What I've Been Working On...

Hello!  :)


I've been pretty quiet here but busy behind the scenes. The last time we talked I had started the Autumn Sampler. This was my progress then . . . 


After working on it all week I've gotten a little farther along . . .


I'm still enjoying working on it. I finish one section and then I get to decide where to go next. It keeps it fresh and fun.  :)

Over the past couple of weeks I've managed to work on a few patriotic pieces for myself too. Here are glimpses of them . . .




And this one I already showed you . . .


This one is part of my twelve month collection, which I already showed you.


I'm planning on getting these patriotic pieces finished in the next couple days. Then I'll show you the finished pieces. Some of them are already half way done.  :)

With all the patriotic inspiration flowing . . . Have you heard about the "Celebrate the Red White and Blue" Blog Hop?


It started Sunday, July 1st. Participants were to create and share 10-1/2" or 12-1/2" quilt blocks. There have already been some wonderful blocks shared. The blog hop goes through July 16th with 6 participants each day and some hosting giveaways too! You can find the schedule here. I will be participating on July 14th. To be honest I haven't even started any blocks yet, but I will have them ready to go on the 14th. Afterall I am a procrastinator extraordinare!  ;)

Until next time . . .
