So guess this will carry over to an August finish
(or Sept, or ????)!!!!

Time to think of August Challenge--

I got the pattern out and cut apart--
then found all the greens and white fabrics--
tried to remember 'how' to do paper piecing--
and after a quick trip to the quilt shop for a refresher lesson--
I managed to get 2 sections of the tree done and a 3rd section prepared!!!
so I am on my way!!!

Merry Christmas--di and miss gracie

And just how big the paper pieces are
 and just how much fabric this is going to take???????????????
too late now--I am comitted!!!!

Can you believe that it is the first of July?????
and now we will be on the downhill spiral for the holidays--
once again--
So I guess this month it should be something to do with one of the holidays coming up!!!
So here is the plan--
do a project for Christmas that you want   for yourself--
and have not gotten to it, yet!!!!

This is to be mine--
This is a tall Christmas tree-
it is paper pieced--
Last year my quilt shop had one in the window and everytime I stopped in,
I wanted to make one-
finally bought the pattern and this was to be January's project--
it is now July --
so it's time to stop and just make it--!!!
now to finds all the green fabrics I need--
hope I have them in my stash???????

What will be your project???
Remember this is something for you and your home--
we work on the gift stuff all them time!!
hugs, di and miss gracie
