July Madness

crafts, Quilting, UFO Challenge Comments: 4

IMG_1462Well, maybe we’re not mad, but I think July is a great time for being a little crazy. Long days, high temperatures, and a holiday sprinkled in. I hope you all had a wonderful Independence Day.

Did you finish your June UFO? I’ve pinned mine to my 2015 UFO Challenge Board. Actually I did several. This little pillow to your right was a real hoot. I also finished my first twin sized and I sent it in to be quilted. I’ve never had anything long-arm quilted, and I can’t wait to see it. I also did a little Texas lap quilt, which is not technically FINISHED, as I still need to add the binding. But I plan on doing that tonight while we watch baseball.

When the days are this warm, I craft a lot. It’s so hot in Texas that we’re only outside early in the morning and late in the evening. That leaves plenty of time for crafting and reading.

Which reminds me, I learned of a great way to be informed about an author’s “sale” books. Have you heard of the site Book Gorilla? You put in your email, then select what types of books you like to read, and you can even FOLLOW authors. When you follow me, you will receive notices of any books on sale. That’s pretty cool!

Now back to those UFO projects. If you haven’t started with us, this is a great time. You can finish 6 projects by the end of the year. If you have been following along, I hope you’re enjoying it and please do go post your pictures to my pinterest page. Send me an email if you’d like me to add your name to people who can pin on the board.(If you’re just beginning number 1-12 on a sheet of paper. Mark out 3, 4, 6, 7, 8, and 12. On the open numbers list projects you’d like to finish. (Any kind it doesn’t have to be quilting). — Our number for July is #1.

Blessings,

V

    I’ve never heard of Book Gorilla but that sounds great. I will definitely sign up! I did finish my June UFO. It was a sewing organizer that drapes over the arm of a chair/couch. It has a little pin cushion and a couple of pockets to store small items or to act as a thread catcher. The picture is on the pinterest board. I love your pillow!!
