More squishies!

Two more squishies were waiting when I got home today!  I received my August BSA block from Samara.  I just love the dots and the stripes.  thanks Samara!  Samara is too busy to blog often, but you should go take a look at the amazing picture quilt she's making.

I won this book last week from Jamie of Busy Bee Quilts.  There are some really cute ideas in the book, and I think I may be able to adapt some of them for mug rugs.

She also included 3 extra books!  Score!!  I've glanced through them very quickly, and I think they will be very much at home in my library.

Yesterday, I finished my second BSA block for August.  I've never made this block today, but I really had fun with it

DH was nice enough to go to the Post Office today, so I sent out my two BSA blocks, August Inchy swap, Mug Rug swap, Name Game Swap, a PIF gift, and some blocks for Phoenix Quilts.  It feels so good to have everything for the month finished and mailed.  So now I'm free to work on my Ornamanent of the month, and Christmas Through The Year.  And maybe start something new??

Contentedly stitching the day away.....Sunny
