This month's Doggy Stitch is done.  Remember I'm using LMS's Birdie Stitches and making one for my niece with the dogs.  I could only fit one dog on here with the sparkler, but it works.  (There were originally two birdies.)

I finished my last Swoon block, and I really like this one.  I sewed the same section wrong twice! One more time and I would've had to replace fabric, but all's well that ends well.

This is a horrible picture here, but I was testing out placement of my blocks.  I was really hoping to have them sewn together, but life with the munchkins would not allow it.  That's why this pic was taken on my bed, not the floor, where it should be. 

Oh, and spending the weekend at Atlantis on Paradise Island didn't help with the no sewing, however it did help the insanity! 

I had a few extra HSTs and made two pillows.  Well, the pillows aren't actually made yet, but they will be....
And finally, since all of my embroidery is up to date, I've been doing some Paper Piecing, following along with Lynne of Lily's Quilts Hexalong.  These are nice big hexagons and it's a great way to relax my mind!

Here's to a productive week for you and me!

  7. OH my gosh!! Sarah, I just *love* how you've substituted the doggy for the Birdie blocks! It'd be so cool if you felt like linking your post of the dog blocks up to BOMs AWAY next Monday. Do you mind if I send you a reminder that day?

  11. Your swoon blocks look lovely. I am holding out to make that pattern in Ruby when it's avaliable but I love the pattern. And so clever to make those blocks with the little dogs. I have my stuff to make the birdie blocks but haven't actually made one yet. I guess I should get started since I'm currently 7 months behind schedule.

  19. Hi, Sarah! I just about forgot a reminder (I'm so sorry - got sidetracked doing back-to-school shopping.) Sure would be super cool if you would share your Doggy variation of Birdie Stitches at today's BOMs AWAY. :D http://whatahootquilts.blogspot.com/2011/07/boms-away-monday-12-patriots-beachwalk.html
