Good-Bye July

Wow! I can’t believe that July is already over. I am actually pretty blown away by that fact. Tomorrow is my dad’s birthday – Anne and I spent Sunday doing some fun art projects and I mailed them yesterday – here’s hoping they arrive on time. Of course I didn’t take any pictures before we mailed them! DOH!

Sometimes when the month comes to an end I really feel like I haven’t accomplished anything but this month I really dug into my sewing room and despite my hands being completely uncooperative at times, I managed to get a fair amount accomplished – I even made a little mosaic to show you!

I actually managed to finish 4 quilt tops which just blows my mind and scares that pants off me too because that means I have 4 more quilts that need quilting! I got 4 bee blocks done (might get 2 more done today, we’ll see). I also made 2 pairs of shorts to donate to Hopeful Threads – and for all those who sewed…did you see that Kristy has more than doubled her goal for July – that is AWESOME! I also participated in a fun take on the game Telephone – that is my sunset that you are seeing.

Overall I am happy with my progress in July. Next month I am hoping to knock out my nephews quilt top, I will have a bunch of bee stuff to work on and then I will start quilting everything that needs to be done before I go back to California again for the holidays.

What did you get accomplished this month?

    You got SO much done, and despite all your pain! You are amazing. I wish I could ever get 4 quilt tops done in a month!

    Not a lot, but I’m happy with what I did do! I’m working on a special border to make my Flying Arrows into a rectangle. I have only been able to manage an hour a day sewing, and not always that, but it’s progressing! I also changed my quilting blog to wordpress.

    Oh, duh. I meant to also say that I love your collage! I’ll have to try something like that – when I have enough to do one! I’m so drawn to all your quilts this month, and that sunshine reminds me of Eric Carle. =)
