Have you entered my 300th post giveaway? You have until Friday. You can do that by leaving a comment on this post.

Meanwhile, I've been zipping through projects lately. I made these place mats for Leigh Anne's friend Jordan, back in AZ: I really enjoy making place mats like this. I just stitch and flip the strips, using a quilt as you go method. I've made several sets, but none for me. Hmmm... I need to fix that soon!

Leigh Anne saw pictures of my new top and asked if I would make one for her. She liked the fabric too, and asked me to make it in the cobalt colorway. I ordered it from Fat Quarter Shop on Wednesday and it was here on Friday.... I love how prompt they are! It stitched up quickly, especially since I had made one before.

It's hanging in my nice clean sewing room, which will transform into a bedroom for Leigh Anne two weeks from today! It will be great to have her home for a little while.

So that's what I've been up to. What are you making?

This shirt looks so comfortable! Maybe almost two months ago, there was a website/blog, that was linking to free patterns every day. I downloaded a tank pattern that seems to be similar to this one. Now, I just need to make it. It would be perfect for this extremely hot weather we're having :-(
