August, 2013 Quilting/Sewing Goals
The Dog Days of Summer ~~ July 3 - August 11
Everyone knows that the "dog days of summer" occur during the hottest and muggiest part of the season. Webster defines "dog days" as...
1 : the period between early July and early September when the hot sultry weather of summer usually occurs in the northern hemisphere
2 : a period of stagnation or inactivity
Not that this has much to do with quilting, but maybe the 'stagnation or inactivity' would apply at times. However, no excuses after 8/11...at least in reference to the Dog Days. lol
How is everyone doing? I didn't get the color crumbs all together, but they're more together than they were the first of July. For August:
1. Continue to work on the color crumbs
2. Tops for Abbi's boys (am using the novelty blocks from the last BD swap I was in plus some orphan blocks)
3. Sew 9 1/2" strips to Love in the Mist 2011 BOM border blocks
If I can get this much done, I'll be pleased. How about everyone else.....any special plans for August?
