 July just flew by...I didn't get a whole lot done in July..just a few things done.  I did get my Salt and Sand quilt top finished into a filmsy.  Which will be my OMG, PHD, WOOFA, OPAM projects this month.  

The quilt top needs to be sandwiched, tied and binding added.  

I am working on getting my RSC 2020 together.  It's a slow process...hand sewing through 4 layers of fabric with "stuff" in the way is hard on the fingers.  I've got 2 rows together.  There will be 10 blocks in each row with 6 rows making the quilt top.  I haven't got the room to lay it this is a partial row.  If your wondering what the heck this's a crazy quilt.  The blocks are 6 1/2".

As for today, I'm working on my RSC 2021 block, I'm making baskets this year.  This month the color is Aqua.  

I'm also making a National Day Calendar Quilt.  Which I'm behind on making one block a month.  I've got Jan through April done...June is Pink Day....I've got a cute pink dress, it will need some embellishment before it's done.  But it's pinned and ready. 

That's it for today...I'm linking up with....

 Today is my turn to post my It's A Guy Thing blog hop.  This is being hosted by Carol over at Just Let Me Quilt...go check it out.  Lots of beautiful quilts to see.

My idea started as a thought.  I had some Bow Tie blocks...they are about 3" in size.  I started putting them together and I didn't like the way they were coming out.  Besides I didn't have enough to make a quilt.  

So back to the drawing board.  I was making some String blocks and I decided to go with that. I've laid them out on the "design floor".  I like this a lot.

Plus I have a pile of them done to add to this one.  Now I just need to start sewing them together.

Well that's it for me...head over and check everyone out that's participating in the blog hop...these folks are all posting today.

 LeeAnna over at Not Afraid of Color hosts I Like Thursday.  So here we go...

I've got one more row on my RSC 2020 Crazy Quilt blocks.  Then I'll be ready to put the border around it.  Since I can't get the whole row in my Camera view...this is part of a row.

My day to post my It's a Guy Thing is coming up tomorrow.  Here is a sneak peak at what I'm working on.

I've also got several projects I'm working on.....well, way too many to list here.  So I'll just do a couple of them.  I need to catch up on my National Day Calendar Quilt.  I need May, June and July.  WOW!  I didn't realize I was that far behind.  You can see my April block HERE.

I also need to add a few more stitches to my Band Sampler.  And I really need to get my Salt and Sand filmsy sandwiched.  So that's it for today  Hope you all have a wonderful....

 It's Tuesday again...where did the week go?  Head over to Chris's place, Chris Knits and check out what everyone is working on.

Last week's list...

1. Make a decision on how to put the RSC blocks together!✔

2.   Do some more embroidery on the Band Sampler.✔

3.  Make a few more Strip Blocks. 👎

July 27th  through August 3rd

1. I started putting the RSC blocks together.  I'm just putting them together in order of month.   January, February, March...well you get the idea.  I got 2 rows together...but my camera can't get the whole row.  I'm doing them 10 blocks in a row.  All the embroidery stitches I used on these blocks, I got from Sharon over at Pintangle.  She hosts and meme called Take A Stitch Tuesday.  She show you how to do a new stitch every week.  Sharon also has a Stitch Dictionary if you need help looking for stitches to work on. 

2.  I put a few more stitches in the Band Sampler.  


See that little car on the bottom left...that section is all about getting my Covid Virus Shot.  Since I'll never see another pandemic...and I wouldn't want to....I thought I would get it written down somewhere.  This seemed like the perfect place to put it.

3.  I didn't get any new Strip Blocks done.  A Squirrel 

came in and distracted me.   I started a new quilt for a friend.  As if I needed something new to do!!


For next week...August 3rd through August 8th

1. Make more Strip Blocks.

2. Sew more RSC blocks together.

3.  Start working on Orange blocks. 

4. Maybe sandwich Salt and Sand quilt????? 

That's it for today...have an awesome stitching....
