I can hardly believe it is the end of August. At least it has been a little cooler the past few days (below a hundred). I haven’t been stitching or even reading the past couple of days, as I’ve been a little under the weather. I’ve been fighting allergies again and just generally felt pretty run down. I am feeling better though and hope to get some stitching done this weekend. So, in lieu of stitching photos…I’ll take a look at how I did on my August goals and see what September has in store for me.
Read Lion in the Valley almost finished
Keep up with book for class (Spiritual Economics) yes!
Finish September Woolly Tyme finished stitching, not finished into blanket yet
Finishing on Flower of Courage I haven’t touched this
Start (and finish if possible) Villa I’ll be starting the one tonight
Get caught up on Mystery 9 ha ha ha
Continue stitching on Lemon Meringue Sampler yes
Finish Quaker Garden finished August 5th
I’d also really like to finish #25 on my 101 list “hang curtains in kitchen window” nope
and maybe even sew some more kimonos for my quilt nope
What else did I do? I pieced my first block of the month quilt block, I started Queen of the Needle, and I started Midi Mystery 2.
Hmm…perhaps I was too ambitious.
So, my goals for September… (let’s see if I can do better this month)
Finish Lion in the Valley
Read Matisse Stories for book club (Sept. 22nd)
Finish Spiritual Economics
Start The Time Traveler’s Wife
Crazy Cat Lady Exchange Piece (September 25th)
Prep Just Nan RR (October 2nd)
Halloween Sweetbag Exchange (October 15th)
Catch up on Mystery 9
I think that’s probably plenty to keep me busy, especially since I will be out of town for a weekend in September. Maybe if I make Mystery 9 a priority, I will actually stitch on it for a change. Martina released the parts for Midi Mystery 2, Mystery 9 and Persian Iris Garden today. (I’m not stitching PIG, just collecting). I wish that I could be as disciplined as Carol when it comes to these Chatelaine designs particularly. She makes so much progress and does such lovely work…I don’t know how she keeps up with it all. Some days, it’s all I can do to come home and flip through a catalog. I had no problem keeping up with Midi 1, so maybe it’s just because I got so far behind on M9…oh well. Off to stitch now! I’m looking forward to a three-day weekend.
I am grateful for the goals I accomplished.
