Hi everyone!

July is here already!! Have been busy this past week with family so didn't get too much sewing done. Hubby was off for  Fourth of July week and we had a nice time just being together. We Bbq on the 4th and sat around the yard it was so peaceful the dogs loved it they were outside with us all day as well.  On Friday hubby went to get the tuck serviced, get a new social security card ordered and then went to his  parents to check on them.  On Saturday he spent the day doing yard maintenance looks real nice now!! On Sunday he installed the new dishwasher in the kitchen for us. It looks good    and is a whole lot quieter than the old one was.  (I'm still hand washing !!)  I also re sealed my counter tops as well.

My sewing machine died on me last week as well so ordered a new one from the QVC company so I could make payments. I ended up buying a brother CS-6000i   can't believe how quiet it is!! no more getting in trouble if i sneak up during the night they don't hear it!!!

Most of my material is in now for Esthers Love Entwined quilt I am just waiting for my greens I have the compass ready to sew just have to get it done!!

I have been working on Snowbound quilt as well I have nearly half of them done now I will go back and do all the embroidery and buttons after I get the applique done.
I made my July block for the  Crafts Delight sew along

Worked on my Plenty of Fish quilt there are only 4 more steps to getting this mystery quilt done I think it will turn out to be a nice Christmas gift but we will see.!  I am also nearly done the String of Pearls quilt along as well just need to catchup the last steps for the top  and that will be another Christmas gift done ready for quilters!!

I worked a little on my christmas swaps but I really  really need to get back to finishing them so I can  work on my monthly BOM's  I am getting too far behind on some to even say I can start them!!!

Next week will be a bust getting much done as the dogs and the cat all go to be spayed and neutered on Tuesday that will be 4 of them at  one time should be interesting!!  I will be glad when that is all taken  care of then I can save for the new couch before the end of the year.!! Will be nice to have a good couch again in the livingroom!!
Well no much else here so I will get a move on today and dig out my xmas swaps things to see how much I still have to do!! I will take pictures of everything to show at the begining of the year!!!

Oh and I signed up for a coaster swap with the Quilting Gallery I didnt mean to but I couldn't resist the pattern!!
