Rainbow Blocks

The colors are really off on these. I had to use my phone to take the pictures again this week due to computer issues. I have resolved my issues and hopefully next week will have better images.

These are the final 2 Rainbow Jane blocks that I had to make for August. Next weekend I hope to have time to put them together.

That was all I had time to do this weekend. I am hoping with a 4 day weekend coming up that I will be able to really catch up on some UFO's.

More Rainbows another Insane and a stitchery

This insane block wasn't too bad. I was warned that the next one will be a doozy. YIKES!

My laptop crashed and I haven't re-loaded my photoshop yet so my images haven't been cropped. I didn't want to re-load all my software until I am sure this windows setup is stable. I need to get a card reader for my new Mac so I can just do it from there. I love my Imac! As soon as this laptop takes its final breath, a new Macbook will find its way to me. :)
I need to re-do those melons. I just didn't have it in me this weekend. I was starting to get Jane'd out. I think it is time to knock out an easy quilt.
This is a little "Bareroots" stitchery for September. I did this a few weeks ago but was waiting for my personal binder to finish it. ;)

Rainbow Jane, Insane, Angel Story and a Finish!

My mother (my personal binder) finished my "Midnight Garden" quilt this week. I was able to get the quilting done on my vacation. It was so much easier using my new machine.
This is month 10 on my "Angel's Story" quilt. I think this is going to be adorable when it is finished.
This is my weekly "Nearly Insane" block. I get dizzy looking at it. LOL!
I received my "Rainbow Jane" package Thursday so I got started right away. I was able to knock out 5 of them this weekend.

I also started another embroidery project but it is still too early to share any pictures. ;)

I hope everyone has a happy, healthy week.

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.

Catching up!

Here are the last 2 wool blocks that I finished. I am now all caught up and will await the next BOM shipment.

I was also able to finish the July & August "Home Is Where The Heart Is" BOM. I decided to make these wall hangings. Now I have to find time to quilt these so I can hang them up monthly next year.

I forgot to post my July "Country Calendar" wall hanging. I think August's block posted today so I better get on that ASAP.
The next 4 are my Nearly Insane blocks. I vow to NEVER get that far behind again.
