August's One Monthly Goal Completed

Heading into the last week of August I am happy to say I have completed this month's goal of finishing this little sewing pouch. Here is my original post.

Though twice this month I sat down to complete it and I had a problem. The first time I can't find my copy of the instructions so I was sure what I was doing. It got put aside. A week later I found my instructions and tried again, this time I couldn't find my purple thread which I used on my journal cover. I should have put it back where it belonged. So on the third attempt all the stars aligned and I was able to finish it off. I did make one mistake but it's not that noticable I hope.

So now it is ready for me to use.

I have linked my post with Elm Street Quilt post, so pop over and check out what else was acheived this month by the group and I will  start thinking on what I want to set for Septmenber. I will be off on retreat for 3 days and I am wondering if I set myself a slightly larger goal for September. What do you think?

What I have been Stitching

This year I have had trouble finding time to blog. Now it is really good that I am busy but I wish I could do a little more blogging.

So I thought I would pop in and just share what's been under my needle recently.
Two new panels have arrived in the shop this month. They are totally different, one for the reproduction lovers with Meridian Star by Karen Styles a panel and four bolts from the range.
With this panel I just  added an inner border and pieced a piano key border to go around it.

The second one is from In the Beginning Dragons range. Now in I had two panels to play with and 4 bolts from this range. So I was able to create a larger quilt perfect for another Dragon lover out there.
The other project that has been taking up my time is my Vintage Rose Quilt. We had the last workshop last week and we are all piecing our quilts together. So of us have borders still to go on but it is good to see good progress. I still have another 10 border blocks to make but at least the centre is together.
I am tempted to leave it just like this but since I have started on the border blocks I may as well continue. Don't want to waste the fabric I have cut up, do I?

One Monthly Goal- August's Goal

We have reached August. July was a bust month, I didn't get anywhere near July's goal. I wasn't sure what to tack this month but I made these blocks for a pouch project from our embroidery club. So I would like to finish it before we meet at the end of the month.

So the plan is to turn these in to the finished zipped pouch.
I have linked my posted with Elm Street Quilt post so pop over and check out what everyone is working on.
