In spite of a half-crazy work month I did manage to make decent progress on my August OMG project, Hazel’s Diary, even though I didn’t get my post added in time to link up. I finished center block, added “block two” (pieced borders) and got a good start on the appliqué. I will be taking this project with me to Baltimore on the Prairie next week, hoping to finish the rest of the block two appliqué and perhaps get a start on block three.
I was able to spend a little time at the machine and finished week two of the pieced summer BOW. Some of the gray star fabrics don’t have the best contrast but I figure that won’t be too noticeable when all 240 of them together. So 40 down, 200 remaining. Sigh!
I am still keeping up with my log cabin blocks. I’m not sure what month this is but my stack is growing. I can’t wait to put this quilt together. I’ve always wanted to do a log cabin - I have no idea why it’s taken me this long to start one!
I’m off to Nebraska next week for four uninterrupted days of stitching. I spent a good part of the Labor Day weekend prepping projects to take with me and already have enough to last several weeks. I know I won’t run out of things to do!
