Finishes......

Most of my time lately has been spent getting ready for the move down to the Dallas area, but there has been sewing going on as well.   Gotta do something to maintain my sanity through all of this, including having no success at finding a place to live before I get down there.

First up, pics of the blocks I made for the July round of the F2F swap that I'm a part of.   these blocks went to a swap member in France and have been received by her, so i can post the pics of them now.  Her requested colors were lime green, a red-violet (pics do not show the right shade of purple), and a cream background.




Next up was my row-by-row quilt.    I was able to get it finished this past week.    I'm planning on turning it in this next week in one of the shops in Cheyenne if they have not had a winner.   I'll be calling first tho before I make teh trip out there.  the fabric used for the backing was a 54" wide, with a border on both sides.   There are 9 rows total in the quilt - 8 on the front and the 9th on the back as my quilt label.   All of the stores are listed on it and I named the quilt "From Wyoming to Texas".




And there were several more scrub tops completed, bringing my total to 11 completed at this point.




Gratitudes:

1. Packing is going ok....and I'm making headway on what needs to be done.  

2. Had a great time in Idaho with friends this past weekend.

Is that 11 more since the last box??? You've been busy! And that's From Wyoming to Texas, BY WAY OF TN! LOL I'm glad so many things are working out for you. I surely hope the house does, too. Can you believe that Monday is August 1? It seemed so for away when you were here!

WOW! Three weeks left. Seems you just get here and your gone. It sounds as though Texas may finally be the best place to roost. I wish you much happiness and luck at the new job. Your Row by Row quilt came out beautiful. Those scrub tops you make, just make me smile. The person getting those must be a happy soul..... :)
