Jump to the Christmas in July Blog Hop where I focused on Tumbler blocks. I had a give away and wanted to include a note. I know awhile back I did a few cards based on crazymomquilts book No Scrap Left Behind so I took the card idea and matched it up to a tumbler and raw edge applique and got
Well I got a Christmas Popsicle with a star instead of a tree. I'm sure Louise H. will appreciate it once it and the other goodies arrive at her door.
I am now going out of order because I wanted to know if you knew that it was National Watermelon Day ?
I found out when I opened Carla's blog createinthesticks this morning. This is her design done by me who is pretty new at this process.
and I wanted you to see it before you got bored with all the pictures that are coming up.

Well on the 28th I found a very simple applique design from the holidays that I had done in Red Work and set up my personal challenge
I decided that I would work on one small piece a day for 30 days. My background pieces will be no larger than a 6 1/2 inch square.
This is one of Minki Kim's designs

He is a cutie that I found under clip art
This is a basic house by me.

This was today's block, another design by Minki Kim
So that's what I've been up to around my ususal Quilty, macrame, knitting and crocheting stuff. What's happening in your creative life.
