These blocks are so much fun. I spent most of the day on this one. It had quite a bit of embroidery to fill in the details. Some of it I did with my sewing machine, and some I did by hand. These are the blocks I have for this quilt so far:
This is my project for this month's
Although I finished the block, I didn't get as much finished on the rest of the home front as I'd hoped. It was hot yesterday. I poked my fingers down into the annual pots and found them still damp. That was enough to get me to bag watering for the day. I absolutely must do it today. Also, the birds are half starved by now because I didn't fill their feeders either. A few housekeeping chores got crossed off the list, but there are still more to do. And I didn't even make my Fitbit goal, although I gave it a good effort. The only other thing accomplished yesterday was to get the calico sweet pickle relish into the brine. As I'm writing this, it's sitting in the sink draining from the rinse I gave it this morning. I'll cook it up and can it next.
So with all those things left undone, I had a hard time spending much time on my embroidery project this morning. I found myself itching to get at the rest of the stuff I need to do. I quit when I'd taken it this far.
There are still two items left on my July list of goals. Written in Thread still needs its final border, which is a pieced border:
That's next on my list of things to do in the sewing room. If I can finish that up this weekend, I can move onto my bonus points project...the wine carrier. If determination can get the job done, then I'll finish both projects this weekend. On the other hand...maybe not. Anybody want to place any wagers?
