my secret sewing is finished!  all that's left to do is organize the photos and i'll be ready for christmas in july!  you may have guessed that i've been asked to participate in sarah craig's "12 days of christmas in july" blog hop ( day will be saturday, july 15th, so check it out plus all the other wonderful christmasy projects by my fellow christmas bloggers!  i don't know exactly what day it starts, but i'll let you know.  in the meantime, since the secret stuff is done, that means the clear organizer is was empty, quickly replaced by pieces of that wonky border flimsy.  have come up with an alternative border that will preserve the triangles, but first have to remove all of them, unsew and repurpose.

unsewing is great TV watching work, so another UFO flimsy for the machine has now come to light..

it's the solids ocean waves and hoping that can get this to the flimsy stage in the next week or so.  by then should have the borders off the other one and then can rework and finish THAT flimsy.  *** it's a gorgeous monday here and windows are open wide for some fresh air sewing.  summer is 1/3 gone and making good progress on my goal of emptying boxes/bags/drawers filled with UFOs, which has also kept me from starting a whole lot of new projects.  quilting the QOV is more than half done and after that, another bed size is waiting in the wings, which should be a 2017 finish.  hoping to squeeze one more big quilt finish before 2018 arrives....and just like that, the year is half over!  fun quilty days flying by.....
