I AM READY!!!!

For July's block.....I am all caught up.

Some of you may have figured out that I am traveling. I really needed a thimble and was able to get one from my mother on our way through to Texas. What a difference it makes.

Now....I used varigated thread for alot of this square, it looks silver and I thought that would be just perfect.

Now...I am so ready for the awesome Beam N Read blog hop that starts on Monday. If you look on my sidebar you will see what order the hop will go in. This Beam N Read light is sooooo awesome and what is even better is that each blog in the hop will give away one light....so please put this on your calander for Monday and join in the fun!!

  10. You need to encourage me to embroider. My grandmother did. I still have a quilt she did. What lovely blocks you are doing.

  16. I just love your birdie blocks. I have some embroidery stuck in a tote bag around here somewhere. I guess I should get it out and start working on it again. Travel safe.

  20. Beautiful block. They are all lovely, but this one may be my favorite. Love the birdie in earmuffs chirping with Mr. Snowman. So cute. And your stitching is excellent. Going to be a beautiful quilt.

  23. You're all up to date!! And I'm so jealous of everyone. ;D The layer cake I got for this project looks at me and calls out and I keep having to say, "Not just yet!" My mark for being able to start this project is having both Around the Worlds off my UFO list completely finished. Getting closer - they're up next!

    I'd be honored if you had a second to link this post up at today's BOMs AWAY "party" - http://whatahootquilts.blogspot.com/2011/06/boms-away-7.html
