Fresh Sewing Day
July was a busy month with visitors and keeping control of the garden, and everything it's producing, but even so I made some good progress during the month
I managed to finish the Terraced Garden top (a quilt formerly know as stained). I'm now stalled again for a little while due to lack of supplies. I also managed a block for my Stitch Tease buddy Katy, although I can't show more than a blurred photo to keep it a sectret. I had a fantastic weekend sewing with my SIL and we managed to get a quilt made as far as the quilting stage. .......to be continued at the end of August when she comes again. And then I also finished the blocks for the supernova quilt which looks fantastic, but I need to see it on the bed it is made for before working out how to finish it.
I met my on-line friend Di, randomthoughtsdoordi, in Vienna and of course we exchanged purses we had made for each other. Following on from the Fat Quarterly retreat, Helen, runquiltknitwrite, and I have started a new bee. Blogged here. I have been plugging away at the snowball blocks. I have 3 but one I really don't like very much!.
And finally, the garden has started to produce it bounty, so I am pickling, roasting, stewing and freezing like a mad woman!
I think this has probably been one of my most productive months ever, sewing wise, so I thought I'd link it up with Fresh sewing Day at Lily's quilts.
