I already got a great start on my April OMG Goal. My goal for April is to get a bunch of handmade gifts done. First up are pencil pouches for my fifth graders. I work with kids for three years, so we are pretty bonded by the end of elementary school. I like to give them each a personalized gift--in the past, I have given book covers and little baskets. This year, I decided to make personalized pencil pouches. I asked each student for favorite colors and put their initials on them. I made 19 of them this weekend and I made 8 last weekend. I need to make two more--I need clarification on what initial to use and a color for the other one.
I am working on this mug rug for a gift for a friend. The pineapple is a 4x7 inch block. I am hand embroidering the quote right now and I hope to quilt and bind it this evening.
My other gifts I need to complete are nine tea towels for my school secretaries--Administrative Assistant's Day is Wednesday, April 26th.
Well, I think that all these handmade gifts are plenty for my April OMG Goal. Check out what everyone else is working on here:
