July Wrap

I had already determined that July was pretty much a wash, so I didn't even make any goals.  What were my accomplishments?

I finished binding this quilt at my mom's house.  The quilt for Miss Violet who is due in the month of August and presented it to my brother and sister in law at a family party.


I finished the quilting on my Basket Case Full of Poseys, I need to fix some areas, tie off my threads, and square up for the binding.



I also manage to get the brown bagger block for the month of July finished, thanks to my friend Denise who was kind enough to turn my block for June in and pick up my bag for July.


And all of those rows I collected while on vacation?  I finished an easy one.  This is was from Quilting Delights in Happy Valley, Oregon.  This may be one of my vertical rows in a quilt.  I am also thinking of putting a border around, and adding an embroidered label for the quilt shop and location.
I also sneaked in a pillowcase for one of the grand daughters who had a birthday while we were gone.
I did do a bunch of mending for the 2nd to the oldest daughter, and I still have a dress to alter that I brought home with me. 

I read 3 books, even though we were traveling.  I need to get back to work on my handwork.  I didn't touch my embroidery all month even though I worked so hard prepping stuff to take with me.

You still did heaps - love the idea of the shop name and location for the row quilt as it will make for memories later on.

For traveling over 8000 miles, you did pretty good in the stitching department.
