With a three day weekend at the beginning of the month, I had a great start to a productive month! Although, some of the productivity involved purchasing a bit of fabric!

Quilty accomplishments
  1. Bound the fairy quilt for the shop
  2. Assembled a green and brown yellow brick road top for the shop (Both 1 and 2 can be seen here.)
  3. Made the June Thimbleberries blocks - 4 total
  4. Made 2 blocks for the the Guild's Sew to Win (Both 3 and 4 can be seen here.)
  5. Spent a lot of time cutting and organizing scraps
  6. Pieced a backing and turned a quilt into the shop to be quilted. I can't wait to see what they do with it!
  7. Finished my Jitterbug blocks!
  8. Won a giveaway!
  9. Went shopping with a peep!
  10. Assembled the 2008 quilt shop BOM top

Non-quilty Accomplishments

  2. Got flowers from a co-worker that brightened up my office for a week!
  3. Got my new crocs and happy feet!
  4. Watched the first 4 Harry Potter movies - very enjoyable!!

Books read

  1. Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer - very enjoyable!
  2. My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult - made me cry
  3. Where are You Now? by Mary Higgins Clark - very quick read and good like all of her books
  4. Wesley the Owl by Stacey O'Brien - awesome! Very interesting look into an owl's life. I liked this one as much as A Lion Called Christian by Anthony Bourke and John Rendall!
  5. Tears of the Giraffe by Alexander McCall Smith and
  6. Morality for Beautiful Girls by Alexander McCall Smith - I am enjoying the No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency Series! I am almost done with the next one, too!

Now, I need to work on my August Goals. And get some sleep!
