Wrapping up August 2016


It was a busy month, starting off with getting my Mom's exhibit set up and the 'meet the artist' reception.


I had some commission work that was on a tight time frame.  I made four of these wallhangings that were used as presentations to some top contributors to the SALT - Schoharie Area Long Term (recovery from Storm Irene 5 years ago).

 

As well as these little key chain purses were designed on a request.  I will be putting a tutorial together for September.


Slow Sunday Stitching has helped me stay on track with '365' and my hexie projects.


Kept up with the little blocks for Temecula's 'Circa 2016'.


I am waiting on the next 'Westering Women' block.


The blocks for 'Adinkra' and Emily brought me this lovely fabric back from Africa for my setting blocks in this project.


Squeeked in my 'Let's Book It' project which has been switched to hand basting because it will travel and those pins will end up everywhere.


And the 'Scrap Problem' is slow going as those three large bags (and I got more in) are headed for several projects.  The smallest of bits are little block play as I can catch it - I find it relaxing.  Actually all my monthly projects are from scraps, even the wallhangings I did for commission was fabric off the shelf.

There was Pet's on Quilts, I attended a  quilt show, and even squeezed in a couple of days of babysitting for the grands.

September is not going to be a slow down either,
Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  8. My daughter in law would love your mother's quilt (top picture). She pointed out several patterns that were similar, when I was in Alaska earlier this month. Those are her colors, too.
