August Goals

Switching gears from travel to being home, I looked over my list of August goals this morning. I made a good start before traveling last week but there’s still lots to be done.

  • Quilt 4
  • Assemble 9 patch and hearts top
  • Start piecing a bowtie quilt
  • Bind 3 quilts
  • Finish the seashell stripe blanket

I started by working some on the seashell stripe afghan – I finished up the 3rd Big Cakes today and I’m thinking I’ve got at least 3 more to go before the blanket will be long enough to have the length to width proportions I want.

I was just about ready to go into the sewing room when I heard a bit of distant thunder and thought I’d better check the weather forecast to see what I need to work around this week … looks like lots of storms but at least the temps aren’t in the mid 90s!

I’ve also got a couple appointments this week including one to check out a new longarm. I’ve been waffling back and forth about replacing my longarm for a year now and I think I’m finally ready to do it.

  1. It must be hard to work around all those thunder storms. But at least you have your afghans handy to work on when that happens. I told my granddaughter I would make her a Harry Potter tote bag before she went to Disneyland. I have had the material on my cutting table for a month, now I am down to the wire. Luckily they are not hard to make. I am putting my vegetable garden to bed, just have some beets and carrots that need a little more time. But I am hoping to now have a little more time for sewing. And how lucky to be getting a new longarm machine. I would love to have one but can’t justify the cost at my age. And I would want one of those programable ones. Very expensive!!!
