I hope you enjoyed seeing the amazing creativity and sewing prowess of last week's ambassadors! I am getting excited to show you what I've been working on, and at the end of this little post, you'll find another sneak peek. My turn comes up later next week; it seemed quite far away, and now it's nearly here! Remember there are lots of giveaways to be won as well, both at the bloggers' posts and at the Island Batik blog.

The Great Outdoors Island Batik Blog Hop

I know I am on blog-cation but there are still some business duties that I must take care of because I am an Island Batik Ambassador, and a very proud one too!

My turn comes up in the third week of August, but this week I hope you will visit the wonderful creative people whose links are below. There are pretty sweet Island Batik giveaways all the hop long, and giveaways at most, if not all, the bloggers. The main page for the list of bloggers posting throughout the next five weeks well as the Rafflecopter widget for the giveaways is on Island Batik's Blog.

Beothuk Star

This little quilt was more than a little demanding with her quilting. What I thought I could knock out by Sunday/Monday at the latest ended up taking me until Thursday evening! She is so worth it though. Let me present Beothuk Star. I hope you'll grab a java and read her story. I loved every moment of creating this quilt. She is #4 on my Q3 FAL List of ten items.

Throwback Thursday #8 Runners

Welcome to the August edition of Throwback Thursday! First, an important announcement: I am going to have a partner in sharing TBT. Andrée of Quilting and Learning - What a Combo! is going to be co-hosting with me beginning on the October edition. She'll host December as well.😍 I've got a couple of super-busy months in September and November, so this will ease the pressure, and it's always fun to share! Like me, or moi 😉, Andrée, is Canadian, a lover of learning, and a teacher.

Runners, like cushion covers, are fast and satisfying makes. Here are two I made for my mum.

The bottom one was made in 2000, and the top one in 2004.
