#56 Finally Summer has Arrived!!

I am so glad that the good weather has finally arrived!! This week, along with sewing, I hope to get out in my flower bed. They are looking sad and neglected. We have had so much rain and cold damp weather, it is nice to see the sun!!

Had a blast today, enjoying that sun. Went for a walk and then had an adventure driving the new side by side. If you listen closely you can hear me scream, lol, before my daughter screams for me!! 

And then are son-in-law and daughter followed on the 4 Wheeler!!

What I've Been up to:

Finished a few more pouches

Finished all the Tiny Mini Pouches!Original pattern can be found here, at So Sew Easy. There were 3 sizes, 3 about the size of an eraser,  working zipper and all! And another group about 2"x 2" and the ones pictured below.

Completed one of 25 Diamond EPP Hexi:
 Started on the June blocks for Modern InstaBee: Different layout options for the Triple Star
 and have finally started piecing my Churn Dash Sew Along together!! Greens and Whites!! Excited about this one!!


(Hopefully will be starting a new list soon, and this one will be history!!)

1.. Scrappy Trip Around the R4 (still waiting for 3 1 blocks from this round!)i've heard it is on the way!!

2. Modern Insta Bee (Feb, MarAprMay, June, July, Aug, Sept, Oct, Nov, Dec, Jan)

3. Diamond Tread Quilt (sew sides to tread pattern to complete the top)

4. Part 2 of Mini Medallion

5. Cut the Churn Dash Sew Along pieces, (starting to piece blocks)(4/48)

6. Quilt the Michael Miller fabric challenge wall hanging

7. 4-6 Scrappy Trip Around the World Blocks (2 for a friend)


  1. Really? I want to know how you work this all in in a week?!? Love all the mini pouhes,too. I have a couple pouches ready to sew sitting in one of the lovely crochet bins you made for me!!

  2. Sounds like you are having some fun amidst all the work you are doing!! Amazing number of pouches - you were really on a roll!

  3. Love all of your little pouches and your EPP diamond. Looking forward to seeing your EPP diamond project as it progresses.

    Can you please tell me where I can get a pattern for the mini pouch with the key ring attached (the one that's about the size of an eraser)?

  4. Those key pouches are delightful. Did you design them yourself, or could you point me towards the pattern? I like the idea you have of making the churn dash blocks in positive / negative pairs. A whole quilt mad up of such blocks is going to be real fun.

    I hope the scream was because you got wet, and not because you got injured.

  5. I just can't get over those mini pouches! So dang cute, but I don't know if I would have the patience! And your star blocks are looking fantastic!


Thanks for stopping by!! I would love to hear from you, so please leave a comment, idea, or question!!
