Well, I didn’t manage to keep a list of blocks for June, either, so I’m pulling from my really poor memory to come up with the blocks I made this past month.
I went to a retreat, and several sew days, so I did get some sewing done. As usual, there are some blocks I won’t count until the project is finished, just so I don’t miscalculate and count them twice.
I also made 7 pillowcases, which don’t count. And a zipper pouch, which doesn’t count. But it’s cute, isn’t it? I used this tutorial HERE to make it, and I’ll be making several more in the future.
I’m working on Cake Mix blocks. These are from Recipe #3, but I’m not counting them until they’re done.
I AM counting this little wall quilt as my one block for June. I made this from my Out To Pasture pattern, as a commission piece for a customer.
And I’m doing some English paper piecing, but that’s slow going. It’ll be a long time before I can count any blocks from that!
So how did YOU do in June? Have you been out doing summer stuff and not getting much sewing done? Or are you staying inside to keep cool and getting a lot of sewing done? I find it goes back and forth for me, depending on the week!
Partly because I want to spend time outside with my goats when I can — we have some more new babies! This is Dahlia, and she thinks she is big stuff! She’s only 10 days old in this photo, and already able to jump up on top of the huts. It’s usually 3 weeks before they’re brave enough and strong enough to do that — and she’s so tiny, too — a real little spitfire!
Anyway, where was I? . . . See how easily I get distracted?
I have the Project page updated with all the current information, and July’s block goal, which is 36 blocks for a year-to-date total of 201.
May’s prize winner is Phillis, who is already up to a whopping total of 930 blocks for the year!
Please leave a comment or contact me to let us all know how you’ve done this month, and I’ll get those totals added in. I think we’re doing great for the year so far. Happy stitching to all of us in July — and have a fabulous Fourth of July holiday!
