I have 6 days including today. Aaaahhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!! The good news is Joy will be here on Saturday and she will motivate me. We will not move out of the sewing room for two days. Well maybe long enough for the season finale of Bones, but I will be stitching down the binding by then right? Right!!! Strangely enough I still like challenges. OK back to work, A-

I finished the center piece for Debbie Mumm Christmas Wishes. Hmmm I see a wish theme happening. I wish I could get finished????
Now it is time for sleeping. I am really, really, really going to try to get the top all put together tomorrow. Really, really!!!!

I still have to put these cute little heart buttons on the basket...and do the stitching around the leaves, but I have decided to leave that for TV time and start working on the gazillion half square triangles in the next block. I have four blocks left to do and the large Christmas flower in the center. I can do this!!! As long as I don't get distracted by the other gazillion projects I have going. Must put my blinders on. And on that note I should get back to work. Hope everyone has had a great day!! A-

I have lots of little two inch squares cut out for baskets. It was easier to decide which ones looked good when I had lots to choose from. Besides they will all get used eventually. This batch will soon be a simple version of the basket from Pink Penquin. I am still playing at this point, but I will stop thinking and start sewing soon.
And this one will have the cute little stithery patterns that Cheryl from Willowberry Designs created. It will take me a bit longer to finish with all those cute little designs but I will get there.
Since I was at one with the rotary cutter, I also cut out the next four blocks in the Debbie Mumm Christmas Wishes from 2008. I really do have far too many things going at the same time, but at least I won't get bored! I hope!! I have finished sewing blocks 1-5 and 6-9 are ready to go. No excuses!! This not one of the projects I plan on finishing for Di's challenge. It would be a nice thought, but I am not that fast and obviously I get distracted. I am going to set my own challenge and try to get it done by Christmas. Should be doable. On that note I suppose I should start turning all these little pieces into finished projects. It is cloudy and rainy outside--the perfect day for hiding and sewing. Hopefully I can get lots done. Hopefully everyone else out there will too. A-

I am so impressed with myself. I have finished a Christmas project and it is only the 8th of August. Hopefully this is a good sign and I will get at least two more done this month and successfully complete Di's challenge.
I made two each of three different designs.
Not sure what I will do next. Possibly a little basket like the one Cheryl at Willowberry Designs made. I have made the basket before in purple, but it is really cute with her little stitchery designs incorporated into it. We shall see how quick I am at stitching. In the meantime I must work on some of my BOMs. Must catch up!!! So back to work! Hope everyone is having a great weekend and getting lots of sewing done. A-

I found these cute little coasters in a copy of Handmade and thought they would make great use of these little trees. So I have them all cut out and will get busy on them soon. I have also started on my list of BOMs that I am behind on. I am working on Debbie Mumm's Natural Wonders right at the moment. June is done and July is cut out. I would love to get caught up on all of them. So here is June and all the rest. Hopefully I will be able to pop up July and August soon.
These have taken me out of my comfort zone sometimes. All the little triangles and matching bits and tiny applique, but it has been fun. I still have most of my hair, even if it is a little grayer. That could just be from the inspector lady!!!!! OK, a little more scrubbing and a whole bunch more sewing!! Later, A-
