Well, it has been a whirlwind summer for me, with 4-H and several new endeavors for my family.  Trying to get our house fixed up to sell, or live in...whichever The Lord shows us is best has been very time consuming as well.  Today, the house is mostly clean, laundry is running, and I am hoping for some quality, quilty time with this quilt.  (Just as soon as I quit drinking coffee and actually get showered.)
Really, it is mostly done.  Still waiting on the binding fabric to arrive, so I might just have time to cut into this fabric.

I purchased the FMF while on vacation this year.  Just got the stripe this week...the last on the bolt...thanks be. 

I am planning on making this pocket bag from the book "Romantic Home Sewing:  Cottage-Style Projects to Stitch for the Home" by Christina Strutt.  It should be a quick sew, and hopefully the perfect cross-body bag to haul my iPad and handwork to soccer this fall.

On a more personal note.  my family has been looking for a house with more elbow room in our area for almost 4 years now.  We believe we are seeking God's will in this, but He hasn't provided the house yet.  We go to look at two houses this evening if you could be praying for us.
