A Few Things

I'm happy to say that the baggy of Civil War scraps is now empty.  I made 12 more floating stars (5" unfinished"), 10 Chunky Churns (5.5" unfinished), and 1 patchwork block that was a result of chaining between some of the other piecing.

I will be participating in the Christmas In July Hop (new button on the side bar), so the tote of seasonal fabric had to be pulled out.  I don't particularly like working with this fabric type, but I have a project I have been wanting to tackle and it was good timing.

I need a white background for this project and dug thru my whites and found this snowflake w/w.  A large piece, some chunks and strips - there just might be enough of this, plus it will be cleaned out of the tote.

So while we finally experiencing some HEAT here in the NorEast, I laugh as I am working on a Christmas project - maybe it will keep me cool.

Sewingly Yours,

Waiting to see your July posts, and to get some scraps used, all good news.

Good luckwith that keeping you cool! If it works, I'll try it! Enjoyed seeing your blocks.

I tend to watch Christmas movies during the summer, to make me feel cooler.

I just finished binding a Christmas quilt, which seemed so ironic as we starting a heat wave this week. Looking forward to your blog hop project. Happy stitching this week.
