Oh my goodness it's been such a buys summer. Just a whirlwind of activity. It's hard to believe that we are moving are youngest daughter to Maryland in less than 2 weeks. Work has been crazy too. If you've left comments on my blog, thank you so much. I do love hearing from you and I try very very hard to respond to all comments, even if it's a month late :( I'll have a 12 hour ride out to the east coast, plenty of time to respond, please forgive my tardiness. In spite of all that is going on (someone tell me that June is NOT 3/4 over - shoot where did it go?) I did get a bit of sewing done. I'm making great progress on Black Sea. I have 5 grand blocks done and the next log placed on all the log cabins, ready for some chain stitching.
I also got a bit of work done on Old Friends BOM. I was so proud of myself working ahead, figuring out those nine patch blocks. I have all 80 of them done. Then was so excited to get the first of the nine patch nine patch blocks (there's gotta be a better name). Seriously it wasn't until I ironed that block that I thought, uh oh somethings not right here. What was I thinking??????? Oh boy, I know have 80 really cute itty bitty nine patches. And 80 larger nine patch that I have to make. So I'm just thinking, I'm not further behind. I'm certain I"ll find something to do with those cute little nine patches (let me know if you have any ideas) and I'm really further along in another quilt that I really new :)
Linking up with some really great linky parties on the side bar. Stop by and be ready to be inspired.
