Do I really have nothing to do?

I finished another blue and yellow kaleidoscope block, I’m “sort of” doing these as leaders and enders.

Another one is printed and ready

july 009

But I don’t have a MAIN project

look at these empty bins?

they are from my UFO shelf

july 012

And I only have 3 quilts ready to be quilted, the black and blue pineapple quilt- need to be “focused” when I do that one.

A fall HUGE quilt with blocks from a swap, I also want to really “focus” on that one as I might want to do feathers and stuff on it

and lastly a tree skirt where I just need the backing, that might be the next one I tackle I think

See! my board is pretty bare

july 014

I’ve been having cord issues still on the back of the machine, this is temporary, but I want the cords to go UP and back.

july 015

So one project I had bought fabrics for was this BOX pattern, I might do that one next actually, now that I look at it.

july 016

Or should I sew a dress? I bought this pattern when I was pregnant thinking that I would make it for this summer, BUT Sonja still needs easy access, so I can’t wear it yet! also I measured myself and for the bust I’m XS, waist I’m a M, hips I’m a small…. hmmm UGH I have to modify the pattern a lot I think

july 017

This is another pretty simple pattern I think, I really like the dress and the skirt, I might try that- IF I have a zipper, but I looked at the pattern last night it says I’m a 16! what?? I’m more like a 4-6- I just bought shorts in those sizes the other day. argh… this is why rotary cutting is SEW much easier.

july 018

we’ve had a lot of rain in NC lately and these mushrooms popped up in our yard overnight

july 029

Kind of “freaky” they grew in a circle! (the ones on the left that are not in the circle are because my kids kicked them)

july 038

So the kids have had some indoor fun, Bjorn pushing the girls around in their laundry basket Smile

Hmmm tough choice. I'm sure you'll figure it out quickly.
