I have put my sewing machine away for a while. There's so much to do while the weather is nice, and we are also having family visiting, so I really needed some excuses to clear the kitchen table of some sewing projects. It actually feels good to be able to do some other things. When my son sleeps, I usually do sewing, but now I am working on a digital photo album of a trip to India that I did in January 2005! Hopefully, I can get that album done quickly... & then I'll have to make an album for my son. Too much to do & too little time.
I counted all my sewing projects that are in various stages of work... and I have about 10 in all! That is a lot of sewing!!
I was due to purchase the last (August) block for the "Two Toonies Thursday" (Star Search) quilt along, but the store has closed its doors... and since there are no notices, I have no idea how I could potentially get the last quilt block. I think I'll have to improvise & make one myself. It's so unfortunate to see a local quilt shop close its doors... especially when it carried such beautiful fabrics.
This is block #4 (of 5) for the Rockin Robin Quilt Along. I still have to do block #5. The quilt along is actually for a quilt, but I will put a tablerunner together instead.
I finished off the 12 quilt blocks for the Summer Sampler Series Quilt Along. It was a lot of paper-piecing, but it was fun & good practice.
Here are some of the last blocks & some of them required 12 templates before I could put them together!

Here is the August block for the Birdie Stitches Quilt Along.
I made some fun, cute baby bibs.
This week I bought some flannel & cotton & made this cute little receiving blanket.
