Two boxes will be heading your way tomorrow...and I hope to put together a third box by the end of the week and get that to you by the deadline. All of you reading this...I ask you to put a box together as well. We can make an Iraqi's dream come true...as well as the dreams of a Major named Art who truly understands us quilters and our need to help others. Thanks, Art!

A close up of the block center...
Projects 3 and 4 are still in the works...I've turned the heel on my sock and I'm working on the foot and I've been appliqueing the first of the 3 blocks I want to finish...I have a feeling they won't all be done in time! And then we had a new project thrown in at the last minute...finding a car for Ellen in time for her to return to Providence for school. Her car has had a series of fuel pump problems and after replacing the fuel pump about 5 times it just finally died. So, she's now the proud owner of a Mazda Tribute. She was able to load all of her college stuff in the car and get back up to school safely...and we didn't have to take her!!! We'll be heading up to visit her before Labor Day.
One other project completed here...after 20 years of saying I wanted to get a real estate license and putting it off, I finally signed up for class! I start September 14th and class will be over by late November. The encouragement of a good friend can be priceless...

First up is a block for our Diocesan quilt project. I've been asked to create a block representing our parish. I'm going to do a Baltimore Album style block, red on white, with a small sketch of our church in the center.
Third are my socks that have been on the needles for months now...I want these done before the weather gets cold!
I've got loads of projects going on my design wall. My fourth project will be catching up with my basket block of the month. I've got June, July and August to do, I plan to have them done by the end of the month!
