Not only am I still alive, I actually finished something!

I am finally coming up for air.  May and June were just crazy for me at work and at home.  But I was able to take a four day weekend for the 4th of July and I'm back into a more normal routine.  I even got to work on one of the my Fat Quarter Shop Mystery Designer BOMs that I have left.

This is 11 of 12, County Fair, by Julie Comstock of Cosmo Cricket.  There were a few new things that I did in this block that were fun.  The four corners have half square triangles, that then have another triangle placed horizontally across.  I love the look of those!  I also didn't get my center seams lined up just right on the first try and I'm very happy I ripped it out and re-did.  The center is just right now.

What took up all of my precious little sewing time in May and June was my super double top secret project.  Here is a super mega close up, which is all I can share.  But I LOVE the way the project came out and I can't wait to share more.  I learned a lot about working with linen...which I'll share when I can do a bigger reveal.
