Craft Hope Project #4 is underway! This time they need sock monkeys! Ugh. The last time I tried to make a sock monkey it didn't turn out so well. I've also got a full plate right now as far as projects go, so, I don't know if I'll make a sock monkey this time around. BUT, one of YOU could make a sock monkey!! The monkeys are headed over to Little Heroes Preschool Burn Camp, and they will benefit the smallest of burn victims through the Firefighters Burn Institute in Sacramento, California. Deadline is September 18th, plenty of time. Head on over for a Sock Monkey Tutorial.

And one of the blocks done for Shannon, and the Stash Busting Bee International. The fabric she sent is the center square. I have one more block that I need to make for her this month. The quilt she's making has a Hunting Lodge theme for her nephew, so I figured a Hunting Lodge quilt needed a Log Cabin block.

What's this you ask? It's my newly finished sewing machine cover! I LOVE IT!!!!! It ties on either side with ribbon, so it's fast and easy to get on and off. The fabric I used was from Sorbet, by Moda. I got the idea over at Sew, Mama, Sew! Check out the tutorial from Jessie over at Tiny House.
I have also just finished my first two blocks for Stash Bustin' Bee International. Basically, every member is assigned a month. When it's your month, you send a “scrap” of fabric to each of the other 11 participants by the 1st of your assigned month. The quilters will use their own stash to complete your block, incorporating the fabric you send.Quilters will send back the completed block by the end of the month, along with a scrap from their own stash, just to spread the stash love!
This was my first block. Lish, who had this month, requested pinwheels, stars, or spinning things. The flower print was the fabric that was sent to me, the red and blue are from my stash. This block was 12.5", and I was pleased with it.
I had enough fabric left over to make this 6.5" pinwheel block. Again, I was pleased with my first effort. Until I saw Marilyn's block. Her block blew mine out of the water.

Cut back the rose bushes that didn't do very well through the winter, and planted some flowers.
Maddox fell asleep waiting for the "lumberjacks" to come cut down the trees out back.
On a different note, I have discovered that if you go over HERE, Walmart has a list of products that you can request a free sample of. Nothing is better than free. It takes 4 weeks to get your samples, but they're free so who's complaining?! So far I have a new hearing aid battery coming for my Grandpa, pull ups, perfume, lotion, sunscreen...the list goes on. You should check it out.
