I admit it--I'm not a very reliable blogger.
|In my defense, I have a new family member that has been keeping me very busy! She's approximately 6 months old and quite a rascal--it's like having a toddler in the house!|
|I did find time to finish my One Monthly Goal. |
The gals at the Breezy Point sew-in kindly held up the quilt I had brought along to bind so I could get a good photo. This was from the Foothills SAL and I added two extra rows to make it bed size.
|I also was gone a few days for my first retreat of the month.|
Clar Rene's son digitized our logo and turned into an embroidered motif---pretty cool, huh?
|And here are a few gals sporting the iron-on logo along with Clar Rene showing her embroidered bag. 4"x5" blocks. I had cut these out ahead of time so they went together pretty fast. I'm up to 87 blocks now and plan to make all 182.|
|I wasn't too keen on this block, but now I think it's my favorite of the bunch.|
|This was my second project. |
I had made the Little Boys Britches blocks at a previous retreat and was determined to get them put together at this one.
|And this tree for Edyta Sitar's Patches of Blue SAL was my third goal.|
|These are all the monthly parts so far.|
I scored a lot of Edyta's blue fabrics while on retreat--a couple from the sale room at Gruber's Quilt Shop, several more at the Fabric Warehouse that's closing in Willmar, and even won a couple of her batiks during the "Fat Quarter Dice Game" we played one night. I think I should be set for the rest of the SAL now--lol!
|This is Foothills on my bed at Camp.|
I took it along for Show and Tell so I wouldn't have to dance the Hokey Pokey.
|I can't resist showing another photo of little Willow. She weighed 11 pounds the last time she was at the vet--pretty small.|
She is a rescue pup--possibly a Westie/Chihuahua mix according to her vet.
Sorry!!! I can't stop taking her picture!
I have another retreat planned for Monday. Luckily I could leave most of my things in the car and just pack clean clothes and a couple new projects to work on.
See you next month!
