Two Posts in One Day!

2 Posts in 1 day!  I think that deserves a double rainbow picture I took about a week ago.  The reason for the second post...I just had to share that I finished my purse today!  Wahoo.

I am not sure what I will do with it.  It isn't really my style but hey I made a purse and it is cute.  Does anyone else make things without an idea of how to use it.  My husband sarcastically told me to put lipstick, a wallet, etc inside it.  Thanks honey, but it doesn't match anything I own.  Ah well.

Late August - Catching Up Slowly

Admittedly, it has been awhile.  I have been working on things but very VERY slowly.  July I took a vacation from my projects to start on a quilt for my niece who was visiting.  It uses the Riley Blake Apple of My Eye collection.  I just love it!  I was teaching my niece how to cut, piece, and quilt.  I will be able to show off pictures of our project soon. 

I finished sewing the binding on my garden fence quilt the other night and am happy to say it is 100% finished now.  It will be headed off to my nephew soon.

I have continued to work on my Half Square Triangles for the Block of the Month thing over at In Color Order.  Below is July and August will be up soon.

I got together with Carrie from Believe Magic and stitched our quilt guilds charity quilt. I managed to contribute 3 blocks!  Yay!  She is super fast at sewing and so patient with me. *Carrie took the picture of the photo below*

Last but not least.  Our modern quilt guild has decided to do some Bee Blocks.  My month was this one and I chose a half-square triangle block that was featured on SewMamaSew awhile back (with a few modifications).  Here is one of the blocks I made.

I am keeping this one all to myself.  I have yet to make myself a quilt and decided it is about time.  I can't wait to see all of the other blocks.  I have been having fun finding all of my favorite fabrics and scraps for these blocks. I hope you all are finding time to fit in sewing.  Will share more soon.
