Good Bye August

It is hard to believe that summer has pretty much come and gone. I have to admit, the promise of Fall is lovely. The leaves are starting to fall, the shadows are getting longer, there is a sweet breeze  and the days are shorter and cooler.

I have gotten two more UFO finishes in to complete the month.  
This Thangles sampler from about six years ago.
And the Dresden Pkate that I started in January when the RSC color was blue.

This is what I have accomplished this month....
*Brickroad mini quilt 
*65 mini Bow Tie blocks (my Leaders and Enders project) for a grand total of 178.
*3 Wonky Star blocks
*6 Postage Stamp Star blocks
*2 Lucy Boston blocks - fell behind on my goal of one per week 
*Giant 4-Patch QOV
*Hooked Spring Basket rug-lack finishing edges
*18 Dog beds
*5 Farm Girl Vintage blocks
*7 RSC Sampler blocks 
*Buttermilk Basin Small August Matt
*Donder and Blitzen wall hanging (UFO)
*Dresden Plate quilt (UFO)
*Thangles Sampler quilt (UFO)
*1 Vintage Block

When I put it all down, it looks pretty significant, whereas, if I just think about it, I feel as if I didn't do much.

This month I would like to....
*Stitch closed the 45 dog beds we stuffed at See Crazies
*Stitch RSC Sampler blocks, Wonky Star and Postage Stamp Stars for September (the color is orange 
*Start the setting blocks for the RSC Sampler
*Knit something 
*Bind 2014 Country Threads BOM
*Make Vintage top
*Finish floral hooked runner
*Finish Spring Basket rug
*Make more Farm Girl Vintage blocks
*Start Jen Kingwell on the button on the sidebar if you think you might like to join stress, no deadlines.

I know that this is an ambitious list and it is not written in stone. But it gives me some goals and a starting point. 

Hope you guys are ready for September, too!

Our dear Buddy was found with a deformed leg that had been broken and never set, chained at an abandoned house.  This has always been my philosophy....even more so now.

Take Care,

  1. It does look like you accomplished a lot in one month. I so dislike seeing August over with even though we will still have summer weather here in Florida for a good while.
    I like the colors you used in the Thangles sampler quilt.
