July Projects

Crochet blocks for K4BN 

I'm still crocheting away whenever the opportunity strikes (refer to the comic here).

Since the last time I dropped off some blocks to Maria - in April - I have made another 31 blocks.

My Sunday Stitchers group are finally able to meet physically tomorrow - so off they go to her for some TLC, some black edging and joining to make blankets for cold, needy people.

Bluebird Lane

My UFO Number four July was #12 - that was going to be to 'knit some wool jumpers for penguins" (from wool kindly donated by Fiona) - but alas! by the time I got to do them - it seems there are plenty and they are no longer required.  (some mixed tenses here- my mother would have a stern word . . .)
So I was able to swap another project for #12. - I picked Bluebird Lane as it only needed the binding.  Many thanks to Fiona again for her lovely quilting.
I had no decent sized pieces to make the binding from - so I tried one of the destash sites - and lucky me - someone had half a metre of one of the reds that I was after so I was able to finish it easily enough.

and some close ups

was it the buildings that sucked me in??

Baby Quilt

And this time the baby quilt is for my hairdresser - well my "colourist".  (She has now had her baby girl.) Her mother has been cutting my hair for years (I must check - but at least 15), but she is now not working on "my day" so I am about to "train" the newbie in both colour and cut!. 

I have found this pattern to be so easy - the fabric can make it fun or pretty...whatever.

and I found a very cute backing:

I've made them so that the top finishes at 39" wide so only one length of fabric is needed for the backing.   And a very uncomplicated quilting pattern.

Taggies x 2

I added a taggie to go with the quilt  - again a very simple project, but fun to choose what bits get added.

My podiatrist's partner is also due to have a baby, (he doesn't know what the sex is) so if I'm making one  . . . I may as well make 2 . . .
I had posted these earlier but they weren't quite finished.

Phew - a productive month and it's not over yet!
But as I'm off to Townsville for a week - there may not be any more finishes for July.

Great month of getting things to a finish Susan, well done with the squares and your quilt is beautiful. Great you could get the fabric you needed. The baby quilt is very cute and the taggies are great, perfect for little fingers to play with. Good luck with the hairdresser training, is a difficult job 😁😁.

i couldn't believe that i would ever be re-unite with my ex-lover, i was so traumatize staying all alone with no body to stay by me and to be with me, but i was so lucky one certain day to meet this powerful spell caster Dr Akhere,after telling him about my situation he did everything humanly possible to see that my lover come back to me,indeed after casting the spell my ex-lover came back to me less than 48 hours,my ex-lover came back begging me that he will never leave me again,3 months later we got engaged and married,if you are having this same situation just contact Dr Akhere on his email: thanks very much sir for restoring my ex-lover back to me,his email: or call/whatsapp:+2349057261346

hindi ako makapaniwala na kailanman ay muling makiisa ako sa aking kasintahan, labis akong na-trauma sa pananatiling nag-iisa na walang katawan na manatili sa akin at makakasama ko, ngunit napakasuwerte ako sa isang tiyak na araw upang matugunan ito malakas na spell caster na si Dr Akhere, matapos sabihin sa kanya ang tungkol sa aking sitwasyon ginawa niya ang lahat ng makataong posible upang makita na ang aking kasintahan ay bumalik sa akin, sa katunayan matapos na ihagis ang spell ang aking dating kasintahan ay bumalik sa akin ng mas mababa sa 48 oras, dumating ang dating kasintahan ko. bumalik sa pagmamakaawa sa akin na hindi na niya ako pababayaan, 3 buwan mamaya kami ay nakipag-ugnay at nag-asawa, kung nagkakaroon ka ng parehong sitwasyong ito makipag-ugnay lamang kay Dr Akhere sa kanyang email: maraming salamat sa sir sa pagpapanumbalik ng aking dating kasintahan bumalik sa akin, ang kanyang email: o tumawag / whatsapp: +2349057261346
