Too Many?

This pile began innocently enough.
It began with 2 crocheted afghans
made by my Grandma.
That bright PINK one is probably 40 years old.
They NEVER wear out...
and I USE them!!!

I've added a couple found at thrift stores.
I even MADE one!!!

I've become a COLLECTOR.

I think I'm at my LIMIT.
Sure HOPE I can say NO to the
future crocheted afghans I'll see
hanging in the thrift shop!!!

I know I'll see more......

Our Collaborative quilt top
It also changes every day
as I lay the blocks out.

It's SO fun playing with blocks!

Thanks to everyone participating
in this JOINT effort
for The Wounded Warrior project!

It's going to be a WONDERFUL quilt!
(or quilts??)

One more day of mail collection...
and I'll start sewing some SEAMS!

Here's the link to the original request for blocks.
Let's make a QUILT.

Monday Making

And it's SUMMERtime!

There isn't quite as much time to MAKE...
but I'm going to squeeze in as much as possible.

I have a few squares cut
and I'm going to make a SIMPLE quilt of squares.
I can't wait to get all this color together!

What are you up to??

Friday Finish

Another little zipper bag.
I just can't seem to STOP making them.
Part of it is wanting to enjoy
and USE the little pieces of vintage linens
that come my way.

I don't like them stored away!
I want to SEE and enjoy them.

Little bags are so practical!


I had a commentor mention
these little things are called purses where she lives.
What are they called at YOUR house?

I've been doing some SLOW stitching.
This little applique project gets pulled out once in a while
and I add a few more leaves.
THIS time....
I'm going to try and stick WITH it
and get ALL the blocks done.
That's the goal....We'll see what happens.

I've also been getting some stars in the mail.
THANK YOU for your help
I'll wait for a few more patriotic blocks before piecing them together.

They are going to feel RIGHT at home in this quilt
being donated to the wounded warriors project.

I participated in a FUN trade a couple of weeks ago.
I sent a little zipper bag....

and received this cute little pouch in return!!!
Thank you Brenda!!

Happy sewing friends!!!

Monday Making

I'm not sure what I'll be making this week...
NOT at this point.

I've been busy cleaning out a relatives home......
Running into OLD, old projects of mine.

Quilts and things made WAY before I knew what I was doing!
I SURE had fun making them though!!!

I know I'll also be sitting outside some this week watching.

Watching My husband MAKE something!!!

Garden beds for LOTS more vegetables!!
Right now his vegetable garden keeps me BUSY in the kitchen
as I'm always adding it to our dinners!
There are MANY ways to add zucchini and celery into the main course!
These larger beds will either increase my creative work with zucchini...
or possibly give me more variety in the vegetable selection!!!

What will you be Making this week???

Link up and share.
