August must be for very busy bees

It’s hard to catch my breath there is so much going on so far this month. Last Saturday we went to a housewarming/birthday party for a dear friend. I made a quick gift of a table topper. This is what it looked like when it was finished. I say “quick” gift because I have a stash of log cabin blocks that I have made using Elmer’s glue and Sharon Schamber’s technique while watching old movies in the evening. Then, when I need a gift, I can just whip out some blocks and stitch them together. Some of the blocks are hand pieced and some I use to “sew off” from other blocks. Here’s the table topper I made for Tim and Anna:

And, I’m working on one for a wedding gift for the wedding I am going to today. I added some stars to this one. I think I’m going to like it. I’m going to do a little more custom quilting on this one.

Table Topper - not yet quilted - for Clarence and Sinead

I have to deliver some comfort quilts this morning – too busy to actually go to the retreat – but I have photos and will post them this coming week.

Ezri has to go back to CHW this week for checkups and to talk about whether she will have gamma knife done on the last remnants of her tumor. I am going to go for the Friday appointments, so this coming week will be busy too.
