August ALOYF Finish

This month's goal was a little self-indulgence.  Like I said in my goal post, I've had the fabric and been meaning to get to this little project for two school years now.

Follow the Virtuous Road

Yesterday I picked up Sarah from Girl's Camp.  This was her first year and I was so excited to make her little gifts each day.  (Our Stake has a volunteer who collects "mail" and delivers it each day; the only restriction is that whatever we send has to fit inside a manila mailer.)

August ALOYF Goal

I had a tiny bit of trouble deciding what to make for this month's goal, but I finally settled on this stash ... back-to-school thoughts inspired me =)

I bought these fabrics two years ago with the intention of making a lunchbox for myself.  I think its high time to cross this project off my list.  I might even be able to make a couple ...

Calming August Stash Bee Block

This month Carla is our queen bee and asked for these low-volume blocks with pinwheels randomly placed throughout.  I had quite a time pulling out all different prints.  There's a lot of sand in there =)

July ALOYF Finish

This month I finished my Scrappy Churn Dash quilt top.  For some reason, this just wanted to frustrate me at every turn.

July Stash Bee Blocks

I made these blocks a couple of years ago for Stash Bee, so I was excited to revisit these birds.  Mary asked for some personalization so it was a little different this time around.  I actually made 2 blocks again because I realized my first one didn't meet her request for bright, large scale printed wings.  So, without further ado ...

Crayon Box Quilt Studio

Last month I signed up for this charm swap through Michele at Crayon Box Quilt Studio.  This is the 3rd swap I've done through Michele and I know that she is so personable and efficient.

July ALOYF Goal

I thought I'd miss this month since I was at a family reunion with ALL my sisters and their kiddos, but I got back just in time to post =)  My July goal is to finish the blocks for and assemble my scrappy churn dash quilt.

SOSM II, Please

This is a quick post that doubles as my entry to the Super Online Sewing Match that's on over at Sew Mama Sew.  Their first bout was a couple of years ago, which I watched from the sidelines: I was sure I could never sew like that.  I was surprised at how inspired I was by each contestant!  Such great talent and so much growth with each challenge.

June ALOYF Finish

This month I knew I had to get done a little early.  Soon I'll be out of town enjoying some sister time!
