I was determined to finish up my July block yesterday so I could move on to August.  I need to piece that today before going back to work tomorrow.  My stitching time is generally early in the morning when I get up, until I go to work.  They I generally take something to work at on lunch break.  By the time I get home I am usually worn out and stitching is the furthest thing from my mind.  This block features some of Cathy 
Kizerian's hand-dyed lace at the top and some more of Nicki Lee's hand-dyed lace in the corner, the flowers in a pot.

I took my granddaughter and Marine, the French foreign exchange student staying with them for 3 weeks to lunch at Cheesecake Factory.  We had a great time, though the service was not that great this time. I was showing my daughter Kristen how to take a picture with my I-pad when she snapped the crazy picture of Kyleigh by accident, and it is priceless!

Well better get off the computer and sewing as I have a busy day.  Also need to get the house cleaned today!


  1. Hi Karrin I have to get busy and get more stitching under my belt. Your work is beautiful and so inspiring. xoxoxo

  2. Hey Karrin, 3 purses....that's amazing. I just love the photo of your GD with her new purse!! So sweet and I know she is going to cherish it forever! Just wanted to ask, where are you getting the clasp from? I found some at Joann's but they are very plain and not very pretty like the one I got from Pat. Have a great day and happy stitching! :)

  3. What a beautiful July CQ piece you've made. The colours and stitches look wonderful!
