I made the July deadline for the Patience block of the Sheep Virtues. I already have the August block done so I'm taking a break from it this month.
Mr. Suffolk is also done. Mr. Jacob is next up but he's is being put on hold until September too. I'm a wee bit tired of sheepies.
In August I will be putting some foliage in my little garden.
And a few sails on my Tall Ship.
I also hope to get to Spiral Chicken. She's been gathering dust thanks to the World Cup and the Tour. August will be all hers. She needs her beak and her comb.
I finished another block for Dear Jane this month too.
It had to be appliqued down so it was the first one to have it's papers removed. It was scary.
I have two more blocks to finish and then I will be in Row C. I hope we get away from those curved pieces. I hate them.
Speaking of blocks, this is as far as I have gotten with the mini quilt. Picking out the awful free motion stitching on the Thangles quilt is using up my free sewing time and I'm just fine with that. Somehow ripping stuff out feels better than putting stuff together right now. It's the dog days. I hate August.
I also want to thank Kathy B and Karen for the lovely surprises that I found in the mailbox today. Those Christmas goodies were just what I needed to get over my hot weather funk and that shawl would be perfect for a box of orphan Knit Picks yarn I found during a fiber closet de-stash after the Tour. Details to follow.
