What a day. I'm beat. Who knew a person could sew so much in one weekend? This competition is stiff!!

Let's see, I finished the 16 log cabin blocks which were assigned for ONE MONTH of our BOM. Honestly, I'm glad I was only like four months behind, had I first jumped in a few months from now I'd probably just say forget it. I have another baggie to do yet. I believe it's for 4 of the same block.

I really chose a HORRIBLE navy fabric. It's very, very stretchy. Oh well. Here's my blocks:


Then I did the center medallion block:


I laid some of the blocks out the way they will be sewn together. It looks realy sharp.


This apron is called Flirty Skirty. I'm making it for my friend Chelsey. I still need to add the ties and pockets.


Isn't that rick rack just adorable? It's jumbo sized!!

I'm's time for bed!!

7 Hours Completed at time of Entry.
39.75 Total hours for the month of July.

That navy may be a pain to work with, but the blocks and layout are really sharp! I can't wait to see what else you have to make for it! Love the skirt!

Sewing is tiring especially when you're not used to sewing for long periods of time. I got tons done sewing with you but I'm tired.
