I didn't think I had actually started anything new in June so that I could link up for the NewFo Challenge, but I went back through my blog and realized I started my Cheddar Churn Dash this month! WHOOT WHOOT!
Cat Patches for the NewFo linky party, check out what everyone else has been starting on over there!

Judy at the Patchwork Times for Design Wall Monday!
Kathy also got a scrappy purple binding on her Kaleidoscope of Kolor BOM from last year (yes, mine still needs that border fixed!) after getting it back from Ros. The quilting is really pretty--you can see it a little better in the second picture that Ros took. This one is for her niece Bree (the mom of the boys mentioned above). This one has been a long time in the works and I know Bree is going to be thrilled with it!

I got the binding on my Ring around the Hexies quilt. This is really one of my favorite quilts. Hand sewing the hexies, piecing those gorgeous Bonnie blocks and the quilting is great! Ros is so talented and knows just what I want even when I don't! Thanks Ros!
Oh in WW news, I lost 1.8 this week so almost to 43 pounds. People are actually stopping me and asking me what I am doing so it is noticeable finally! :)

Linking up with the Rainbow Scrap Challenge go check out everyone else's yellows!
In other news, I lost 3.4 pounds this past week for a total of 41! I have a long way to go, but one day at a time I am going to get there. I am fitting into clothes I haven't worn in a few years and am really motivated to just keep at it.

I also sewed up some more teeny tiny churn dashes...these are really fun! I didn't get around to making the quilt backs I was planning to do, I hate making backings! They will wait for another day!

This morning I cleaned and sorted through one of my bookshelves. I mostly read on my Nook these days and tend to ignore the entire shelf of to be read books. I decided to get rid of twenty or so of them that I know I will never read, and in the sorting I came across "The Forgotten Garden" by Kate Morton. It called to me even after reading the backs of a bunch more books so I have spent more time reading than anything today. There is just nothing like a good book to take you away and it reminds me of when I was not even ten and discovered books like "Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm" and "The Secret Garden" I have memories of just reading and reading and never wanting it to end! I was the proud winner of the "reading rockets" in sixth grade--by A LOT! If you are a reader, leave me a comment about some of your favorite reads please!
So I did manage to sew up the latest Ooh Rah! QOV block. This one was a bit harder for me, the directions don't tell you the sizes to square up as I went and some tips were lost along the way, but all in all I like it.
