July is out with a bang!

Finished up July with a bang!
I came out of my comfort zone in finishing this one. Used chevron patterned fabric with checks. I covered a backing board with the chevron fabric. Then mounted my stitched piece on foam board with low loft quilt batting. Glued my stitched piece to the chevron board. Had some glitter stars, suspended on wire. Cut those loose and glued them in the corners.
The inspiration for this finish came from this wonderful blog https://priscillas2000.blogspot.com/search?updated-max=2018-04-18T06:38:00-07:00&max-results=7&start=28&by-date=false
Well worth the time to cruise through Priscillia's posts.

Time for some beach themed pieces to go with my August beach themed wall. Beach Bum Hootie ready for ornamentizing!
And the start of a Hootiesaurus.











My August wall is a bit sparse. Hope to correct that by the end of the month!


Hope you all are managing to stay cool and stitch!
Thanks for stopping by
