Well I started right away on my UFO #7 for August...
Kristmas Keepsakes
19" x 19"
Honestly I didn't expect it to go quite so quick.  This came as a kit from a gift through 52Quilts and Aunt Marti in 2013 for participation in that years UFO Challenge.  I do like it; although I think the contrast could have been a little bit more vivid with the ribbons and bows.  It is a good project for me to complete this month.  I have some travel planned later this month and I have two big UFO projects that are yet to be called into action.  This will give me time to cut!

I hope this first week of August finds you doing the things you enjoy.  More wonderful projects to be found at Patchwork Times.

29th Annual Fur Ball Donation
San Diego Humane Society
48" x 56"
Kanine Karnivores
48" x 56"

DH dropped me off at Beverly's to get fabric for Kanine Karnivores borders, binding and back.  I know I've said it before; just love the selection of fabrics on Beverly's Blenders Wall.  There was two shades of brown in this design.  I needed four yards and had my fingers crossed there was enough of this shade...YIPPEE...

Kristmas Keepsakes
UFO #7 was selected by Marti of 52Quilts to work on this month.  It will go by fast as it is only 19" square. Kristmas Keepsakes will be my projects name.  These are the fabrics and the quilt makes up into the four gift packages you can see. Marti might remember this as it was a gift I won through her UFO Challenge.  It hasn't been started except to press the fabrics.  I'll be working on this next.

So here's the changes...

Used this week:  13 yards
Used YTD:  176.5 yards
Purchased this week:  4.5 yards
Purchased YTD:  77.75
Net Fabric Used in 2015:  98.75 yards

Happy Birthday Steve!, August 1, 2015

Sure miss you brother.  Life was so much richer with you...

Birthdays in Heaven
Are a wondrous thing
Everyone's invited
And all the angels sing.

They sing Happy Birthday
May your day be filled with love
And lots of birthday wishes
Sent from earth to heaven above.

So we send our birthday wishes
Wrapped in lots of love
We're sending them to heaven
On the wings of snow white doves.
