July has been a very busy month! Happily I was able to get in some sewing, as I continued to work on clean up. My goal this month was a simple one. (You can read more about that here.)
I am pretty proud of myself. I not only finished my goal for July but I also finished a pattern testing project that you can see here and I was able to keep up on my #yearofscrappytriangles and #amandasminiqal (pictured below).
Boy does my design wall need a thread cut….lol!! It has been a lot of fun having something to look forward to each week. No Pressure No Deadlines
However, I am really missing my normal sewing schedule.
Something else that happened in July is I did receive my zipper order from Zipit . This was my first order and I am very pleased with the quick service and wonderful little thoughtful extras she put in. Since running out of my inherited zips (from my grandma) I have been on the look out for another source.So now I can start on some Sew Together Bags that I am making for a private swap (I am very late!) Though my swap partners are being oh so great about it. I was so excited when I received this particular package!!
I have been thinking about my goal for August. I think I have it figured out. Happy Dance!! You will have to wait until the first week of August to find out. I like to tease that way….just a tidbit here and there. I am hoping that it inspires you to subscribe to my Blog so that you never miss out. What else can I say about July……so much has happened (non-quilting related)……… updates on that here.
I did have a fun day with my husband recently! We went for a nice drive to Thorp. Then up and over Blewett Pass then dropping down into Wenatchee to watch a movie. It was a beautiful drive with very little traffic!! We saw Jurassic World 2.
Some movies should just be seen in the theater. We figured out that it has been over a year or so since we’ve gone to the movies. Way TOO LONG…..
This year has been too serious.
Below is my finish in the Elm Street One Monthly Goal. It isn’t too late to join in on this monthly event. I have found that it helps me stay on task or at the very least in my sewing projects. Even if I do not finish or even look at my project again, I am playing with my fabrics and dreaming.
I absolutely love how this top turned out.
Such a quick sew! In this particular one I am using someone else’s UFO fabrics and blocks. All I had to do is finish up a few HST and trim down to the proper size. I couldn’t believe how easy it was.
I would love to make another one in all the holidays……………..Halloween, Christmas, St. Patricks Day, Easter, Fourth of July…….and so on! It is a good size measuring 72″ x 72″. If you would like to make your own, the free pattern is Here! I would love it if you shared your version with me. Just send me a pic in my email, IG or Google +!!
