Sugar coating Sunday

Need another smile today?   Here's my 10 year old baby,  in my face, grinning that
"p l e a s e  Mom,  you know you want to do it for me"

July's W.I.P.'s

The blog has been quiet, but I have not.  I've been working on school book bags for 2nd graders, veterans quilts for a local rehab for veterans home, grocery bags and purse sets for church fundraiser quickly coming up in the fall;  and I tossed in some quick projects for myself.

I was committed to my bom's;  RSC15 Sampler, Cozy Afternoon, Keys to Contentment, Americana Row QAL and barely got one block in time for the Spring Row QAL.  as I decided to make time for that yesterday!  The button on the left sidebar will take you to the details of this project.





Here is the July block for Keys to Contentment.  You can see all the other blocks for this project HERE.



and .................  I finished my Road to Round Rock quilt.  Pictures soon.


I hope you had a great month of July.  Thanks so much for stopping by.

Cozy Afternoon QAL Block 3

I must be aiming for a red rasberry monochromatic quilt with this project.  Here is block 3 and I must say the embroidery gets done far too quickly.  Thankfully I have other handwork waiting for attention.



If you want to join in on this quilt along, just click on the button on my left sidebar.  It will take you to the sign-up page.  Jacquelynne is offering this pattern to appeal to all tastes, applique, piecing and embroidery.  There is also a pinterest page where everyone can show off their blocks.

RSC15 Sampler - July reds

These blocks keep getting easier to do.  Here are my red star sampler blocks.


I've started cutting up scraps for the squares needed in the alternating blocks.  I am getting anxious about this project and begin making up some alternating blocks very soon.  If you want to see all my blocks for this project, just click on the RSC15 Sampler tab at the top of the page.

 In the meantime, I'm linking up with Angela at Soscrappy where you can see all the wonderful projects being created with red this month.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a great weekend.
