WIP Wednesday 8-15-12

When I looked today to see when I posted last I was flabbergasted that it's been almost a whole month!  This summer has been going by SO FAST, but I'm 100% okay with it and am most definitely ready for Fall.  Things are finally settling down and I'm happy to have more time to sew and post. 

I have lots to share so I'll keep the Instagram pictures plentiful.  Here's what I've been up to for the past month:

Made Pickles!!  They were supposed to taste just like Claussen - they were close but I used the wrong dill, still tasty though!

Yes my counters are teal and my back splash is mauve

Added (LOTS) more fabric to my growing stash!  I went on a bit of a fabric bender and this lovely bundle is one that made it to my house :)

Birds & Berries FQ Bundle

Started a new quilt for myself!!  Did a bit of cutting and am almost done turning some Amy Butler lovelies into an On a Whim.

Went to the beach!!  We went up to the shores of Lake Erie for our annual trip with the husband's family.  Lots of sun, beer and some grown men in American Flag speedos made for a great trip :)

Long story short, I got fed up with my sewing machine always breaking and my parents picked this lovely up for me while we were at the beach!  Now I need to play catch-up on some bee-blocks!

Bernette 92C
Started (another) new quilt!  My sister-in-law moved up her wedding date so I have 3 weeks to finish - eek!  More on this tomorrow.


Psst - I'm 3 followers away from 100 - which means we're 3 away from a giveaway!

Also, check out the Friendship Quilts Blog Hop that Diane announced today!  There are some great bloggers participating and there is even a link-up at the end with prizes.  I'm posting on 9/13.

Linking up over at Freshly Pieced - be sure to stop by and see what everyone else is working on.
