June Sewing with Sandy

Hey, look at this….it’s still June and I’m posting our progress.  Woo Hoo!

Sandy and I always have our “show ‘n tell” at our Woolies group which meets on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays.   Yesterday was the deadline for getting our projects done.   We both managed to get everything done!  

Sandy picked all the projects for this month. 

Here goes!

First up is the Buttermilk Basin mats, “By thy hands BOM”

This one is Sandy’s


And this is mine.


We are continuing making projects from the “101 Fabulous Small Quilts” book.   This one is called “Native American Quilt”.   





The stitchery project she chose for us is by Chestnut Junction called, “Sunflowers 4 Sale”. 

Sandy chose to make hers into a pillow. 


The first one I made was all in wool. 


Then I remembered it was supposed to be our stitchery project, so I made another one.


We are still making Christmas projects, so this next one is by Farmhouse Threads called, “Sugar and Spice”.

We both stuck to the pattern colors.   This one is Sandy’s.


And mine…


Another Buttermilk Basin project chosen was the “Seasonal Fall Runner”. 



and mine…

Jack decided he needed to get in the picture.


Ahhh, now you can see the flag and crow. LOL.


This next project was supposed to be a May project, but Sandy completely forgot about it, so it carried over to June.

The pattern is by Primitive Pieces by Lynda called, “Rudolph”.

It’s only 7” x 8”, so you can turn it into all sorts of finished projects. 

Sandy chose to do some little pillows.


And I thought of little wall hangings. 


And last up is a freebie project from May Britt of   It’s the 2011 Christmas Heart.   If you make it, be sure and reference it back to her. 

Sandy made this darling little bag and filled it with berries and greens. Isn’t it darling?   Wish I had thought of that.


I did a little wall hanging. (I also made a pillow, but it’s not stuffed yet, so technically, I guess, it’s not finished. LOL)


So, that’s it for June.  The next couple of months will have fewer projects because we both realize our limits when it comes to summer.   But…we are still committed to continuing our challenge. 

If I’m not back before the 4th, have a wonderful holiday.  Stay safe tho. 

Hugs, Anne

I always get so excited when I see these posts in my blog roll, and I am never disappointed. I am also ALWAYS flabbergasted by all of the projects you two complete in a month--and they are all wonderful. I just find myself smiling, ahhing, and chuckling at the fun and delightful projects you two churn out!

I was so excited when I saw your post for June was up. Did a little happy dance in my living room. LOL

Once again you and Sandy have amazed me. Beautiful and delightful projects. I love Gingerbread Men (aka G-Men) so you can guess which project was my favorite. :-)

I can't believe you two turn out that many projects in a month. Do you ever do anything else??? I know you do, of course, but its amazing to see all your goodies.

Oh, I'm working on my first wool piece right now.

Love seeing all your projects! And I like the free heart pattern you guys made - but I can't seem to get access to the freebie from the link. Any ideas where else we might be able to access it? Would like to make some pouches for Christmas gifts. Thanks for all the inspiration!!!!!
