Let Freedom Ring

Happy 4th everyone!

I started the day with a little sewing.
Such a simple project.
I'm going to enjoy it ALL week!

Pattern found here.
Holiday Hexagons are not ONLY for Christmas.

Freedom Quilt

Putting these blocks together is the PERFECT way (I think)
to celebrate this time of year here in the U.S.

Thanks to everyone who sent blocks to be included.
MOST of the blocks are here......
There are a few more that will be puzzled into a SECOND quilt!
They will be quilted and bound
and then sent off to the wounded warrior project.

Isn't it beautiful???
I love it!

and having some FUN!

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?
