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.....


  1. Love the baskets, that one will be finished soon! Enjoy your long weekend.

  2. What a merry mix of designs going on! Fun to see whatcha doin'.

  3. I wish handwork kept me from snacking. : )
    Fun projects going on.
