MAKING PROGRESS

I was able to spend some quality time at the sewing machine today.  I finished my first project for the blog hop coming in September

You know I hate keeping secrets so I'll give you just a hint of what it is.  Do you remember this lone star I worked on at retreat?


And do you remember the blocks I've been making for the Quilted Angels Online Club Challenge?  Here are the last two


So is that enough of a teaser for you for the first project?  The top is complete and ready to be quilted as soon as I get home.

I even have the binding ready.

And I cut up all the scraps.  You know the ones left over when you miter a corner.

I wish I would take the time to do this every time I finish a project.  I wouldn't end up with a box of scraps if I did.  I cut them into 2 1/2" x 6 1/2" rectangles, 3 1/2" squares, 2 1/2" squares, 2" squares, 1 1/2" squares, and 2 1/2" x 1 1/2" rectangles.  

I also made the blocks for this month for the Log Cabin Houses BOM.  I'm so proud of myself for keeping up so far.  I'm also getting excited about putting these together.  I can hardly wait to get all the months.  

And look who was cooking breakfast this morning.  Grandma had some pretty good help.  She's an expert egg cracker; Raleigh that is.  Well, Grandma is too but she's had years of experience.  She even has advise for Grandma about how to cook the bacon too.  She didn't want Nana to take her picture so thus the funny face.  I'm lovin every minute with this precious funny face girl and her sweet baby brother and their beautiful momma.
