The last Monday in August has rolled around. It's hard to believe that we are 2/3rds through with 2021. I've been thinking of Chrismas presents and two more birthdays this year. I've got a decent start on the ornaments I make my 4 grandchildren but I need to actually make new progress after getting one almost done. Hum, maybe that needs to be in my goal list!
I excelled at checking off all of my goals this week. In fact, I did so well I made a sample block of a new project too. Sorry, no pictures of that yet. Here's last week's list.
✅Finish Blue basket -- It took a long time as it kept being dropped. Here's the empty finished basket and the full basket. I forgot to put the handle on but it's just a matter of dumping out the scraps and lifting up the loose fold over binding and sewing the handle on. Easy, but I don't want to have to dump and refill the basket... maybe this week.
✅Begin aqua table runner
✅Work on Ombre blocks
✅Finish knitting baby blanket This got completely finished this week. I'll be giving it to a neighbor who gives them to a group who makes donations in our community. I really think the color is a bit brighter turquoise then what shows up here. But I'm happy it is done. I've got at least 4 boxes of yarn and yarn bits. I'm hoping to knit some up into projects I can give away.
✅Mail Verdant Serenity to Ca.
Now here's what I hope to work on this week.
Finish baby quilt started in June
Quilt Table Scraps Aqua table runner
Work on Ombre and RSC blocks
Quilt doggy tumbler quilt
Finish the front of one ornament
This weeks to do list doesn't seem very long. Hopefully I can get all of the items done on it.
Not much else new on the home front. I realized in early September I can get my Covid booster shot. I want to have it by mid September as I am going on a quilt retreat the first weekend of October. It seems the smart, easy thing to do for me and the friends I want to have fun with.
I'm linking up with my regular parties: Oh Scrap, Monday Making, and Design Wall Monday. After barely getting my own blog posted over the last two weeks I really enjoyed reading a bunch of blogs this part week. I hope you have some time to check in with these linky parties.
Happy Quilting All! Bonnie
