Here's the next hand project I'm going to be working on. Yea, it isn't very big (3 1/4" x 8") so it may get done in a week or two. Or if I go wild, a day or two and it may be finished! Must read the directions. I bought this at the 2017 Mid-Atlantic Quilt Show. It's aged enough. It's hard to tell on the picture but it is hanging on a very small hanger that I also bought. I'll probably need to figure out some additional projects to hang on it through the year. The kit came with a solid black fabric that looked flat to me. So I auditioned the bunny on several fabrics -- purple, beige, pink and green. Each of those colors washed out something -- the buttons used as flowers, the green stems and the bunny himself. So I found this mottled blue-black in my stash and thought this would do just fine. Bunny will become a mini flag quilt from a quite by Plays With Wool. There are a lot of additional mini flag patterns I can try.
I've also decided that posting my goals on any day but Monday isn't working. Most of the weeks I either didn't post them or posted them too late. So, as of today, I'm posting my goals on Monday again. One thing I'm going to try to do is limit myself to 4 major goals a week. I may start a secondary list that is more specific. My plan is to give myself enough on my list to keep me focused on projects I really want to finish and not to bore my readers with a list of 6 or 8 little things. We'll see if I can find a good balance. Do you use To Do Lists or Goals?
Here's my last set of goals, dated Mar 27 although I don't think I put them into a blog post.

Jenny, Brian and the grands came over Saturday for a visit. We hadn't seen them in several months. Some shorter person got hold of my phone and was able to take some pictures...actually video. Must speak with Jenny to see who was fussing with my phone! I have a password on it and try hard not to let anyone see it when I unlock it. Evidently some short person is very adept with iPhones!

That's it for me today. I'm linking up with my normal Monday Linky parties: Oh Scrap, Monday Making, Moving It Forward and Main Crush Monday. I'll be taking some time to see what's being worked on.
Happy Quilting All! Bonnie
