Summer = Design Wall Slowdown

>> Monday, July 19, 2010

I can't blame the laziness of summer days, but the sewing is going slowly.
Mostly because I'm enjoying views like this!

I've been busy with the family camping without electricity -
and really enjoying the space created in a day without emails and TVs.

Of course, when I AM at home,
the washing machine is cycling pretty much non stop!
{and the kids are watching TV non stop!!}

My design wall is pretty basic this week. Just the necessities. Two of my July string blocks are now completed. I may get a chance to do one more this week before we head out again:)

Two July Block Lotto blocks are done. I have enough black tone on tone fabric for one more. Then I'll cross my fingers and hope to win some blocks this month! Although I have to say that I am really enjoying trying something new each month through this lotto - even without winning:)

These circles are what's left to attach to this month's Sew Modern Bee block. That's all of the sneak peek I can give you! Nicole wants it to be a surprise so I'll reveal once she reveals it on our bee flickr site!

Here's a photo of the rest of the fabrics I got to play with to make her block:

See what's up on more Design Walls through Judy's links.

With Joy,

Nice blocks. Summer is so nice to just relax with the kids and watch nature. You did get quite a bit done with all the summer going on!!Love the blocks, I need to jump on the "modern" look.

Is that landscape a quilt or a picture? Either way it is gorgeous. No, if it is a quilt, I am totally impressed (and jealous)

you don't really need quilts in the Sumnmer, but it is a nice diversion when you don't have kids and fills up lots of spare time for me...I like your lotto blocks too!
