The Final Week in July. . . .the big move!

So, last week was the official move from an apartment to a large house!  While we are all moved out, we are still a little ways from moving in :)  Realizing we just have too much and weeding it down is time consuming.  That includes my sewing stuff.  Hoping for a little relief this weekend.

I could show pictures of my studio now, but it's not quite ready or organize to do so.  But I can show some of the things I have sew in between the few spare minutes of "me" time over the past month.

First, my finish challenge for my Modern Quilt Guild....ok, let me state just the top is complete.  We had to use ALL 40 charms in a Kona Classic charm pack and allowing for only one other fabric to work with.  Well, loving that tasseling new notion, I used it - it will work out perfectly as a bed runner:

Then, I've done several blocks for my Let's Be Together group:

And finished sewing 2 valances, one for our main bathroom and one for my kitchen....the crabs are gray/blue, that's the theme for the kitchen and the lighthouses/beach is the theme for the bathroom:

And that is about it....we are pretty much caught up....I also received my August towel from Jeanette:
I'm hoping to get more of my studio organized and finish up some class samples this weekend.

Enjoy your weekend everyone!


  1. You have been a busy girl...all this and moving too!

  2. You sure got a lot of stuff done in your few minutes of "me time"! Your valances look nice - not to mention the lovely, leafy view out of the windows :D
    Your challenge quilt is wonderful - the black background really makes the colors pop, doesn't it?

    Have a great weekend!

  3. Wow! That was truly some July! Congrats on the new home and all of the other fabulous blessings. :) Your challenge quilt turned out so cool!

  4. Sounds like me....I always down size after we move. I think I am supposed to get rid of things before I pack them but oh well. Love the chili pepper block.
