Design Wall Monday - August 2, 2021

August 2nd!  Happy Design Wall Monday ladies!!  Boy, July whizzed by in a hurry, didn’t it?  The doll quilt name I asked for your help with last week shall be named “Little Red”.  Thanks for all your suggestions.  Gretchen pointed out that it should have a little name because it is such a little quilt, and I agree.  I’ll quilt it this week when I am back home with my sewing machine.

When bringing only embroidery quilt UFOs with me to the cabin,  I included four dish towels, a UFOs that I started years ago.  It is a set of four towels, that had been stamped with an iron on transfer of squirrels.  For some reason that I don’t know, I had started on three of them, doing only part of each squirrel.  Well, now all three are finished, and I am working on the fourth.  They will all be completed soon:



Our daughter, Christa, and her family have been visiting from Texas.  Today Christa worked on a crocheted baby afghan that she brought with her.  She has a goal of using all of her extra yarn to make baby blankets and other baby things to give away.  Like my fabric stash, her yarn stash is bountiful.

She didn’t want her picture taken, so this is just a peek at her over the baby afghan.  This baby afghan will have a border of the light lavender all around the outside when it is complete.  She says she will be finished with it before she goes home, and will leave it here for a charity gift for someone.  She’s so nice.


Penny is dog tired.  Our granddog, Tucker, has been visiting for four days and they play hard.  They spent a lot of time carrying around a toy together - each holding on to a part of the toy with their mouth.   Tucker has gone home now, and Penny Lane is tuckered out!


But it was not all just playing games with Tucker for Penny.   Here she is out in the lake with me, enjoying the water.  This picture shows why July went by so fast for me.  hehehe    



What are you starting, working on, or finishing this August?  Thanks for participating in the Design Wall Monday linky party each week.  I appreciate you.   Just click on the button below to enter, and please mention in your blog post that you are joining in with Design Wall Monday.  Thanks.

  1. It's so nice you had a good visit with your daughter and her dog. The afghan is very cute. My mother used to use up yarn by crocheting granny squares. She also made my boys some striped afghans. Have a wonderful week, happy stitching!

  5. Nice to see Christa. I’d like to know what stitch she used to get the scallop on the purple part of the blanket. I’m a double dipper-have fabric and yarn stash.

  6. Nice to see Christa. I’d like to know how she got the scallop look on the purple part of the blanket. It’s really pretty. I’m a double dipper-have both fabric and yarn stash. Well….maybe a triple dipper because I’ve been mostly doing counted cross stitch lately.

  12. Oh, Judy — I loved seeing the picture of your daughter Christa, and the one of you and your Penny Lane out on the water! So nice to match up a face with the Voice of Design Wall Monday! :-). Those squirrel dish towels remind me of ones I inherited from my grandmother and still use — they remind me of her, every time I use them!
