Charming Girl's Quilt Club - August

Well I'm counting the first month of the Charming Girl's Quilt Club a success for me even though I didn't get all my projects done. I did get 2 out of 3, so that's not too bad!
I really think the challenge helped to keep me focused to get the projects done. And I only started 4 new projects instead of a dozen!!
* * * * * AUGUST GOALS * * * * *
  1. Finish Witchie Hats (my own design) for Jane's Spooktackular Halloween Swap. I'm making fifteen 12 1/2" paper pieced blocks - 12 for swapping and three for individual swaps.
  2. Quilt my St. Paddy's wall hanging I made using Kim's FREE tutorial
  3. Finish, quilt and send a little something for my parents. I'm not posting a picture because I want it to be a surprise!
OK, so I should be able to get these done! Before I start on those three, I need to make a few things for our family reunion this weekend. Hmm, maybe I have something laying around here I can use!
Good luck Charming Girls Everywhere!!

It all looks like "sew" much fun! Great to have goals. I had a lot for summer, but summer had some different ones for me! I guess that's just the way life goes sometimes! It's o.k. though because I appreciate the small moments that I do have! Enjoy your family reunion!

Good luck finishing your August projects. I had to LOL when you said
you stayed focused last month and only started 4 new things instead of 12! I think quite a few of us can relate to that!

Elizabeth said...

Congratulations on your accomplishments! You are inspiring!!

Two out of three is awesome, Mel! Keep up the good work. I'll be looking forward to seeing the Witchie Hats, and the quilts! Love the Sewing Machine stamp -- you're just too creative!
