August Monthly Accomplishments

August was a bit of a resting month after the excitement of July and the Survivor Challenge. Here is what I got done:

  1. Put together 9 take along bags for Jen, Dominique, Moniek, Regina in NY, Jennifer in Indy, and 4 for some quilting buddies in my small group.
  2. Started a class for the Best Friends Courier bag. I also got all of my homework finished from the 2 classes.
  3. Picked up a set of bed risers to make tables higher for ease while cutting
  4. Quilted Maddy's retro quilt
  5. Went to a retreat
  6. Quilted my burgundy and ivory log cabin
  7. Finished 3 runaround bags for my retreat buddies. I also showed 2 ladies how to make the runaround bags at the retreat.
  8. Made a test pair of pants and cut fabric for 6 pairs
  9. Finished 4 pairs of pants
  10. Quilted a quilt for Kristie I still have to mil this out! :(
  11. Got fabric for an ugly quilt challenge with the small group. I also picked up some leftovers that Jeanette didn't want.
  12. Finally finished the binding on a quilt that had a heavy fabric for the binding and flannel for the backing. This took me almost all month!
  13. Got some hand dyed fabric from my small group buddies when they went to a class while I was working.
  14. Prepared fabric for a secret project that has to be done this month.

And other non-sewing items:

  1. Listened to the F, G, H, I and J books by Sue Grafton. I am really enjoying re-reading this series!
  2. Worked the phone lines for the St Jude Dream Home Giveaway.

Well, that's about it. I have just over a week before I head to Florida and I have a lot to get done. Hopefully, the Shop Hop this weekend won't wear me out too much and I will be able to get some quilts quilted before I leave. :)

You got all this done?? whoa! good job! And I'm scared to make a complete list of all my UFOs. Thanks for commenting and visiting my blog. I'll definitely try doing loops on my NG frame. Muslin practice quilt first then onto the first baby quilt. QGB
