July: A Lovely Year of Finishes ~ Goal Setting Party

Half way through!  Yippee.

Melissa from Sew BitterSweet Designs and I have been loving seeing all your projects and actually finishing some of our own.

My July #ALYoF project is for me. 
I'm going to finish these steam punk blocks into a wall hanging to hand on my wall
I'm so excited.

I think I'm going to cry I love these so much!

To-date I have only finished one block. 
I used the lovely badskirt's tutorial for the centers and they are perfect!

A perfect circle thanks to @badskirt
So I want this to be hanging in our room by the end of this month.  Eeep!

  1. I am so envious of your perfect steampunk centers - that is the only reason I won't attempt the pattern :) They are great!

  2. Loving the Steampunk - the pattern is so ME and yet I just can't start anything new.

  3. Yay for sewing for yourself! You did a great job with the centers! :)

  4. Love your Steampunk - and am glad to report I am back on the goal setting list. Thanks for hosting!
