During the quilt run, I bought Anni Downs "Gardener's Journal" book. There are some really cute, small projects in the book and I made a sunglass case. Sewing the curve on the flap didn't come out too well; next time I'll hand stitch it or use my Juki as she sews curves so smoothly.
I made a "Happy Hostess Gift Box" from Jennifer Casa for Sew Mama Sew. I used fusible fleece since I didn't have the stiff fusible interfacing. I was in Joann's the other day and bought the stiff fusible interfacing and will use that next time. I like how it turned out and is super fast to make!
I wanted to prepare for the upcoming International Quilt Show next weekend in Long Beach so I made a tote bag! This is a McCalls pattern M5898.
August 2nd I'm flying out to Oklahoma to be with my dad. He's not doing very well with losing my mom. The first few months he was fine; the past couple of months have been hard on him. We invited him to sell his home and property out there and come out here to live with us. He has agreed that this change is what he needs. I'm so excited! The property will go on the market and I'm hoping it will sell quickly so I can bring him home! I will lose my sewing room which is fine with me. I have enjoyed it even though it isolates me from my husband. I'll be back in the dining room without the quilt frame. I'm taking that down and will sell it. Before I leave, I must finish the Summer Breeze and Camping quilts!
