Design Wall Monday and lots of this, that

First, the linky party is open till next Thursday. See previous post. I may award a book or hexies - forgot to mention that.  And as to last week's giveaway, the winner is Sandy Panagos who very quickly contacted me. Her book, In a Twinkle, is on her way to her already.

Stash report:  Donated another two yards - largish scraps this time.  Used another 1/2 yard for the second bag, and a 1/2 yard finishing the baby quilt.  Woohoo, my new YTD total for stash busting rose to  37.06  yards.

And for that finished baby top:
I found the cutest flannel for the back of it.  More owls!
I hope you are enjoying your day.  Yesterday, it was only 103. But after two days before that of 113 degree days, it seemed cool to me.  Everything is relative.  Today they're predicting 101 which we may get as we actually had a few high clouds in the sky this morning. Blessings and a cool time sewing.


WIPs Be Gone

Almost finished with that baby quilt - bottom border to go.

And one more motif on one of the short borders of my 29 year old WIP and I'll be half done with the last border.

Otherwise too hot to do much.  Temp peaked at 110 yesterday.  Suppose to be hotter today.

Linky below.  Show me what you're up to -quilty or otherwise.


Now There are Two plus DW

Now there are two:
I turned them in at last night's guild meeting.  And these three are for a
baby quilt for St. Anne's.  They're on my design wall. One more to go. 

I'm giving away a quilt book - ends tomorrow, the 21st, midnight.  You can see the details on my July 16 post.


Slow Sunday Stitching and more

First off, I'm giving away a quilt book - ends Thursday, the 21st, midnight.  You can see the details on my July 16 post.

For my Sunday stitching, I'm slowly hand appliqueing my Dresden plate right now. Circle is done. Now working on blades.
Notice the repurposed fruit container - now my traveling sewing case - lol.  Visit Kathy's to see what others are stitching today. Button under Linky party tab above.

I did use some fabric this past week: a 1/4 yard for my medallion QAL; 7 yards donated to a local church (not St. Anne's we make baby quilts - they make quilts for Africa); and a 1/2 yard for this Happy Bag.  Our guild makes 400-600 bags to fill with goodies for the Loma Linda University Children's Hospital. patients. We distribute them at Christmas to their pediatric patients.  My YTD total for stash busting jumped to  34.06  yards.
Thought this might work for a 8-12 year old.  It's a very easy pattern.  You can find it here .

What are you up to?  Leave me a comment and I'll try to come by.
