Grande Old Flag

Well, I've finished most of my projects from Grande Old Flag.

Here is Campaign from Carol Hopkins Civil War Legacies designs.

and Sampler Baskets, also designed by Carol Hopkins.

 I also finished Star Sampler designed by Paula Barnes of Red Crinoline Quilts exclusively for Country Sampler's Grande Olde Flag event.

Here is the first cross stitch project that we worked on.This is a design from Linda Lautenschlager of Chessie & Me. We pre-stitched the designs, then painted and assembled the box at the event.

The cross stitch sampler is no further along. I love it though and will get back to it one of these days.  Here is a little sneak peek of it.

The count down is on for Star Party...11 days to go. I'll put some pictures up as soon as I can.

Country Threads UFO Challenge

So....I have been very busy this summer doing everything but updating my blog. I was going to show you everything I have been working on this summer, but I can't seem to get organized enough to do that so...I will start with my last three UFOs for the Country Threads challenge.

First up, a Christmas poinsettia wool appliqué mat.

Second, a Christmas holly wool on flannel applique mat.

The last, The 12 Days of Christmas. A cute sew along from Temecula Quilt Co. I did, however, do this my color way.

There does seem to be a theme going here. Lucky me! I am all ready for Christmas!

Next Tuesday I will find out which project I'll be working on in October. I'm still enjoying this challenge. Hope they do it next year too. I'm sure I would not have been so motivated to finish these projects on my own. I did mention to Mike last night that I didn't know if I could come up with 12 more unfinished projects. He assured me I would be able to. :)

If someone came up with a challenge for projects not yet started I'd be set for life.

Up next, wedding and baby gifts.
