi coordinating patterns)

I've pretty much set everything that everyone is getting, and am now focusing on making big progress on wiping out some of the easier projects this month so I can cross some more people off my lists!  I will be doing a lot of traveling this month and was thinking that hotpads would make great car projects!!  Plus, cotton is easy to fit into bags and they're light and small for the summer heat.  

This month, make sure your list is finalized, and try and finish a person or two to make the rest of your year easier!    Let me know how you're doing in the comments below!
