IHSW for July

This is my starting point on Starbursts and Stripes Forever by Cherry Lane Designs for this weekend.  The picture is sideways.

This is after the weekend!  Now you can see the stripes going the right direction!  I still have quite a bit of white eyelets to add among the blue starbursts, but I'm going to hold off on them and move on the long stripes.


Apricot sunset

I'd not seen such an unusual color sunset before.  It was after a heavy rain and it was still dripping out when I went outside to take this picture.  It was lovely!

Quilt Odessey in Hershey - what fun!

It's happening this weekend so if you like to quilt you should go.  I spent the day there yesterday.  The merchant mart had 80 vendors and a competition of beautiful quilts.

IHSW for June + Some Gettysburg pics

Here's a finish from 2010 that I recently stumbled across.  I still need to finish it into a scissor keep.
This is Make Do V: French Scissor Keep designed by Shakespeare's Peddler.  Like others have said, I don't know why this photo orients sideways!
We took a day trip to Gettysburg, PA the weekend before last.....deliberately ahead of the 150 year activities.  It was getting quite crowded, but there was no one at the penny squish machine!  This one is outside Ghost Tours and I picked up all four designs.
Outside the Diorama, I took my turn at being Lincoln. :)  I didn't realize that I had bangs, much less that Lincoln did!
So my day trip is why I didn't get much stitching done on IHSW weekend. 
However, I used the next weekend as my IHSW.  This is what JBW's Alphabet Heart looked like at the beginning of the weekend on my Q-Snaps.  Silly me, I didn't take a photo at the end of the weekend.
Here's another before picture I worked on.  This one is Time Flies by Bent Creek (one of my favorite designers).
Here's a bad kitty photo.  He's on a piece attached to Q-Snaps that I've misplaced the chart and threads for.  Ah, well.  It'll show up some time.

For the first week in July I did my nails in red, white and blue stripes.  I put the white on first over the entire nail then swiped the blue and red stripes over it.  Not bad for a first effort IMHO.
