I started with cutting for a baby quilt - a little boy born about a week ago. I hope to get it finished this month so that I can deliver it to his aunt in early August, and then she can pass it on to him.
Then, mom and I took a little trip on Friday to Threads of Time, and I brought a magazine with me. If you've been reading for a while, you know that I have had the desire to make myself a new purse since about February. I even picked a pattern and pulled fabrics for one, but it just didn't get me going. I was browsing through an old magazine about a month ago and found a really cute (and easy!) pattern so that's the one I am going to make. I found some great summery prints - they were fresh out of the box! And I also found some nice teals/greens to make another one. I even talked my mom into buying fabric to make one too! We are hoping to get some sewing time in this afternoon to get started on them - and the pattern isn't too hard, so maybe we will get them done in an afternoon.
|Perfect fabric for pet beds (aka fabric that was never going to make it into a quilt of mine!)|

Fabric used last three weeks: 2 7/8 yards

I sure would like to make some progress this month and be up to 25 yards by the end of the month....I better get going if I want to do that!
