Meetup | April Goals

March was gone in a flash!

I’ve been in such a rush all month…a month that supposedly contained my “spring break” from the university. Last week I headed back over to Liz Kalloch’s blog to check in on the meetup folk who posted in last month’s meetup after me, and lo and behold, I hadn’t even commented over there…no wonder the commenting was light! I have a distinct memory of writing a comment about the lion and the lamb March thing, but probably when I pressed published Typepad wanted me to sign in with some account or another…and I must have gotten distracted! 🙁

Any old who! Here’s what happened:

I got a quick request from the folks at Quilting Arts to film a video extra for their new magazine “101 Patchwork Projects” that’s coming out this month. Of course I had to divert some time and energy to that! A custom scarf order turned into a bigger than normal project because I loved it so much I had to stop everything and take photos of it, and then the customer wanted it darker, so I had to re-do it. Oh, and then we had to re-organize the garage! And now…it’s show time!

If that looks like a lot to do, especially in the first week of the month…IT IS! Will I get it all done? I’m thinking no…but I’ll just do the best I can! I’ve got some really exciting guest post opportunities coming up, I’m so excited about those! But I’ve gotta balance that with those shows, which keeps the money a trickling in!

But, in the meantime, here’s the next round of “Moonlit Moth” for my client, who wanted more black.

Which do you like better?

  1. Your energy astounds me. I’m exhausted just reading your to-do’s! Congrats on getting so much done, and for doing the QA video! As for that gorgeous Moonlit Moth scarf, I have to say I like the 2nd variation the best. (Great photos, by the way!)

  2. Candy you never cease to amaze me! What anniversary is it this month? I love the drama in the 2nd Midnight Moth variation, the addition of black makes it pop. It 1st round has a beautiful softness but, since black is a staple in my wardrobe I’m drawn to the second one.

  3. You really do have a lot going on Candy! The scarves are gorgeous – but I must say I like the softness of the first one better.

  4. Phew its going to be a busy month. I got the form and in some not so spare time this month will go blog hopping looking for ideas. Good luck fingers crossed the shows go well.

  5. I like the vertical striped one the best! But truly they are both gorgeous. Hope your Get On the Bus was wonderful, and truly a huge good luck on the first week of April stuff. Hope it’s a great month for you Candy!

  6. Candy: wow I always am amazed when I visit you much going all the time but all fabulous…Angies site is stunning and really easy to navigate…awesome job…The scarves are beautiful…I like the vertical stripe too…I saw you in a photo advertisement in cloth paper scissors this month…way to go…Have a great April and don’t forget to BREATH 🙂
