Random notes from a former confirmed spinster who still lives with cats. Some things never change. Oh, and I quilt, hike, and bake on occasion.

Block of the Month (July)
So, here's what I'm thinking. I'm thinking that I've already got enough fabric to make 117 or more quilts, I'm doing the Spinster quilt which I'm barely out of the starting gate on, I'm doing another quilt for a friend of mine (more on that later), and yet I think there must be something else I can work on. The answer comes from Sew Mama Sew's Blog and its Block of the Month project. I mean it's a block a month, how much trouble can I get myself in? Well, really, it's just a block a month. I can do that or at least not get terribly far behind. With all that fanfare, I proudly present to you Ms. July. I'm making my blocks in shades of purple and grey. Mostly because I've joined Pink Chalk Fabric's Monthly Solids Club, and, man, do I need to start using more solids. If you are keeping track (and why wouldn't you be?), I'm using the May color stack - Pocket Full of Posies. I would like to take this opportunity to point out that it is August and I am current with that project. Victory feels so good.
