July 4th

Happy July 4th for those in the US who celebrate

I have had a productive July so far........

I saw inspiration in this UFO block
I had made it "just because" one day

so I grabbed some scrap batting and sewed it to make a piece 
large enough
found some backing and simply quilted it
first in the ditch
then diagonal for a little fun

see the backing? a cute batik piece that was in the
stash all alone.......

then I grabbed my pieces of binding
and found one that would work
this is a scrap project from the start
and all pieces were basically 'sitting there
waiting for me"

sewed pieces of velcro inside to help close it
when full
and voila~
a cute little easy bag
 a UFO block
scrap batting
leftover binding and velcro piece that was a little
over an inch long
(I KNOW. I am a packrat)
BUT lookie how cute this turned out!

and while I was on a roll I added binding
to the black and white mugrug
to give to my niece for her boss
she had brought one in that I had made her for her desk
and her boss commented on it
so I made one for her boss
and the deer one is now bound as well

THREE little projects
for July
hope your fourth is FUN

we are having a clamboil with Jacky and 
her hubs and another neighbor

how fun to set up the screen room
while watching the birds in the early am-
now we are
all spiffed up and ready for my guests

even my elephant is waiting

I set up the croquet set for fun
so it should be a great day

gonna read the rules so no one cheats! 

wanna join us?
