June Goal

Last day of the month. 
Are you wondering how I did on my Lovely Year of Finishes?  
I'm sure the Cheer group of do. Good Stitches is.  
Well, I put all the bee blocks together and decided it was too small, 
so I added 10 more blocks to make it a little more generous.  

It's 111 here today and just too hot outside for a quilt photo, 
so my honey sweetly volunteered to hold it up.

It's looking good. 


 I'll be back in a couple days with a recap of June. 
I got a few things done that I will share.  
Right now, I have all my grandchildren (three) here for a few days, 
and I snuck this post in during nap time. 

Happy Stitching : )

Just One Of My WIP

I'm home for the Summer, so I get to participate in WIP Wednesday. I was sewing early this morning (my favorite time to sew) when I realized it was Wednesday. I quickly snapped a couple photos and thought I would link up before heading out the door today.


This chevron is just one of the projects I have going right now.


I don't always iron my seams open, but don't they look cool?


Here's a little bit more progress. I'm using a jelly roll I had on hand and it's going together so quickly.

I'm linking up with WIP Wednesday over Freshly Pieced

Just Two Hours To Go!

 Today was my first day off work for the summer, 
and the day just got away from me. 
I'm cutting it really close, with just two hours to go, 
I'm going to post my June goal for A Lovely Year of Finishes. 


It's my month to quilt for the Cheer group of do. Good Stitches, 
and these are the blocks sent to me. 
Aren't they beautiful? I just love them.  
I didn't do the math ahead of time and as is, 
this will be a small quilt. 
I need to add borders or more blocks. 

My June goal is to make ten more blocks and make the quilt top.

Whew, I think I made the linky deadline!

Happy Stitching : )
