Three at work

There are three projects being worked on in my studio and at the cottage.

Hand quilting the applique on the borders is still on going.  The binding is done and it won't take me too long to finish this job.
Stitch by stitch, this hanging is slowing coming to life.  More embroidery thread was purchased so I won't be running out any time soon.
This ufo was pulled out and the applique borders can continue.  Except for the vine, what you see here is just pinned onto my design wall.  So far, I'm not totally crazy about this design, but it will do.   Those leaves are throwing me off, so they just might get changed. 
The last two projects will come with me to the cottage so that I have something to work on.  When it is too hot to work on them, then a good book gets my attention instead.

We have had some rain here and the fires around our neck of the woods are under control.  The rain has helped and the air quality is much better these days.   At least our windows can be opened to let in cool night air.  Now when we walk on the grass there is only a slight crunching sound.  A couple more days of rain is still needed.

August is going by much too quickly and there is so much that I want to get done this month!  Oh dear me .....

Have a great day!

I love your applique on the border of the first quilt in this post. The stars, the leaves -- just gorgeous!

Love the vine and circle border on your snowball quilt. It looks fantastic! So glad to hear that the fire situation has improved. Glad you are safe.

All three of your current projects are wonderful. You have three different stitching ideas to work on. It's nice to have a variety. Glad the fires have died down with the help of the rain. The Colorado foothills are visibly absent Hidden with a smoky haze from all the fires out west.
