This is the project for August, Lovely Year Of Finishes. It's going to be a wall hanging: I have the panel, I have the Spoonflower fabric I created, I have the pieces that I will applique above the panel... now it's time to start sewing!! :)

And finally these are the blocks I made for my June partner in the Block Swap Adventure. I hope she likes them!

How about you? What are YOU up to?
Link it here and share it with me!!


  1. I think there is no way I could get a project done a week unless it was small goals of progress a week. I love your finish!

  2. You're brave to make lists! I did one a year ago and I'm still looking at no progress on it. So I gave up on lists!

  3. I love your wall hanging with the house in the mountains - lucky Dad! Great idea to make lists and update your progress - and you design your own fabric to boot!

  4. You are busy. Your wall hanging is a beauty!! So much to see and everything so funny. Congrats with this finish.

  5. I love your wall hanging! I seriously want that wood-grain fabric. Where did you find that!?

    1. Thanks Erin! I got both at They are called Bali Batiks Wood Grain Bison (the dark one used as sashing) and Bali Batiks Wood Grain Mocha (the light one used as border). They are batiks wood grain, so it's not too "realistic wood grain", it's more "artistic wood grain" but I love how they worked in this piece.

  6. I really like your wall hanging Alida. You did a great job of putting all the different patterns together. Your dad will love it!

  7. Love your work! That's quite a list you've got going there. I'm lucky to have a finish a month, and if I do, it's because it's a smaller project.


Thanks for stopping by! I would love to hear from you!
Please share your thoughts on my projects with me!
