Finished Dr. Seuss

I forgot to show you, here's the Dr. Seuss quilt finished.  Simple loop quilting across, minkee backing and no batting. I'm sorry the pictures are sub-par, the quilt is actually quite bright.

C&V Embroidery Blocks

I've completed the first two embroidery blocks from the Clover and Violet SAL.

Are you watching my blog...

oh sister of mine?   I think you might be and if you are, you should know, I AM working on these still. I hope V likes the end product b/c I will have quit quilting from all the effort on this one and I won't be able to make her another. 

The desire to give up comes in small bits at a time. Usually when I make a block like this:
and they are supposed to be like this:
Now, for what else I'm up to, I've made these beauties for some embroidery work. I have to catch up in this Little Birdie Stitch Along.
I'm about to cut up these for the Clover & Violet Stitch Along (althought admittedly, these stitching projects are more for when I'm in the car travelling or just want the occasional handiwork.)

What are you up to this fabulous July?

Cheers! Beck
