Harry Potter on Friday... fabulous, simply fabulous :)
A sunny trip to the Philadelphia Zoo on Saturday - complete with a camel ride!
And then ofcourse... we can't forget about the sewing! Are you ready for a weekly update? Here we go:
1. Kaleidescope QAL:
I was able to get all of my small and large triangles sewn together - or atleast 100 out of 120, still waiting on my FQs to come in the mail to make up for my cutting accident. I also started sewing on the grey triangles and completed around 40 of those - hoping to finish those tonight but the rest still need cut so it probably isn't going to happen.
I'm way behind on this QAL... I don't think I'll make the August 4th deadline. If I don't have my quilt top finished by the end of the week, its probably going in the "to be quilted" pile whenever it does get done and won't be a priority... sad, but that's life :-p So let's all hope I get the top done this week and stay motivated to finish this beauty!
2. We Can Do It! - Skill Builder Sampler:
Block #4 - I've named it "Lilly Pads" - because that is what my pinwheels remind me of :)
3. A Zig & A Zag QAL:
No update - it still looks all pretty in strips like this and is waiting for me to get those strips sewn together!
4. 4 x5 Modern Bee on Flikr
Here is my practice block for my Hive in my colors - Aqua, Orange, Grey
Crazy Block by Aneela Hoey
2 of my bee hive members have the same colors so one of them may get this block, but maybe not... look at that dorable hippo in the middle, how can I give him away? hehe
A few QAL's have been stalled or given up... still hoping to do the Farmer's Wife Sampler at some point but I need to finish a few more of these projects first.
Also waiting on my "For the love of solids" partner which should arrive in August - because I'm pathetic and could not resist signing up last week haha.
More to come later this week if I get some sewing time in, stay tuned!
