August and October

Those two months certainly don't have a lot in common....other than...Little Bo Sheep!  I have listed the months of August and October on Craftsy for FREE for approximately one month (October 15th).
Have another peek at August...I had previously posted a picture of this one.

Little Bo Sheep's close-up for August...

The entire August block.  No seedless watermelons here!   And look...Little Bo's all ready for trick or treating....
or maybe....you really cannot see her.. After all, she is a ghost!!

Snow Happy Hearts

August Snow Happy Heart
Totally forgot to post a picture of my Bunny Hill Snow Happy Heart for August.  Here she is with her bucket and shovel for a day at the beach.  She better not stay out too long!!

September has the little snowman(lady) getting ready for school.

Two fun and quick blocks to make...now I am ready for October!

A pillow?

What'cha think?  A cute pillow with some bright Halloween prints around the outer edges with a ruffle?  Ideas?

Never too early for Halloween!

Going backwards, a little

Back to July....I made my Little Bo Sheep block for July.  I have redone the block with  few minor alterations.  Once again , I will make this pattern available for free for a month.  After September 20, 2015, there will be a small fee.  It is currently  available on my Craftsy page.  Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!

A little closer look,

I know...I know...it's not September yet.   But...only two short weeks away.  I thought I would show my new block for Little Bo Sheep with it's September theme. 

I am making this pattern available for free  on Craftsy.  Here's a link to the pattern  Bo on Craftsy, which will be free until September 15, 2015.  After that date there will be a small fee.

Those autumn leaves are just beginning to fall.  Bo is ready to enjoy all those delicious apples!  Yum!

My father-in-law had a neighbor who, invariably during the summer, would always ask..."Hot 'nuff for ya, Dave?"  Now..how hot is hot enough?  I guess it all comes down to perspective.  But it has been "nuff" for me!  :)))

Little Bo Sheep, on the other hand, has been enjoying her summer.  A nice, new pair of sunglasses and a BIG piece of watermelon!  Looks like she should have tried the seedless variety! ;)

This is one of the  blocks I have prepared for a new yearly project.  Each block will feature Bo with a special outfit or activity for the month.  Anyone interested in joining me?

How can it be?  July, already??   A half of a year gone by?  Zoom.......I thought I would have a few more projects completed by now.  I've already seen some things about Halloween!

Anyway, I did finish the July Snow Happy Heart.  Another cutie from Anne Sutton of Bunny Hill Designs.

July Snow Happy Heart
A look at the overall block in my quilt.
And, yet another new idea....monthly blocks highlighting my Little Bo Sheep.  These will be able to be used as individual blocks for different uses, or as an overall full-size quilt.   Rather than start at the beginning of the year, here she is for July, being so very patriotic with her 'liberty' hat and flag.

Happy July Bo!

Thanks for stopping by!  Hope every one is having a great summer!
