hand work projects

in between quilting and sewing on the machine, i enjoy doing hand work projects, which keep my hands occupied from snacking while watching TV or videos!  these are 3 that are currently in progress.  i have posted them on my design wall to remind me to keep going on them.  only the blocks are a UFO project, the others are not yet UFOs as i started them this year.  today, though, i'm sewing on the machine after clearing the decks in the sewing area, a perpetual task.  **** as birthday week draws to a close and summer is also beginning to wane, i'm thinking ahead to retreat and getting back to big quilts.  last night, though, i got an eyeful of the "blue moon," so called because it's the second full moon of august and only happens, well, once in a blue moon!  today is a decidedly summer day with temps near 90, so maybe some beach time is on?  we'll see.....
