I don’t think so, especially with a street fair coming up on September 6!! I’ve got oodles of items to make or complete. So far I’ve completed:
  • 3 table runners
  • 1 potholder
  • 10 stuffed items for home décor
  • 1 wall hanging (home décor)
  • 1 apron
  • 1 tea cozy
  • 4 crocheted washcloths
  • 2 gift bags
  • 1 large lined & quilted shopping/marketbag
  • 30 Fabric Gift-tags

I am currently working on a reversible Halloween table runner. I have a little more machine quilting to do with orange Floriani polyester thread. Then I'll make the binding. 

I have so many more items for that street fair in my head and covering my cutting mats!! When my husband walks into my "studio," he must wonder how I can stand the "mess," LOL :-)  Happy creating!

English Paper Piecing

Wait! Thanks to Audrey at Glory Be Quilter for the reminder that I did make my first English Paper-Pieced (EPP) block this past week:

Perhaps you know this already, but I'm partial to cute chickens, which are also featured in this fabric. The outer edges of this block are still unfinished because I haven't committed them to anything yet. 

Speaking of chickens...

I bought 3 new hens in April (pullets actually, which means they're at the pimply teenager stage). I'm proud to say that one of them is now laying cute little eggs everyday!! She's so proud :-)  I'll post photos of the bunch of 5 that I have now in the future for your enjoyment.

  1. Wow, a street fair. I would like to do that too in the future!
    I wish you lots of sales and great fun!

  2. You sure have been busy, Julie! Sounds like you will have a great time at that fair. Here's hoping you make some wonderful sales! Say hi to your chickens for me. Looking forward to seeing them!

  3. My first thought is "Halloween is so far away," but then my second thought is "Oh goodness, it's mid-August!!?! How?" I guess I should start thinking about holiday sewing too... :) Good luck at the faire!

  4. Never too early for. Halloween. I just finished 1, have 1 half done and 2 cut out. Plus I am hosting a Ghastlies swap and sign ups begin in Friday. Come on by!

  5. sounds like you are going to be selling at the craft fair? I would love to, but wish I had a friend to share a booth with me for company.
