May’s Goals & Episode 23 (The Chatter’s Back)


May is going to be another crazy month. This month my daughter graduates high school! At the end of the month I have a BUTT LOAD of people coming to stay at my house (and various other houses in the vicinity) so they can witness my daughter’s graduation and celebrate with us. All of this on an unemployment income….hehehe! I am very much looking forward to having everyone here but it will cut into my sewing time….grrr!

Additionally, I need to start planning the trip to Florida, to take my daughter to college. We don’t have the exact date yet, but in the meantime, we have supplies to gather, classes to pick and her room to pack.

We also need to find a house (we have decided what general location we are moving to but I will save that for the Podcast) and start packing, selling and pitching!

AND I am going to start podcasting again! If all goes as planned there will be a podcast attached to this very post. It should be a short episode as I am just getting back into the swing of things but here is what I talk about:

  • what to expect
  • the unemployed life
  • the most recent wedding (and what a doozy that was)
  • my monthly’s
  • Kaylah’s quilt – the quilting (I need some feedback)
  • May’s goals

Here are the promised pictures of Kaylah’s quilts so that you get a better understanding of what I mean in the podcast:

T-Shirt Side
T-Shirt Side
Chevron Side
Chevron Side


So as to ensure I qualify with a “written” list for May here are my goals:

  1. Quilt Kaylah’s T-Shirt Quilt
  2. Make my mom an apron for Mother’s Day
  3. Make myself another skirt
  4. Quilt The Revamp Top
  5. Complete all my monthlys

Probably won’t get but a couple of those things done but ya know! I should probably put “maintain lawn” on that list since it has become one of my new jobs since The Hubs is now disabled and I am unemployed! Pro: Good Exercise  Con: Good Exercise

Ok, if we are going to talk about exercise I am outa here! BYE!


PS: If you are one to listen to the podcast from the website, the player is just below here. And please let me know if you have any problems with that or with iTunes (fingers crossed for a seamless restart)!!

  1. Oooh I have the day off tomorrow so will get to listen, and find out if ‘doozy’ is good or bad!

  2. Just listened – sat in the garden – welcome back, nice to hear you again 😉

  3. Good luck with the moves 🙂

  4. I listened yesterday Rhonda and it is great to have you back!! I think we call the weed whacker a whipper snipper – I think that must be the brand name. I listened in the hotel room while knitting and watching the ocean, if only I could listen to all your podcasts like that! mx

  5. Oh, I forgot to give you my 2 cents worth on how to quilt Kaylah’s quilt! I like the idea of quilting the chevrons in the different colours you suggested, maybe just the one colour in the bobbin though so the t-shirt side is consistent. I think the t-shirt side will look fine with the chevron quilting mx

  6. Love the chevron side of her t-shirt quilt. Love the idea that it is double sided.

  7. Lovely to have your podcast back. I would quilt the whole quilt with the chevrons and I would be inclined to use pink thread on the pink part but that is because I really don’t like monofilament thread. Or buy a couple of soft sheets and make two quilts, using the sheets as the backs, but that takes longer. And you made the rules for the modern stitching bee and the queen bee was supposed to make test blocks first, just saying.

  8. Oh bliss, you are back! Did I hear you say you were moving to California? 🙂

  9. So nice to listen to you again! Loved it.
