Cutting it close!

What a hectic month August has been and September is looking to be worse LOL!

For my finishes this month I have finished the embroidered wall-hanging for a friend. It was a lot of fun to do and I got to buy a staple gun!

In addition I have some pictures of my Mom in her dress that I finished a couple of days late last month.

She has worn it several times already and I am not tiring in my amazement that I made something my Mom is wearing LOL!

I also finished a 241 tote for a swap and I love it... the pattern is amazing easy and the finished bag has been one of my favourites for awhile. Mine has some piecing in the panels for interest.

So I did not finish my second August goal which is the serger cover. That is for this weekend and I am determined to have it done! At least I got one of my goals and several other things off my plate LOL!

I am linking up to Fiber of All Sorts.

Pattern designer extradonaire!

Ha ha... ok... not quite that exciting :) But I have just put my first paper piecing pattern up for sale. It is a block that I originally designed for quilts for the Boston bombing victims and that is why it is so named the Boston Block.

This is the arrangement I made the block in... it finishes at 12" finished.

This another way you can arrange it.

Hope you like it! (only $1.50) :)

August Goals

Yet again, here I am setting goals... I swear I wouldn't get anything done if it wasn't for this linky party LOL!

I *need* to get a sewing machine cover made plus some kind of extra for a swap... this is how I started it, but took it apart and am making the triangles match up instead.

As well, I need to finish a wall piece made of embroidery and or cross-stitch for another swap. This needs an extra as well... I don't have a picture yet, but you will see the finish at least in a month LOL!

Looking forward to seeing your goals :)
