- Random goal (held over from March): the bowling-style knitting bag. still not done
- Finish the argyles, and start a pair of socks for Steve. Done
- Finish collecting signatures on the Crumbs auction quilt, quilt it and bind it, and turn it over to the auction. Done!

- I'm keeping that knitting bag sewing project on the list because I'm stubborn. Maybe I really need to take it off the list and give up on it, and that will spur me to actually work on it. I dunno.
- Quilt and bind the Orca Bay quilt.
- Finish the current socks for Steve. (I'm only about halfway up the foot). Maybe start a new pair of socks -- but I'm starting to experience sock fatigue.
