Yes..some sewing!!

Okay so yes I got to sew some this past weekend!!

Got caught up on the Calendar Quilt . Yes was a few weeks behind!
It is ready for me to begin week 2 of June now!! YES!

I sewed up the Watermelon/Crow sqs with sashing.
Such a pretty yellow with tiny red dots in there too.
Makes me think sunshine.
I will use it also as border around outside of the blocks …then thinking a red and maybe a black.
Keeping it simple. Will work on it some more later this week.

I decided on a wool project for my "doctor office waits" project! Ha!!
Decided what I wanted drawn on wax paper, cut out, pressed on the wools, cut out and glue tacked to my black wool backing!!
Was a job!! I used wool and wool felt I had on hand already felted.
As of now not sure what I will do with it..pilla , penny rug or wall hanging.

Colors are not coming out good on pics.
When I get some of the thread work done will take pic outside .
If I do not get it done with all Aunt Dot’s appts will use for DH’s procedure on the 24th!!;-)
Today will be the first 2-3 hour long one . We leave about 11:30 AM.
I have in my tote the wool project ready with thread and needles.
Also a book or word search if I want a rest from stitching, my water and snacks!!
Just wish I still had my small thermos, I would take my afternoon tea with me!!;-)


  1. I am glad you are sewing! I have been trying to organize my sewing room and I will get to sew too! :)
    The watermelon project is cute!
    Good luck with the wool, aren't you hot:) Just joking! :))

    Happy sewing!

  2. Love both projects you showed today.

  3. Your watermelon is so cute. It looks like you are having such fun with it!

  4. So, you got to sew and didn't burst. Thank goodness for that haha. You got lots done, too. Those wool projects are great - perfect handwork for waiting at the dr. office.

    The yellow sashing was a great choice for the watermelon quilt - such a happy colour.

  5. That's a fantastic effort. I wish I had acheived half that much. Your wool project is delightful.

    Happy Stitching...Ann :)
