New changes

This last week I have started having small headaches again.  I have to
be really careful, because they can quickly go into a full blown
migraine.  Mine get very bad.  So I have to take meds then slow down
to make sure that doesn't happen.

Sunday, my husband and I celebrated our 23rd anniversary.  We went out
to dinner on Saturday.  But we also spent the day at my family
property getting it ready for the summer.  We took in a big box
to hold all our camping equipment, so we don't have
to haul it up and down the mountain every time we want to 
go camping.  I took some pictures of some flowers around camp, these are just
a few of my favorites.

As of new changes, I'm wanting to get more things worked on during
the day than just one project here and one project there.
So I have decided to work on one project for an
hour then switch to another the next hour.  I have alarms set
so I know when to change.  I felt like I was able to 
work on a lot more today.  I did get 2 name tags bond.  But that was all
that got completed.  I'm OK with that, because there were several 
things that got worked on.  I feel better.  Maybe the hour is not the best time.
I may need to push it to 2 hours, but I'm going to give it one week.
Here are some pictures of what I did today.

May's Block Count

This month has been been pack full with blocks that I feel like they have
been coming out my ears.  Because of the large amount I will try to give you
a better run down of where they all came from.  There 166 blocks that
I can't link you back to because they are to a quilt that is going
to the publisher.  Plus, it is an exclusive quilt for my 
grand baby.  I'm redesigning it a little to be published, 
because my grandchildren get a one of a kind quilt.

There are 22 blocks that are for my 16-patch quilt.  
I love them.  They help my quilting
go so fast.

I did 2 Jump Start block for EQ7.  You can find the blocks
here and here.

I have been doing Aviatrix quilt along.  It started in the middle of May.  I have
done 64 blocks for this quilt, so far.  You can find out about
these blocks on this post and this post.

I have started doing some wool applique.  I wanted something to do
while I was sitting waiting at the doctor's office, or I could do at
night.  I haven't blogged about them yet.  This is something I 
should do this week.  I have done 4 blocks.  Two of them I sent to a
friend that was having a bad month.

That just leaves my Leader & Enders.  They came in at 92.  They always seem
to help jump the count up.  Plus I get another quilt done
when I am working on one.

For the grand total that is 350.  How did I do that?  I was really surprised.
I was really shocked!
