Stitching along...

...looks like allot of yellow but it is not really. These blocks will be surrounded by blue.

The only thing that slows me down is I have to many ideas. I am sticking to the original one but it's not easy. I love improvising. I have stopped a few times to jot down the other ideas for future use.

Gonna take a break and go out with my family for the rest of the day. Hope all of you are having a great weekend!

Charming Girls & Guys Quilt Club July/Aug.

Thanks to Kelly of Charming Chatter for hosting another year of CG&GQC. This year things will be slightly different. Please check out what's new here.

The theme for July/August is Self-Care. We are sharing how we will care for ourselves. I like the idea. I know many of us do not put a priority on taking care of ourselves. I am guilty of self neglect. I am the only girl in my house and often forget to have girly time. So for this month I will spend a little extra time on my self. I am also working toward being more healthy. I have a goal to participate in a run/walk across the San Diego/Coronado Bay Bridge next Spring. I made plans with my family to participate, so I need to prepare myself. I am not sure I can run but I will do my best to keep up.

For my sewing goal this month I will finish and send my Big Brother his camp quilt. I am very happy to have the opportunity to make this for him. I can't even think of what comes after this project. I will have to post that after I am done with this one.
