My main progress in April was on the Charade quilt:
I also started sewing my Tilted Tiles top together. Though not fully there yet.
I made good progress on some projects but didn’t finish a quilt. I neither bought anything so a very boring report ;)
The topic I am reading the most about – besides quilting – is minimalism. So I thought I will put my best reads from this month in here in case you are interested too :)
- 20 Things You Probably Own Too Many Of
- 4 Steps to Decluttering Your Home More Effectively
- The Power of a “What If We Didn’t Own This?” Bag
Just starting your minimalism journey? This is a great list to start, including tips on what to do with them.
A different way of prioritizing what to declutter first.
I guess the title says it all ;)
And a few more articles not so directly about stuff but minimalism related topics:
- How a Writing Process Can Bring More Ease to Your Life
- Influencers Aren’t the Problem. You Are.
- How to Declutter Your Fantasy Self and Embrace Your Current Reality
This is only partially about writing: “Give yourself something to edit.” With lovely examples applied to minimalism.
A discussion about influencers – and that they have been here since the dawn of time. So how do you want to influence?
Did you know the term fantasy-self? I found it very interesting.
Besides sewing, I spend a good portion of my time planning special events. My Mom will be celebrating her 70th birthday this year and we designed the invitations for two events – one for family, and one for friends. We also started to plan decoration and order table cloth and such. Also, my Dad is celebrating 20 years of marriage soon and my sister and I are coordinating the group present and some special porcelain decorations – which is the theme for this amount of years here in Germany.
I hope you enjoyed my recap of the month and the extra insides into what is happening over here.
