I'm chain piecing Bonnie Hunter's "Christmas Lights" quilt from Quiltmaker magazine. I have admired Bonnie's scrap quilts for a while and decided to jump in and make this quilt. I had parts of the blocks made from the July/August '09 issue and I just found the September/October '09 issue at JoAnn's .
I have the 12 star blocks finished and now I'm working on the 20 red blocks. I wonder how they're going to go together!
Here's the last Christmas Wish BOM from Gail Pan. I have lost track of how many of these there will be. I guess I'll find out soon!
I made 4 of these bags out of charm squares. We are going to participate in a craft show in September, so I need to get some merchandise ready!!
I am eager for summer to be over. I'm very tired of 100 degree weather. If we're still in Texas next summer, I don't think I will plant any flowers. What's the use! It is just too hot!

I'll try to be better about blogging. I just needed a little time off of blogging, but I still spent time reading many blogs and I love seeing everyone's beautiful projects!

We hadn't seen Jonah since December when he was 6 months old, so we made a weekend trip to see him and his Mommy, our DIL. He is 14 months old and has changed SO MUCH!!! What a cutie! His Daddy will be getting back from Iraq around the 20th of this month, so we will all be really happy when he is back home!
Jonah likes to read!
Here's block 7 of A Tisket A Tasket. I didn't sew on the buttons yet. I think I'll wait until after it is quilted. I'm going to wait until block 9 comes out and will do 8 & 9 at the same time. It seems easier to do 2 at once while I get out all the applique stuff.
This is the last stitchery from Willowberry Designs. I have really enjoyed doing these. Cheryl had a drawing and I won her pattern! It is so cute! Thanks, Cheryl for the special pattern! She is such a talented lady and I think she said she is going to have another BOM soon!
I love the BOMs, but maybe after this year, I will need to take some time off so I can get this year's put together! Hee Hee!
