OH Dear I goofed!!!
Oh my I was sooo sure I had all my BOM's done and then I realized that I not only did not have this month's bom for my local quilt shop done--I did not have last month's done!!!!!! BUT have no fear I got them done:
These are only 6 inch squares--but the flower one on the right is all done with needle turn applique ( as I do not do the "web" stuff) and it did take a little while to do--but they are done--and this time I will only say--I believe that all my bom's for July are done and that all my bom's are up to date:--how does that sound???
A CHRISTMAS CHALLENGE--- I am going to challenge all of you to do at least "3" Christmas projects during August with me--they can be anything you choose--ornaments, aprons, table runners, candle mats,stockings,quilts, wallhangings, placemats---the list goes on and on----
NOW when you get them done leave me a post in the comment section and let me know when you post them on your site and then your name will go into a drawing for the end of the month--and I will be giving away at least one of my new Christmas projects--and who knows what else???????
So be a ''dear" and think about joining me and it would be nice if I knew who was going to try to do the 3 projects--and yes they can even be UFO's---now I am really being good to you!!!
I am excited by some of the work I got done today:
This is the quilt top from quilt club 2008--last year--I have it this far--I did get the vines appliqued on awhile ago--and finally today I got the leaves and hearts that go along the vine traced, cut, and ironed onto the fabric--and I actually got "2" leaves sewed on already--hurrah for me!!!! My goal to get the applique done and the 2 outer borders on by July 31.
I will leave you with a picture I took last evening down at the lake of a family of ducks--Quack-Quack-Quack--it amazes me how fast these little babes can swim!!!!
Have a great day---Smiles and hugs, just, Di
