Oh, Chooky, I have July and August Blocks done except for the wooden chair. I have ideas for substitutes but have not done the block yet. I have almost finished the strips which goes between June and July and promise to get a post done ASAP. I have traced the design for the pin cushion and am planning on making that one for a contest we're having in October.
Blessings, Mama Bear

I finally did some work on my blocks today after weeks of nothing. Life just got in the way but I'm determined to have my top together next month. My laptop crashed a couple of weeks ago, so no blogging for me as I'm currently using my iPad.

Oh Chooky, I AM hopelessly behind our SKofW schedule. I must admit I'm behind all of my works! So I desperately need a bite of the stitching bee... or something else... wiuh-whip!!! AUTS... it really felt ;o)

I knew it! I knew that whip was coming out sooner than later! Oh boy I am one of your slackers that have been stitching away but not blogging! My bad! I will get on that asap! I have just a bit of hand stitching to do on my sewing block and I have started on the strips that go in between. Then I will be all caught up! Then you can spare your whip! LOL
