Tuesday, July 30, 2013


These are embroidery patterns I got from Starwood Quilters blog. She shared one each month and it has been so much fun for me to wait for the next one! I have kept up with it and even put my first 6 together! Cute huh?
This month (July) she shared Decembers snowman so we got two! What a bonus! Thank you so much!

My New Best Buddy in My Sewing Room

I bought this "oldie but goodie" at a yard sale for 2 dollars. It is exactly what I had been looking for!
I am so tired of paying high prices for name brand irons only for them to go out on me within 2-3 years. I tried calling the company about repairs or replacing and they said they would be happy to repair the problem but it would cost me $89.00! The iron cost me $129.00 so it was't worth it to me to pay the cost of shipping and repair.
This one was made by General Electric and I'm not sure of the year. 
Anyway, it works wonderful!

Gosh, this year is flying by!! Hard to believe it is August already!
These are my 3 projects for August.
I will make the last block for the Halloween wall hanging that was a BOM a couple of years ago (at least) from Pearl Louise Designs in SD.

I also want to finish this Arkansas Razorback quilt to sell and raise funds for the Senior Ceter in Lincoln, Arkansas

And my third UFO is to make at least one block for my Merry Merry Snowman quilt.
What do you think? Can I get them done? I'm sure gonna give it a heck of a try!
How about you all? What are your sewing plans for August? Any goals?


Good morning!
Well, I totally forgot to post my July UFOs! I don't know how it got away from me. But I did get them done! I planned to finish binding my Halloween quilt, Make another row for my Lori Holt "Row Along" and add another block to my Halloween wall hanging.

Bound Halloween Quilt

Butterfly row for Lori Holts Row Along

And last but not least are my two blocks for the Halloween Wall Hanging. The cat with the pumpkin and Cat on the fence.
I love these UFO projects! I love the feeling of getting them done, even if it's ever so slowly but I see progress and that is what counts for me.
I will be listing my projects for August here shortly.
