Here we are in August already! How can that be?
It’s been 7 months, and I still haven’t had my cutting table completely cleared off once this entire year! This is STILL pretty much its current state — I leave myself one little clear corner to work on — pathetic! I think I need to issue another organizing challenge soon.
All my sewing this past month was “secret sewing”. I’ve been working really hard on the new Block-of-the-Month quilts for Sew Sweet Quilt Shop, and I can’t wait to get to show them to you! The big reveal is August 11th, so if you can’t make it to the shop that day, I’ll be posting pictures here for you to see.
Meanwhile, here’s a sneak peek of this year’s color options . . .
The traditional colorway, blues and creams this year — so calm and lovely:
And the modern colorway, brights with an eye-popping accent of black — it’s happy-yummy!
So that boosted my total this month to 85 blocks. How did you do?
I hope you all got a lot of blocks made this month. Leave a comment on this post to tell us what you were up to in July, and how many blocks you got made! Check the Project Page to make sure I have your totals correct, and to see how everyone else is doing — I think as a group we’re really doing well so far this year!
Our new goal for August is 31 blocks, for a year-to-date total of 232. That’s one block a day, if we can swing it!
The June prize winner is Randy. She’s up to 358 blocks so far this year! She’s past the 350 point, so now she can cruise easy the rest of the year.
August is shaping up to be super busy for me, but I’m still hoping for lots of time at my sewing machine. How about you?
