Back to One Monthly Goal

My One Monthly Goal (link up is at Elm a Street Quilts) for September is....

This ancient TAW UFO. If you think that this looks familiar, well, it is because I posted about it here in July....when it was my OMG for that month. So, I have made progress, but it needs to be a finish for this month. 

And, yes, Diet Pepsi is a necessary quilting

I need another finish to catch up to my personal challenge of a top every month, or 12 for this year. The race to finish Glorious Gardens threw me behind, but it was worth it to see that one through.

My work table looked like this yesterday.

Drives me nuts and decreases my productivity, so in a jiffy it was back to this....


Family at Ebeneezer Stone Farm on Sunday....

As we gathered to celebrate Rob’s birthday ...

And to dedicate Ebeneezer Stone Cemetery...

It was a beautiful day and God treated us with double rainbows...

It’s Been Awhile.....

Since I linked up to Slow Sunday Stitching over at Kathy’s. She wanted a pic of where we relaxed and sewed. Her place was outside, but I don’t do much outside stitching because the dogs really want to help.
My favorite place is in my comfy chair, propping my feet up on the ottoman that Mattie and I share.

You can see that I have my newest EPPing project in my lap. It is Salute to Levens Hall by Kim McLean. I am doing this one in pastels...a nice change from the dark, dramatic look of Glorious Gardens.

Speaking of Glorious Gardens, Mary Lou (our EPPing facilitator), Laura and I challenged ourselves to finish this top by September 1st. The good news is that we all made it. To say we were happy is an understatement. Here are our quilts....

Mary Lou’s


And mine.
Aren’t they beautiful??? 

And this is Gretchen’s amazing Glorious Hexagons, which is a work in progress....

I also finished another block on the Linda Brannock Flowers quilt.

I appliqued my baskets instead of piecing. They are a bit wonky, but the pieced ones in the pattern were, too. I am still a block behind, mostly because I am obsessed with these EPPing projects.

Was excited to receive this lovely package in the mail last week....

Beautiful Liberty of London lawns to add to my stash.

We had the last of the okra from our garden this week.

We worked on preparing our beds for cool weather vegetables a couple of days when it wasn’t too hot.

Jackson’s flag football team won the championship in their league..,

Now it’s time for fall baseball. That boy always has a ball of some kind in his hand.

Sara Ashley and her mom travelled to Athens for the first UGA game of the season.

They were looking good and so were the Dawgs!!
