Last August Play Day


I had intended to start this much later, but with my scheduled 'lists' completed ahead of time - you have to play.  And I'll blame you all, too, as you told me to skip the housework.


This is Kaaren's of The Painted Quilt new mystery.  I have made a number of her free patterns and have never been disappointed.  Since I have one day of the month for play, I will work on the 2nd step of this as a leader/ender....


while I work on a few more of these Sawtooth Stars.  I need 51 stars of which 12 will be set into a larger star - and there is one tiny star.  I have 20 done and I am following Barbara Brackman's Star's in a Time Warp , so maybe by the end of the year I will have these done.

** linking up with Monday Making and Patch Work Times **

What are you working on for the last day of August?

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  1. Nice progress and I have to work today so new sewing for me. But I might get the last Kate Spain Christmas Charm Swap package in the mail today so I can finish up the stacks and get them packaged to go out to their new owners.

  6. Lovely houses. I started collecting Kaaren's mystery patterns and realized there was no way I would be starting another new quilt for quite a while! What? A reality check? I guess so!
