Monday Making

The past week has been a productive one!
There are so many things that keep me busy around home.
I'm thankful for the activity ...productive activity....that fills my days!


I added vegetables from my husband's garden to every meal.
His hobby takes more time than MINE these days.
Haha.

I ran into an old quilt I had given away.
LOVE THIS one!

Those little 9 patches are 3".  They were tiny for me as a beginner when I made this.

I remember wanting to use that border fabric I found in the remnant section
and finding the scraps here to go with it.


I had this in my HAND MADE-finished-ready to gift drawer.
:)
There's a new baby boy in town that needs a little something!

I'm getting better and more confident at bread making!!
Yeah!!
It's always been a dream of mine to be a bread maker.
I think I'm THERE!
This recipe is ---
Julia Child's White Sandwich Bread.
It didn't disappoint.

I like to slice the bread and freeze it ----after we eat few slices, of course!!

I also hung some herbs to dry.
:)


What are You making this week??

Monday Making





I have been making 
CHRISTMAS IN JULY 
projects this week.
(less that 2")

I have made them before...but this time
I am adding the beads and pearls around the outside.
I think it adds some  **SPARKLE**

I also made a HOLIDAY HEXAGON.

I hope to get one more Christmas project done
before the month is up!!!

I've also been enjoying my husband's garden....
and....

 Knitting outside.

I am LOVING ALL THE GREEN!!!

Link up and share about what YOU are making!

After getting my snowball quilt basted....finally.....


...I began some hand quilting this week.
Yeah!!!

Getting all those ugly basting stitches in
takes time...
but it is SO worth it!

I am using Perle cotton....
And hoping to add another color or two as I go.
One snowball at a time!

I posted about basting and quilting this quilt on my you tube channel.

What are YOU making this week??

Monday Making

I have always wanted a patriotic quilt.
This is the next best thing.
A little quilty banner to hang by the front door.
:)

I decided this was good idea on July 3.
It was finished on July 4.

No time like the PRESENT....right?

I used lots of little leftovers
And had so much fun moving them
This way and THAT!



Then I decided to make a quilt flag for one of my boys.
He recently moved out....
And I thought he’d like a little something HOMEY to hang up.
He did!!!
Woo hoo!!!

The flag part is a panel.
All I had to do was add the half square triangles.

With no picnics or parties to attend....
I had LOTS of time to make these fun little banners.
What are YOU making this week???
