AUGUST BUSINESS

Wow. Half way through August already. I've been loving these long hot days and hope for more of the same in September  : )

This month Mary asked for these little blocks made from half square triangles. She loves gingham so I dumped out my scrap baskets and found a few bits. She asked for a light pink solid background and I found this Bella solid in "soft pink".



 I have started adding to these blocks for the do.good stitches group.....


....the flying geese units complete them


and I am still sewing up some pretties with these Cotton and Steel fabrics


More on that in the next post.
I am off to work on this fine day  : )

Gotta get me some of that Cotton and Steele. Ha! How come when I visit here I always want to buy something?

I love gingham too! Great blocks and hope you're having fun with the cotton and steel!

Nat at Made in Home said...

Love then all. I am just wondering whether my current ban on buying fabrics should really stop me from buying cotton + steel - definitely feeling left out!
