still around

Well, it's been a month since I posted! Time's flying by but I have been sewing. I finished my June goal on time. My snowmen are soooo cute! Now to find the perfect red to set them up. Let's see; I started them in 1999. Whoo hoo, I got them embroidered in under 10 years. Hope it doesn't take me that long to get them quilted!

I've also been working on the wool block of the month and almost have the first block done. The wool feels wonderful and the varigated pearl cotton is fantastic to work with. Perfect tv work.

And believe it or not I have July's goal met and it's only the 7th of the month!!!! The goal was to get the borders on the pumpkin quilt. Why didn't I finish this years ago? Like in 2001 when I started it? It only took 2 evenings to do the half square triangles and finish the borders. I'm gonna try to get it quilted this month but..... Jaime came in with 2 of her friends. And they want sail rigger bags. Now I have 6 to make. And I've been getting into a clothing mood. I picked up a couple of patterns when I was in Lexington and I have the perfect fabric to make them. And I could really use some new tops and pants. Oh, and I found a neat purse pattern that's quilted. Need to put that on the to do list too. There should be more hours in the day!

Congratulations on finishing the snowmen. I can't wait to see what you do with them next.

The wool flowers are beautiful.

Great job on the pumpkin quilt. Can you tell the name of the pattern and where it is to be found?

I love the wool block--the flowers are so softly bright against the creamy background

I love the snowmen blocks. Congratulations on finishing them. I would love to know the name of the pattern and its designer.
