Scrappy Wednesday

There was a good start on the 'Summer Scraps' project yesterday.  All 40 light lozenges were finished and the 40 dark lozenges just need their last flip corner.  Then they get a good pressing (I finger press all this small stuff) and I can get the center section of that quilt together.  But I need to move on to something else as this got a little tedious.

In my on-going effort to clear out sitting projects and empty some totes, this was found.  This Trip Around the World variation has sat for too long.  Just eight more rows to finish it off.  I had stacked and clipped those rows, but didn't number them.  It shouldn't be hard to figure those out and I hope to get the rows sewn up this morning.  I have a noon trip and when I come back home I can get this into a flimsy.

Like so many, I can't believe we are in August!  BUT - I am so happy to see July gone as you can see.  There were a lot of 'side' items taken care of during July that were not on the calendar.  August will be a home time with a lot of computer work, phone calls to make, and letters scheduling for business/meetings/show for the Quilters Hall of Fame.  I will have more time to clear more projects and empty totes. 

Bella will be glad I will be home more.  She is such a creature of habit and gets very grumpy when things are not her normal routine - like Mom home at her side all the time.

Moe, will be happy I am home more now, too.  He will sit at the end of the sidewalk or lay in the drive where I park my car waiting for me to return.  His favorite thing to do - lay in an open tote or box of fabric scraps for some supervising.

Sewingly YOurs,

Your July calendar is positively scary! (And I can't believe it's August already, either...)
Love seeing all your scrappy projects - enjoy your home-time!

Too busy a July, I hope the cats give you the news that August should be an "at home" month and you have some free time for yourself.

Oh the joys of having cats. They help us in many ways.

I hope your August is a lot more calm and you can enjoy your time at home.
