I think I'll try to get all the placemat tops made before the blooming nine patch class starts in August.

Well I got another maybe inch done on the place mat stripe that is done in the cobblestone.  What a piece of work!

That's good, Tammy. I wish there were pictures of the progress.

Maybe when it is done.

For today I managed to loop the second placemat. 

Now comes the part that requires much attention.  I need to rip the seam between the different pieces to create the wave.

i've ripped the seams on columns 1 through 3 twice and now I'm having to redo 4 because I got that one wrong too.  Did I say I needed to pay attention?  Maybe the answer is I need adult supervision.

yep messed up the last two columns.  This is getting a little bit frustrating.

it hasn't gotten to that point yet.  If it were a large quilt rather than a placemat I'd probably be sticking it in the closet.  For now I am determined to get spring placemats and this is the second pattern I've tried.  I'm out of money so these are going to have to work.  Grrrrrrh and all that.

I was going to get carols help with this today.  But it is there open house and they have been incredibly busy all morning and into the afternoon so we'll try another day.  With quilting I all of a sudden need a bigger house.  How did that happen?

I think any hobby is like that, Tammy. Even gardening seems to take over the house somehow.

I got with carol and we separated the 2nd placemat.  And then today I took that one to craft club and did the third one.  Now there is only one to separate.  So progress was made.

I'm half way through the 4th one and then it is on to piecing the tops together.  My hoped for deadline is July 29th.  It is getting pretty tight.

Well they are all separated.  Now it's on to ironing them and piecing them.  Again I hope I can move quickly but with more accuracy for this step.

I've ironed 36 strips and have 24 to go to complete all three.  It's progress.  I don't stand for very long periods at a time so that was my limit this morning.  I think their was one mistake but I'm leaving it for now.  I'll see what it looks like when I pin it.

finished the ironing.  Now I have to put the strips aside in favor of another project. 

My bee's wax circle was completely worn out so I decided to try and fix it. Using an egg cup I melted the wax and then cooled it.  i had to trim it to get it to fit back in it's container but now I can use it for another year.  That makes me happy since money is back to being tight.

The quilts are now taking over the craft room, the dinning room, and the living room.  Where next?

What do you use the bees wax for, Tammy?

I run the thread through it to stiffen the end so it is easier to thread the needle.  A softer bee's wax I use to make the thread move through the fabric easier.  It also keeps the thread together so it doesn't separate and knot up.
