No I'm not switching hobbies! Once a year the golf group that Mr. Polka Dot belongs to does this Jack and Jill event. The men do the big golfing, and us women folk do the putts!! The men are avid golfers, the women avid talkers. It is fun and lots of laughs at the expense of those of us who are doing the putts!!!! It was so darn hot...quite a miserable day weather wize, so riding in the carts at least gave us some blasts of hot wind!
This is my latest start. Originally I bought this kit for a raffle quilt for the zoo. It was from Fons and Porter and in their current magazine they are advertising a kit with Zebras that will be available in September. Since the fund raiser is for the zebras I thought that would be a better quilt and this one will be for my girl. Fun to make but a bit more piecing that I realized. I just have the inner and outer borders left and it's done.
I have my July finish done. These blocks were made years ago by three of my quilting buddies. I had the rows together, and all that was needed was the scrappy outer border. I can't imagine why I never finished it. So sweet and I love the no binding edge and of course the buttons.
The plan for this week is get that basket quilt finished, but being the serial starter that I am, there is probably some new something that will be calling to me!!!
August 10th will be my two year blogaversary.....which means giveaway!
So stay tuned. Wishing you all a great start to your week with some sewing tucked in here and there.
