Something Old, Something New - July Update

Last month I didn't manage to get this post up till several days into the new month, this month is no different.  June was crazy busy and after going over the extended family stuff planned for July and August, the rest of my summer is going to be really busy. Stitching and blogging time are going to be hard to come by for awhile.  I had hoped for a slow lazy summer, but it looks like that's not going to be the case. 

My something old continues to be the Jigsaw quilt.  I actually finished 6 of the remaining blocks in June.

Just two more blocks to finish, then Drama Teen will have to help me decide on the borders.

The something new for June has been to work up a design for this butterfly panel.  


  
I've only managed to come up with one potential layout for the butterfly blocks.  



But at least that's something for the month.  

Check out that other old and new projects posted over at Never Too Hot to Stitch.

Yay, Jigsaw is so close! And I hear you on the calendar. This summer is packed...and I'm solo parenting, so I don't have any goals other than surviving.

Sewing time gets hard to come by here in Summer too- I think we all just want to be out enjoying the lovely weather.

I'll sew enough for both of us Kate. Winter is upon us which is prime sewing time for me.

Love the idea for the butterfly quilt. Run with that.

Your Jigsaw Puzzle blocks looks beautiful together, and I am sure you will come up with a great plan for the butterfly panel.
