July WIPocalypse update

Wow, July already?  It seems like this year is just whizzing by.  Although I won't argue if fall wants to get here quicker...I'm sick of this extreme heat!  And fall means Halloween!  :)

So, I have two happy dances this month!

First is a baby sampler pillow for some friends.  Hopefully, I'll be able to give it to them in person next month.

Next is a little freebie from SanMan Originals:

Speaking of SanMans, I'm still working on Sewing Jars and the cupcake tree.

I'm also still working on Magnolia.

And Joan Elliott's Phoenix is being backstitched!  Yup, all the cross stitches are done!  I think.  But there's a few miles of backstitch, so no happy dance just yet.

I picked this little Mill Hill kit up yesterday at the my LNS (along with many other goodies including the 2012 JCS Halloween collection!) and started it:

I also got Sweet Pea framed and hanging up, which is good, as she is my July Mirabilia.

I did a few crafty things as well.  I thought the octopus I did last month looked lonely, so I made him a friend.

I also made memory boards for my nephews...but I forgot pictures!  I do have a pic of the one I made for their sister:
So, like that, but one was in University of Michigan fabric with yellow ribbon and one was Michigan State fabric with white ribbon.  Yes, they live in the same house (their poor parents!).
