A July List

Well... I had photos to go with this post but Blogger is not co-operating... so I will just go ahead and post a boring list with no exciting photos and hope that tomorrow I can get it to work - if at first you don't succeed, try, try again! Just so you guys don't think I've dropped off the face of the earth or anything.

What ever happened to July anyway? It is gone, that is for sure, but how did that happen?

A summary list (starting with finished items first and working down):

*I GAVE a quilt to one of my nieces! So, a finish (that would have been my photo, but maybe it deserves its very own post anyway!
*Made Little Boy his flannel PJ's
*Made Little Boy his train quilt
*Made a girlfriend a tank top - it is in the mail as I type! I thought it was really cute and I hope she likes it!

*Cut out 1 scrappy quilt for my winter sewing
*Got my green ocean waves top up to the borders stage
*Continued working on my Country Wife blocks (ugh!)
*Laid out my sampler blocks, found a few missing blocks - will work on this soon!

*Sewed some on my plaid ocean waves top (yes, I am making 2!)

And currently, I am busy making curtains and knitting a Booga bag.

That is just sewing wise. Most of my time is spent chasing a busy 3 year old and juggling everything else I have to do during my days. BUT - he does go to bed at 8:30... grin!

A nice list of achivements Evelyn.
It always is good to make a list, so we can see that all those small threads adds up, eh ? ;-)

That's awesome, considering that if I were looking after a 3 year old I would be dead beat by 8.30 and ready for bed myself.

That is quite a list of achievements - congrats to you. A busy mum and still time to be creative and productive. My hat is off to you :)

Wow-- what a list... good going.
With all the heat, I kicked around making a couple of tank tops...what did yours look like?
I love to see pictures of your work...

yes, we missed you, Evelyn and pics of that handsome little fellow and quilts or projects you are working on. You got a lot done this past month!

Someone commented that I'm busy but you have me beat easily and with a little one to keep up with too! I'm not sure where July went - lets hope August doesn't disappear the same way.
