September Accomplishments

September was a restful month for me. Sometimes, you just need a little downtime to reboot yourself. I think that this was the time for me to do that. And I think that my productivity at the end of the month certainly reflected the reboot! Although, it could have helped that I had a BeautiControl party a week ago and have been pretty relaxed and peaceful since then. Love that stuff and the consultant is so great!!
  1. Quilted a pink baby quilt for Becca
  2. Finished the Wizard of Oz OBW and pieced the backing
  3. Made 5 friendship blocks for one of my Guilds
  4. Assembled the Crumb quilt wall hanging and prepped the backing and binding
  5. Made a small cupcake pin cushion
  6. Signed up for a knitting class that starts this month
  7. Registered 2 quilts for the Indy Quilt Show this month
  8. Got On the Way to Oz quilted at the shop
  9. Made 9 blocks to help a friend make a quilt for her hubby
  10. Began hand stitching the binding on Storm at sea
  11. Made a label for the Oz quilt and 2 hanging sleeves
  12. Attached the binding, hanging sleeve and label to Oz quilt, just need to do the hand work
  13. Got almost half of a hanging sleeve attached to Lover’s Lane.
  14. Quite a good turnout for the National Sewing Month!!

Books finished

  1. Blue Shoes and Happiness by Alexander McCall Smith
  2. The Good Husband of Zebra Drive by Alexander McCall Smith
  3. Design for Murder by Carolyn G. Hart
  4. Miracle at Speedy Motors by Alexander McCall Smith
  5. 3rd Degree by James Patterson
  6. 4th of July by James Patterson

I have one more Smith book to read and I am in the middle of the next Hart book in the Death on Demand series. And I am just whipping through the Women’s Murder Club series by Patterson – I’m almost done with #5. I still have a ton of books left in my queue to read, but I think that I enjoy these types of mysteries more than sappy ones. Either that or I am spending too much time stuck in traffic and listening to books on CD is the only real way to pass time during that! :)

How’d you do this month?

Your September was VERY successful. My month has been full of flu and bronchitis. I worked on a fun Wool Felt Applique Penny Rug for my dining table. It is finished except for the lining. I an ongoing post on my blog since this was my first wool project. Won't be my last I really like working with wool.

No wonder you're always tired. You can't possibly have time to sleep. I get tired reading your monthly accomplishments. Good luck with the quilts at the Indy Quilt Show. Make us proud. Don't forget your mom's birthday is coming up.

Heavens to Betsy! That is a huge accomplishment list! And that was your restful month? I am impressed! I read the Women's Murder Club series and like it a lot. Also I enjoyed a few other Patterson books. But now I'm into reading quilt novels. Finished all of Jennifer Chiaverini's and they are fabulous! Thanks for sharing your accomplishments, it's an inspiration!
