I'm on a tear!

Yesterday I finished six pet beds that will be donated to the Humane Society.  Jennifer suggested to our bee that we save all of our quilting scraps and make them into pet beds.  I have been saving for a while but didn't realized how much I had.  I keep looking at the bags and telling myself to get the beds made.  When I sewed with Kay yesterday I decided to work on them since I didn't have any specific project for the day.  I still have enough for at least one more bed so will get more fabric from Jen (old stuff that she will never use).  Here they are:

If you have lots of scraps and just throw them away, think about making these beds.  These are good for the animals, especially in the winter, and are totally machine washable.

I've been stitching!

Don't know where the time goes - it seems like it was March just a few weeks ago and I was enjoying the snow at Solitude with Eric and his family.  I had a great time and really had fun with Mr. Alex.  Also got to see one of the girls who was in my GS troop and her family.  The boys played well together.  Here's a picture of the two cuties (Alex is in the blue):

Now I am working on Jen and Mike's wedding cross stitch.  Since they have been married 10 1/2 years I figured it was time to start on it.  I've put it off because it is 30 count fabric over one thread.  I am making good progress on it and hope to finish it by the end of the year.  I told them good things come to those who wait!  :)

I have completed a few other quilting and knitting projects but I'll put those in another post - maybe I won't wait quite as long.

Have a good weekend and try to stay cool.  It hit 100 degrees here yesterday.  For this heat I could still be in Houston!
