No self whipping for me....

I think there is a special word for whipping oneself... but I'm not into that....

... so I thought I better get a move on...

 I had done my stocking applique before my holiday.....


and I started my pudding as soon as I could when I got back.....


... and did the piecing for them both at the same time....

I am loving the applique on these blocks ... and the piecing is nice and simple with the squares....

I like the polka dot on your pudding. Both blocks are gorgeous. I'm surprised by how many of us have a blue compote!

I love the colors and prints you're using. Just a FYI, July was a bust for me as far as this project...I was trying to finish up a quilt I'd been working on for a year or so...done now and have started on the embroidery for my July block. Should be able to finish up both July and August together before starting September off right.
