Review of Goals, and July, July, Ju-lyyyyyy

It is the last day of June, so I am going to review my goals from this month.
June Goals-
1. Finish Mirabilia Angel (hopefully this week).- Done! Pictures are posted on older posts.
2. July Ornament- Stitch and finish off.- Done! Pictures are posted on older posts
3.Work on Under the Friendship Tree.- Worked on it. I made good progress and I finished the girl on the left. It is turning out really cute!

4. If I get to it- Hunting Companions.- Worked on it. I only got a small amount done though, I plan to work on this over the weekend when I need a "portable" craft.

5. The main thing I started this month is a quilt. I am very excited about it. I started this on Sunday and I have been working on it every day. It is going to be a 60" X 60" lap quilt. It has 8 different fabrics which are shown below. I love all of the fabrics and am excited to see them all together. My progress so far is- Made the pattern, bought and washed fabric, and cut all of the pieces for two of the colors.


My pattern is shown below. I made it up by seeing one I liked on etsy.com and making my own pattern. I hope it turns out well.
This is my first quilt, so if anyone has any tips or advice just let me know! I am sure I will be posting progress as I go.


Goals for July-
1. Work on quilt- get all pieces cut and 1/2 of quilt pieced together
2. Work on pepper embroidery on towels
3. August Calendar ornament

On another note, we have started harvesting from our garden. We have gotten a couple batches of green beans and we have tons of tomatoes that are getting close- We are planning to can this year so I am getting pretty excited.

Night at the lake and a weekend of finishing off projects!


This weekend was a productive one. We didn't have too much to do so I was able to finish some projects that I had already stitched. I framed my 2006 Cherub. I have multiple matching 4X6 frames like this one so I may need to do a set of Christmas stitches to go with this Cherub.

On Saturday Bret and I got together with one of my sister's family and my Dad (the rest of the fam was out of town) to celebrate father's day. We made shish kabobs which were delicious! It was a good time and was nice for a relaxing evening.

Sunday I got a lot done around the house and was able to finish off the July ornament (below). Now I am exactly 1/2 way finished with the year!

On Sunday we also got Scout a new pillow. We went for a bike ride and she ran along and was completely pooped afterward. Here she is relaxing on her pillow.

This weekend I also made good progress on Under the Friendship Tree. I am close to my goal for this stitching round and then will move on to another project. I didn't get to work on it tonight, we went and had a picnic at the lake. One of my good friends from school and her fiance moved back to town and we went out to the lake. We had a good picnic and got to swim. Scout had an awesome time splashing in the waves.
Happy Stitching!

July ornament is all stitched :)


I got the July ornament stitched. The flag fabric at the top of the picture will be on the back of the ornament. It stitched up very quickly. I was very excited to get it done so fast.
We had a lovely weekend visiting the in-laws. I need to work on laundry tonight and give Scout a bath!

Good finish-Mirabilia Angel


I am finished with Mirabilia 2006 angel. I finished up the last of the beading and backstitching tonight. I thought I had a frame that would work for it, but it was a little too small. I will have to go to Hobby Lobby and get a frame. I won't display it until Christmas anyway, so I have a little time.
It does feel good to finish a project and be able to take it off my list. Next up is the July Ornament. Should be fun and cute!

Tuesday, Tuesday

I am getting so close to finished on my Mirabilia Angel. I have just a little beading left and am waiting on my metallic thread to come in the mail (hopefully tomorrow).

This evening I wasn't able to stitch, we had a get together for a friends birthday and tomorrow night I am going to watch "He's just not that into you" with my sisters. It will be fun, but my goal is to finish the angel by Saturday!
