August Already?!?

Phew, I finished ring number nine on my hexagon scrap quilt. As you can see, I am quite pleased with it ;-)

In my pattern of light/medium/light/medium/light/dark, I need a ring of lights next. I will need 60 of these, so time to get basting. But before I start that I must attend to some other stuff, like:

  • finishing sewing the binding on George's quiltquilted
  • making some Christmas presents ( I shamefully didn't manage to get a thing made in July for Allie's Christmas Through the Year challenge)
  • getting Waif's quilt layered and basted ready to quiltFenced In
So I am going to be a good girl and do these things before I start on the next round!

I will, of course, be continuing with my good things journal:

And, eek, it's two thirds of the way thru the ICAD Challenge:

And the, on the 13th August, there's the small matter of the Festival of Quilts.Woooooohooooooooo! Excited, me??!  Ooh, no, I am very composed.


  1. Have fun at the FoQ and make sure you grab a 10% voucher for Mandy's stall and go and say hi to her! (see my blog about a week or ten days ago for the voucher if you haven't grabbed it already)

  2. Goodness me. What a list! I'd sit quietly with George's quilt and do some gentle sewing. Enjoy the FoQ. Wish I was coming with you.

    BTW - proposed Norfolk visit is off (sniff).

  3. Love your hexagon quilt start. Can't imagine the patience that it takes to sew all those together. Wowza.
