Here we are at the end of the month, and I don’t know about you, but with all this heat, thinking Christmas is a bit difficult. I started off with one idea for my project and soon realized that one was a bit to ambitious, so here’s my finish. What is it about yo yo’s…I love making them, and I have enough to make another couple trees. I don’t know if you have visited Carol’s blog….she made a Christmas project each day for the month of July. Stinkin’ cute, adorable, wonderful, amazing…..stop me I could go on and on…..projects, and on her post for TODAY she has a collage of all the projects….again AMAZING!!!!!! Darlene will have Mr. Linky up tomorrow for you to link up your Christmas gifts for the month….and also there is a giveaway!!! Have you seen the Seven Days of Christmas Blog Hop going on over here? Seven days of Christmas blocks and ideas…whoohoo!!!!!!!
The end of the month also means a finish for Another Year of Schnibbles, hosted by Sinta and Sherri. Thanks girls!!! This month it was the pattern of our choice, and I went with Spot. Someday when time permits, I want to make a wall hanging out of this. The pattern goes together like butter, and I love it in Vintage Modern. Runners seem to be what I can get done these days.
The last four years I have spent my Wednesday evenings sewing with a fun group of ladies at one of the local quilt shops. Recently the owner decided it was time to step away from the shop…..sadness for all for sure……..BUT, great news. One of the longarmers, and friend to all of us, January, decided to step in and buy the shop, and Cherry Berry Quilts was born. It’s so exciting to see the changes happening. January, along with her mom Joan, Theresa who worked for the previous owner, and many, many helpers, the new shop is coming to life. Fabric, notions, patterns and books are arriving daily, and classes are high on the agenda. Of course our open sew Wednesday group is already up and going. So
fun. Last Wednesday the classroom was full! Congratulations January….you are off to a great start.
Saturday the family went to an Angel game . The Dots had a great time, and Big Dot loved yelling as loud as he could..and the clapping was fun of course. Only sad part, our girls guy couldn’t be with us. We will get him next time!!!!
Then there is this Thursday…….QUILT RETREAT!!! Four fun filled days of sewing, sewing, sewing, eating and lots of laughing…snorting laughing I bet. Hopefully I will get some things done :-)!! Sunday, and I can’t believe this, Big Dot will be 4. Party time Sunday night!!!!!!!!
Happy end of the month everyone.
