I really have had fun with my sewing bee this year. This month's blocks are ready to send off to Nicole in New York. The trees went together fairly quickly while the snowman was quite the project - took a few days to do that one. I realized that I am better off with a pattern than I am with improv because with improv I keep thinking, oh I could do this and oh I could do that! The snowman was going to have a white background but then I thought a nice patchwork low volume would be fun. So here they are!
So those are my two blocks for Nicole!
Recently I stopped sewing for about a week. Yep, took a week off. Now I can't seem to stop with new projects - and old ones! I have too many things going, really. Yesterday I took the day for some girl time and went with my BFF, Sheila, to Vashon Island. Oh, why yes I did go to the quilt shop there! Island Quilters is THE MOST AWESOME SHOP! It was a sunny day (we always mention that in these parts since it's never a given, even in the summer), so the scenery was just stunning!
With August around the corner I'm working on my bee block post for my sewing friends! Here's the colors I've chosen for the skateboard quilt "girl style".
In combination with it being my month for the bee, I'll also be hosting a polaroid swap, which will be open to anyone! Fun, fun, fun! My polaroid swap from last month was so much fun I decided to host one myself. Here's what I received:
Let's Get Acquainted with Plum and June and I will be linking up to Fabric Tuesday at Quilt Story and Better Off Thread's Sew Cute Tuesday.
