I love it when someone gives me permission to start something new - well, I would have any way. BUT, thank you Barbara of http://catpatches.blogspot.com/ for inspiring us to be creative and inspirational.
New projects for August:
Jelly Roll Quilt, Schnibbles candle mat (and color challenge), FMQ challenge, Dump Quilt (2), 12" Mini for swap, Doll Quil/Doll for swap, Tetris Quilt, and Bowls with Borders for Blog Hop. And of course, all the various block and quilt alongs that update each month.
I haven't shown these - the stars for http://temeculaquiltco.blogspot.com/ 'Summer Stars' mini quilt.
I'm, also, doing her 'Forget Me Not' quilt along - will show those next month.
And my SIL and I are making bags - after I didn't sign up for a bag swap because I don't make bags - duh. She is using the 'Mini Charmer' pattern - oh, it is gorgeous. And I found what I thought was a cute bag on E. Schenck - ' Sweet Sixteen' - oh, my oh, my!! I read the pattern at least a dozen times - so many mistakes - that I think I re-wrote the pattern before even cutting fabric. Well - I like a challenge!
The DOTS have arrived! I have so many dotty fabrics - this is just a smidge. Getting ready to work on my blocks for the Dots on Dots Blog Hop - my day is Sept 12th - my September NewFO project.
"The foliage has been losing its freshness through the month of August,
and here and there a yellow leaf shows itself
like the first gray hair amidst the locks of a beauty
who has seen one season too many."- Oliver Wendell Holmes
