Ellijay sewing projects-done and undone

 I bought this kit from Fat Quarter Shop about a year ago.  I prepped the kit for summer Stitch-in last July.  It came home in plastic bags.  I learned a valuable lesson about precutting.  Make notes on what you are doing and keep it with the kit.  I really love this pattern.  It is called Debonair and the fabric line is "Reenuzit Du".  What's not to like about the French General?  So project done!! (Except for a backing and binding).
And then there is this.......Schnibble pattern called Darcy.  I was able to partially complete this one.  It has more work to do on it.  I will take it to Thimbles this weekend and maybe get it done.
Sarah completed her block of the week  at retreat.  I finished mine at home.  #24 is True Blue-Too Smart.  Easier than last week's block but I had to redo the half square triangles.

Popsicle Sticks was another prepped for summer stitch-in.  When I opened this one I did not have a clue what my plan was.  I worked on it some and then pulled more fabric when I got home.  This is another one that I will work on at Thimbles this weekend.  (I sure am optimistic on sewing there).

I still need to applique the star on the Civil War Diaries block of this month.
