LOT OF THINGS GOING ON

I have a lot of projects going on right now I finished my February block for the Quilter's Blessings block of the month hosted by Bea at Capricorn Quilts. This is the one project I can show.

I am also working on right now an RR Bloggers
round robin, which I can't show, the final result, after an eventual 15 month tour is a surprise to the block owner.




I am also beginning work on a purse entry for the CQ International purse contest, which will have to be a secret until after that is over.

Last, but not least, my youngest daughter Katie will be getting married August 10, 2008, and we have made arrangements for the place, the luncheon I will be doing mostly doing myself. Katie wants to wear my old veil that I made in 1971. It had something called a "Juliet cap" which does not fit Katie right. So I am going to revise that veil. Will have to take a picture before I take it apart and shorten it. For that veil, I hand cut scallops from some of the lace I used in the dress and appliqued it to the veil. I was pretty impressed looking at it again after all these years of what I accomplished when I was 21 years old.

Your stitchery block is very lovely. Oh, and I'm very anxious to see your purse! Good luck on the contest!

Two down! You are so fast. With the hours you work, too, I'm amazed by all you get done. More than I do, and I don't have a job at all!

You are going to be even busier between now and August, too.
