Time for Some Slow Stitching

Sunday presented some time for a little slow stitching for a change. Between putting up veggies and car pooling Macy about town for a couple of hours, I was able to start work on circle number six of the Fussy Cut Friday EPP'ed six pointed star circles. You are actually able to sort of see where this project is going now.  Still lots of work left.

I am also working on the FQS Mystery Designer BOM. Haven't done this month's block, but have been working steadily (sort of) on the setting. As someone else mentioned, it would be a challenge to wait until the end to start assembling them. 

This one has the first two rounds. I really like has over 300 flying geese. Yes, that is right. They are made using Eleanor Burns' flying geese ruler. It was my first time using this method. They came out extremely accurate, but the process is a bit tedious.

This sweet girl, who is beautiful inside and out, celebrated her sweet 16th last week.

And these guys loved the UGA game Saturday night. Go Dawgs!!!

The Estes family really needs your prayers as Rob's disease progresses and they are faced with difficult decisions.

Sound familiar??

Take Care,

A Month

It is hard to believe it has been a month since I posted last. Admittedly, I haven't accomplished as much as I would have liked, but every little bit counts. I have spent a fair amount of time working on our upcoming plant sale and other Master Gardener activities....and there is always family.

I now have all of the colors I plan to use on the Homespun Medallion worked in. 

I really like how this is coming along. Now it's a matter of balancing the colors.

Lady of the Lakes is coming along.

I thought I had finished all of the blocks, but when I laid them out, I realized I needed 18, not 12. These are the fabrics I chose for the final six...

We celebrated Rob's birthday the last of August.

The Force won their first tournament of the Fall season.

Counting pollinators for UGA...
