Theme-a-licious Amazon April Wrap-Up

Well, I didn't get to everything I wanted to during Amazon April, but progress is progress, right? Here is where Random Thoughts ended up:
The little stitcher down there seems to be pointing accusingly, "Why did you go over and stitch that 'V' instead of GIVING ME FEET??" I...I have no answer for her.

I did also get one sleeve done on my Origami Turtle (NOTE: still not an actual turtle)
The reason I got this done is because it's relatively mindless, and work hasn't been leaving me with much of a mind these days.

Now it's time for...
May Memories
Remember when you took that class? Or decided to commemorate that event? And then abandoned your poor WIP? Take a stroll down memory lane by working on it again.

I initially came up with this theme because I have taken a lot of needlework classes in my life. A LOT. But you could also use this month to work on your oldest WIP(s)! Or maybe look for one you've set aside, and now you can't remember why!

This is going to be a short month for me, because we are going to be in Europe for part of it. Plus, work is going to continue to be rough, AND I have a travelling pattern that has arrived here that I need to get done! So, here's my list...
  • Blackwork Band Sampler - This will be great to work on when I go to Orlando for Sun Region EGA's Stitcher's Celebration
  • Les Rubans Anciennes - yes, again. =) Part of the fun of Theme-a-licious is figuring out how the project you WANT to work on fits in with the theme
  • Grandmother Star Temari - See, there's this NEW temari class I want to take...

So how did Amazon April turn out for you? What are you planning for May Memories? Please add your link below (to your wrap-up post), and visit some other Themers if you can (everyone loves comments and encouragement!) Our next post will be on the 15th, when we'll check in for May Memories! And don't worry if you haven't posted before...just jump in whenever.

Oh, gosh, I did terrible for Amazon April. I suppose I'd better get my blog post ready for today. I think I will do better for May.

Hi Heather, I love your Random Thoughts! Thank you for Amazon April, it has given me the chance to work on a poor neglected wip of mine, and this will happen also with May Memories!

Two little feet short? Poor little stitcher! I think this is my favorite of your WIPs. I even have the pattern on my wish list now ~ lol!

My post is up. I nearly forgot!
