Saturday Again !!

Were did the week go ?????  I've been busy sewing and still raking...

As I enjoy making for the community on Monday I picked up a pile of Boomerang Bags , click on the link and read about them HERE






















First I got all the handles sewn   





sew far I've made 7 and I'm waiting for the front label to sew on which is the pocket....


While I was raking up leaves on Tues an  "Inch Ant " bite me... Boy did it sting. You can see it's still sore today..




















Saw a big nest while raking this morning and I got right away from it.... once bitten twice shy !!!


Wednesday I spent a day in town and bought these...












                                                                                                 






 to make quilts to donate to kids...






This week I have finally finished the stitching on block 3 
















and 4 of  Lynette Anderson's "Seaside Town" Now to make the Snail Trail blocks and clam shells... 




hope to catch up with the "Roundabout Quilt-Along" blocks  and  the " Holly Cottage" block for this month over the weekend.......



what will you be doing ??????  Some stitching  ??

Hugz  Maria :)

  2. Wow! You have been productive. All looking good. I've never heard of itching ants. I'm glad we don't have them over here.

  5. Here is some advice from Dr. Di--the best thing to put on those bites, stings is a product called 'After Bite" and I got mine at Walmart--though don't know if you have those in your area--and second--when my bites look like that-- I just spread some honey (real honey--not syrup type) on it and leave it for about 10-15 minutes and then wash it off--it pulls the infection right out of it--I bit with red ants on the trip to NY and that is what I did (ended up doing honey thing 2 different days--)
    usually when I get bitten with red ants I am in pain for 3 weeks--this time with the After bite and the honey it was just a week--
    and look at all those beautiful projects you are working on--way to go girl--
    enjoy the moments, di

  8. Ha! I said the same thing about today being Sunday again already! It's kind of scary! All your work is wonderful. You've kept so busy and it appears, organized. I need to take a page out of your book, I think!

  9. You have been busy with wonderful projects! The Boomerang bags are an idea to be supported. I always use a big grocery bag I have made, and carry a foldable fabric bag in my shoulder bag for other shopping. - The stitchery looks lovely!
