The holiday not only makes me think of all those who serve our country and gave their lives for our freedom. There is always a moment of silence in my house to remember and give thanks.
July also make me think of CHRISTMAS..........yes I said it, Christmas in July. The time when most crafters start holiday projects. I have a few in mind but have not even thought about getting them started. While my oldest son was in the hospital (the second time) I picked up yarn and needle again as quilting projects are just too cumbersome in a hospital room. I completed an afgan for Shaylie Jo and started another large adult size cream colored afghan. No idea how big it will be or who it will be for. I think Ed's girlfriend Amanda was hinting that she would like to have it. Does this mean I need to make two more for the Sheena and Kristin? Probably :-)
Anyway, I started my fall quilt. My goal is a quilt for every season to cover my bed. I got one whole block done today...yeah!! The pictures below are of the one block I completed as well as a picture from the pattern as to what the blocks will look like. It will take 4 of the block I made to make one large block. I am using scrappy batiks and a controled smooth creamy white background.
