Paintbrush Pouch

I haven't had much time for sewing and crafting lately. I did manage to get a few things done for our kids. DD asked for a paintbrush holder and she chose this owl print. This was really quick to make. I used a laminated fabric for the lining since the brushes would be wet when she uses them at school.

Ugly Quilt Complete

I was on a time crunch to finish my ugly quilt since a friend wanted it even though I kept saying it was ugly. Sure glad it's going to a good home though.
This also completes my August ALYOF and FAL 3rd quarter goals.

Variable Star

Whew! Summer is just too short this year. We are all heading back to school next week. Some of us have online classes so we can be home and some of us have to physically be in the classroom. 
It's been such a fun and busy Summer. Although I have been able to sew more than usual.

Rush Hour Plus Cotton and Steel

Did you sign up for Mdm. Samm's RUSH HOUR blog hop? This is going to be sew fun! I just received this beautiful fat quarter bundle of Rush Hour fabrics from Studio E. The prints are so pretty! I've got some fun projects planned.

ALYOF August Goal

It's time to set my ALYOF goal for August. I have been trying to get the ugly quilt done. Yesterday (Saturday) I found some more fabrics to piece the backing together. This whole ugly quilt is so hard to do, but I need to finish what I started, so my goal this month is to quilt and bind it.

Pets On Quilt Show

It's time again for the Pets on Quilts Show! Each year Lily Pad Quilting hosts this fun virtual quilt show and since I have cats I will enter my quilt in the cats on quilt category. Our cats love to lay on the quilts when I leave it laying around.

Red White and Blue Pillow

I have been using my orphan blocks to make pillows for our couch. It helps to brighten up our room and our couch. I also like the fact that it is small enough to help me practice my freemotion quilting.
