This is my UFO finish for July, Neighbor's Fence. I started this several, and I do mean several years ago. It is made from all of my flannel scraps. The only thing that I had to buy was the border fabric. I have pieced the backing from some of the flannel scraps that I had left. The really sad thing is that I have another one of these that is on my UFO list for the year, the good thing is that it is almost finished. All I have to do is add the borders. I really feel like I am really accomplishing something this year.

Sew Many Ways, not that I need more fabric but it was red after all. You had to send in 125 5 inch squares of red and white fabric. That was not hard for me to do. I think that I bought two new fat quarters but the rest of it came from my stash. I had started to wonder when it would arrive, apparently there were a few people late mailing in their fabrics. On Friday, when I went to the mailbox there it was.

Can't forget about the cucumbers. These are the 14 day pickles that I have been working on for 14 days. Now today maybe I can get back to sewing. But first I am meeting a good friend for lunch, then heading back to the stitch in.

Each year the Blue Ridge Arts Council sponsors a quilt show during the summer. This year the show happened to fall over the Fourth of July weekend. I convinced DH that we just had to go. There were some wonderful quilts. (I plan on having some of my quilts in the show next year). It is a small show but there are some wonderful quilts. I always enjoy going to this show, however, the lighting leaves a lot to be desired. The quilts really aren't show to their best advantage.
