3 Ideas to Get Motivated in May

may 2020 sign


I can’t believe it’s May already…I mean, it seems like just yesterday we were being told to stay home in mandatory orders of such from governmental officials…and now, some areas are able to start moving about again like normal. Others, not so much.

There has been so much going on now at the home front, I have now realized that my home isn’t cleaner because I don’t have more time at home. It’s just going to be as it is. LOL.

How has your quarantine been?  Things have been growing like crazy here for Sew Much Charm!  I feel like I’m busier than ever. 

If you are looking for ways to get motivated in May, here are three (3) ideas that are sure to get you motivated in your sewing room!  



The First Idea…
With May here, it is time once again to check out our Row by Row Mystery Quilt….To recap, we’ve had Love, Green, Be Outside, and now…this month’s theme…well, just click the link! 

My 7 year old has decided that  she should be able to tell me how to run the Shop and my blog, now for that matter.  She decided that May’s theme should be all about animals.  She has also decided that she should tell me how to quilt a client’s quilt…It’s getting rough over here!  LOL.  

If you’ve been following along, I’d love to see your Row by Row Mystery!  Be sure to tag us on Instagram using #sewmuchcharm.  


The Second Idea…

It’s also time to check out this month’s Applique Block of the Month! This month, Marvin the Meerkat will be on sale for the entire month of May. Grab him while you can! Since he is our special applique pattern this month – he will be available for $11 for the month of May, instead of $13!

There are lots of new items hitting the Shop Page every week!  Be sure to check back often and to follow the Facebook Page to be notified for all of the Live Box Opening Videos!  You can claim your goodies then or on the Shop Page.  Speaking of – Be sure to sign up for the newsletter on the blog to get your discount code for the shop.  

Applique is a great way to learn new methods for quilting and also to provide some great relief from all of the stress that we are enduring at this time.  If you are curious as to where to even start – I’m going to start making more videos on tips and tricks to keep you going!  Check out the first Applique Tutorial on our YouTube Channel

Do you have ideas for tutorials?  Comment them below the blog post and I’ll start making them!  



So many people are having so much fun with the Pattern Poole applique patterns that they’ve asked for kits to be able to make one purchase and get everything they need to make their project complete.  So here is what I was able to put together on a basic level – the Applique Block of the Month Kit for those who would like to get 6 new fat quarters, this month’s Pattern Poole Applique Pattern, and Steam-A-Seam to get your project going for one low price of $35.00 plus $5 shipping!  

If you are interested in the Basic Kit – with other Pattern Poole applique patterns – Email me and I will put it together for you!  

I hope you enjoy these three ideas to get you moving in your sewing or quilting room!  I will definitely be moving along in mine! 

Happy Quilting!
