July / August Goals

Facebook Cover Collage 4

Well, if you keep your goals really modest you can achieve them, right?  That’s what I did for July, and that’s what I’m doing again for August.  Summer is in full swing here, along with traveling, and entertaining friends and family.

July Goals:

  1. Baste Handy Dandy quilt.  Yes!
  2. Begin quilting Handy Dandy.  Yes!
  3. Make red, white, and blue star blocks for Kat’s Covered in Love July/August drive.  Yes!


August Goals

  1. Finish quilting Handy Dandy.  (This is a large, heavy quilt, and I don’t always feel light dealing with it.  I’m pecking away.)
  2. Bind Handy Dandy.
  3. Make a baby quilt from a “Moon and Back” panel for my shop.


My best wishes to all of you.  I hope you’re sewing and finding peace where ever you can.
