I was FIVE behind on these BOM blocks ... clearly, drastic measures were called for!
Last week, I showed you the October and November blocks as I finished them up....
This week, I finished up July Bertie and added it to the growing pile for sandwiching and quilting. That Bertie is rather sassy, isn't she? She just spits out those seeds any where! I think she may be just a teensy bit tipsy on blueberry wine LOL!!!
And then I got all the basic stitching done on September - this one is ready for it's half-square triangle border and then the final embroidery around the border.
I just couldn't wait to start on that sweet little squirrel!!!
I'm so glad Bertie has nice friends, aren't you?
All of her forest friends are so friendly and love to share with her! Maybe that is because she is friendly and likes to share .... we learn so much from the animal world if we just take the time to observe them, don't we?
I started on the August block last night and got all of the green leaves & stems done ....
All that's left is the pear stem, Bertie's eye and feet, and then some white polka dots in her kerchief. I'm hoping to finish it up today so I can piece these last two borders tomorrow. This was the LAST Bertie in my box!!!
Ahhhhhhh - it's so nice to have an empty project box!!!!
I've also unearthed my poor little neglected Hootie owls and got busy working on finishing them up....
I'm thinking the last two owls will be orange and gray... (or maybe light brown?) ... what do you think? The brown fabric on the left is my best stash fabric for the tree and limbs. If I still like it when the Hooties are done, it can stay :) However, the Red Hootie is going to need major surgery....
As I shared back when I made this one, I'm really unhappy with my fabric choices. All the fabrics just mush together. This is my definition of a hot mess, so, it will be getting a much-needed makeover this week !!!!
I've got a lot on the calendar this coming week, but most of it is fun quilty stuff.
I hope you are planning lots of fun time with your favorite quilt projects!
Linking up with Kathy's Quilts.....
