August Blocks and Beautiful Fabric and Things

I have one more house stitched, the May house.

I've been working on quilting the Stash Buster quilt top that was finished in January and taking up space.  It seems to be taking forever to quilt it, but it is a larger size quilt so progress is slow.  However, I have caught up with one of my Christmas qal's, the From Head to Toe - A Knitter's Gifts block for July which was very easy. 

Next I will be working on the Quilt Doodle Doodle 2014 BOM and the August Sew Kitschy block.

I want to give shout outs to vendors from whom I recently won some nice things.  Windham Fabrics sent me this gorgeous fabric kit and pattern.

I didn't realize I had won all of the fabric, from the Holiday Magic collection by Whistler Studios, needed to make the quilt called All Wrapped Up, but I have and I will be making another beautiful Christmas quilt.  It's Christmas almost every day at my house, at least when I am sewing. 
Thank you to Windham Fabrics.

I am a vegetarian and follow food sites that make some of the foods that I like to eat, so when Hodgson Mill recently had a giveaway for a new product I entered. And won.  I thought I was just getting the Flax Chia blend, but they sent me a reusable bag and measuring spoon as well.  
Such a nice package.
 This is good in yogurt and smoothies, in case you are into them.  
Thank you to Hodgson Mill.

I am very late in thanking Sarah from Confessions of a Fabric Addict for this beautiful fabric which was one of the prizes in her recent Hands2Help Charity Quilt Challenge.  Her sponsor, Fabricworm, donated this collection of Sea Breeze from Wilmington Fabrics.  Hope you can tell from the picture how cute it is.

Those of you who are knitters or crocheters may be interested in a Knit Along taking place at Very Shannon.  Your project needs to be a sweater and does not need to completed by the end of the KAL in September.  I really want to join in and have my yarn and pattern all picked out, but I don't know if I dare begin another project.  But the more I take on the more I complete, so I may just jump in.   

Have a wonderful time with your projects.
God Bless You!
