I'm late. Story of my life. I got completely wrapped up in sewing yesterday, and I'm pleased to say that, despite the little setback, I have gotten quite a bit done this past week.

Newbie Bee Blocks
In true late fashion, I finished my June bee blocks for the first-timer bee on June 27th. This month, Carol wanted some black and white blocks with solid color accents.

Memorial Quilts
Three finished. Three basted. Pretty darn good. I know I said these would be done by tomorrow, but seriously, I'm proud of myself for getting this far.

Kaleidoscope QA
AH! I'm already behind. I am printing the template as I type. The good news [and bad...I guess] is that I don't plan to budget for batting or backing until after Christmas, so I am concentrating on piecing tops for the rest of the year. So I've already taken myself out of the running for the end-of-QA giveaway.

That's all I've done. *brow wipe*

Have a safe and FUN 4th of July y'all!



  1. I love the little black/white/yellow block! So cool!

    And you can catch up on the kaleidoscope qal quickly. The cutting doesn't take much time, and the instructions she posted today don't look too time-consuming either.

  2. Lol..you're too funny!!! nice bee blocks btw. I really like them; so different...

  3. Hey, you're not late on bee blocks until midnight on the midnight on the first. : ) I just finished my last bee block today! Yours look great, BTW.

    But I do have a bone to pick with you, because I was trying to hit 100 link-ups this week, and guess what we got to? Yep, 99 links. Maybe next week! : ) Anyway, we missed you (and not just because of the 99/100 thing!)
