End of Month Stuffus



(CTTY and AYOS)




July 31 - our next stop on our Christmas Through The Year journey. The CTTY Train is pulling in to the station as we speak.




Cheryl and I know that there are far more important things in your lives in the middle of the summer - vacations, back to school prep, avoiding the hot iron in your sewing room (teehee), etc than sewing for Christmas gift giving. I do hope you set aside a day or two to make a gift or two. By doing that you killed two birds with one stone - spending a little time with your sewing machine and keeping your stress at bay in December. :-)



Sadly, I did not follow my own advice. :-( There were no Christmas gifts made here. Sigh! Oh well, there's always August - LOL




She did it! Who and what did she do? I'm talking about Carol - she made and posted a Christmas gift or item every day in the month of July. Talk about serious inspiration - if you need inspiration you need to visit Carol. She posted a couple of collages to show everything she made. I'm in serious AWE.




Way to go - Carol!!!!
I am a DITZ - yes I am! LOL I've been wondering what Cheryl was making for the winner of this month's giveaway. OMG, OMG, July is MY month, not Cheryl's. LOL So, late last night I got busy and this is as far as I got. But-------------I will finish quilting and binding it today and post a picture tomorrow.




Mr Linky and I are on speaking terms again so please add your post at the bottom of the page. :-)




By adding your link to Mr Linky you'll be eligible to win the little something, something I'm making!





Another Year of Schnibbles




Here's my finish for July's Another Year of Schibbles. Yes, it's Bounce again but it's an official flimsy now - final borders have been added.




Thank you Sherri and Sinta for all the hard work you put into making Another Year of Schnibbles so successful.




Enjoy a pieceful day!





In Friendship!





I don't know what happened to Mr Linky but I've managed to get it back - you can see all the links at the top of the 'comments page'. Just click on "Mister Linky, you're next"

That's the table runner pattern I showed on my blog, super easy right. Yours is very cute. Thanks again for your kind words about my Christmas in July.

You two make quite a team and you make this so much fun! Thanks again! And yes, Carol was amazing this month with her daily inspiration! Planning on making one of her projects for August. I think I have some of that line that you are working with...it looks wonderful in your project. You did an awesome job on Bounce! It's on my list too. I am smitten with that border and may have to add it to some other quilts.

Sandie @ crazy'boutquilts said...

I got mine finished early this month. :-) Don't expect it next month! LOL Thanks for the fun!

I always love what you do. Thanks for the continued inspiration.

I think we all need to get to have month's off, that's kind of part of the 'no stress' :) The giveaway quilt is looking lovely, you are doing a fabulous job with this group, both of you!
And yay for Mr Linky no longer being a grump!

Andee said...

Thanks for the extra motivation to work on all those Christmas presents...one month at a time they all get done!

Narelle said...

Scary how fast the months are flying past.
July's gift is for my daughter :)

Wendy said...

I didn't get my act together fast enough. I made 2 vinyl pouches for gifts but didn't get them posted in time. Oh well now I have something for Aug.

Allie said...

Oh Darlene I laughed so hard - how funny that you forgot it was your month! Girl, it's good to know I'm not alone.

Strlady said...

I have had those months... You know, the ones where you could lose your head if it wasn't screwed on. no Christmas project for me but I wanted to let you know I have been reading and love your enthusiasm on this project.
Oh and your Bounce is so lovely!!

Wendy said...

I did it! Thanks for your encouragement. I've got my Christmas projects posted.

Mr Linky is not in a good mood today :-(

Betty Lou said...

Love your Schnibbles, aren't they the best? Will check out Bounce.

PunkiePie (Jen) said...

Bounce is awesome. And Carol did great with her month of Christmas. I liked something she did so much, I ordered the pattern and made one for myself. I need to put the border on and then I will post a picture. Hope all is well Darlene!

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

Your July Bounce Schnibble is just so darn cute Darlene!

Sandy said...

I love your Schnibbles! I have been making tote bags and will show you the first one made with "Sweetwater's Lucy's Crab Shack"! Happy Quilting!

Carole said...

Carol said...

Michele said...

The Bounce you made is lovely! I plan to order that pattern today!
