Weekly Report.

Nearly Insane Block 26.
Above is my Country Calendar for August.
I finally took my embroidery unit out of the box and tried it out, thanks to Betsy. I had a blue towel that I bought last spring so I made this bunny towel for Easter. This was so fun to make that I ran out and bought 2 orange towels that I will embroider on next weekend.







I made this quilted tote with charms that I had on hand. It will be great to tote projects to quilt class.


Next week I am hoping to show an actual quilt finish. (crossing fingers)

I hope everyone has a healthy and happy week.

I don't know how you do it. Crazy!!! And everything is just lovely. I especially love that little charm tote bag. I needs to make me one of those. It would be so handy.

Sending you lots of positive finish-it-up thoughts! :)

Yippee - you DID do some embroidery. I'm so happy you took the plunge. You are doing great with your 830.

I'm getting myself back into the world of blogging - have missed you terribly - please know you have been thought of - with a smile on my face.

I'm alive, I'm here - and I'm BACK!!!
