A few finishes..

But not too many pictures … I have managed to get 2 quilts quilted and finished.  One more quilted waiting for it’s binding.  I have two more ready to put on the frame – they are crib size so I’m going to try and do 2 at a time.  I’ve never tried that before, but shouldn’t be to difficult.

I told you I was wanting to make mug rugs/ snack mats in last post – well here they are:

IMG_0049I fused the little circles  and then used a blanket stitch and went around each one.  These were fun to have on the table while we were playing dominoes.

Sew Fest is in September this year.  Last year I wrote a mystery and made this quilt:

finished quiltThis year there is another mystery that Cathy B. has designed.  She’s chosen different block patterns and assigned different colors for the blocks.  The mystery is that those of us participating don’t know what blocks/colors we’ll be getting… Here are my first blocks:

IMG_0002I made a mistake in one  0f the blocks but I won’t point it out and if I have time, I will redo them…

Going to return my sister-in-law’s dog tomorrow.  Will be a long day 4½ hours up and then the trip back.  We won’t stay the night as her daughter is staying with her until her stuff gets shipped from WA and her daughter has 4 dogs and hubby is allergic!  Not to mention she doesn’t have the sleep space with her daughter there. 

Next Sunday I’ll be headed to Disneyland with my son & his family.  I’ve started calling it our annual trek!  So this next week will be busy with getting ready for the trip.

Until next time -
