It’s August 1st. My planner book is in a shambles. My cutting table is piled ridiculously high. My sewing room actually has cobwebs in the corners! My office is a mess. I can’t even begin to tell you how behind I am on just everything. Everything. No break in sight. It’s a good thing I love my job!
I did a horrible job of keeping track of the blocks I made this past month. Last month I said I would show you what I was making with the blocks I did last time, and I’m still not even ready to do that!
I made 5 more little blocks like these. I’m really anxious to start putting all these together somehow (I have been for a long time) but I simply can’t justify spending time on them yet. Soon, I hope.
I also started a log cabin quilt using this tutorial by Sherri at A Quilting Life. I love these so much. I haven’t yet counted how many I have done, and I don’t know how many I’m making, so I’ll add those to my total later when I know for sure, since I don’t want to lose track and accidentally count them twice. Please visit Sherri’s site and look around — she has soooo much cute stuff and some great tutorials!
I have a lot of new stuff coming up that I’ll be announcing soon, so I’ll also count those blocks as I finish, so I can be sure my count is correct. Please check back for some new patterns coming soon!
Now it’s your turn. How many blocks did you get made this month? Remember to leave me a comment or contact me to let me know your updated totals.
July was an insanely busy month, not only with quilting, but with so many other things. I feel like my summer just whooshed by all in one month, and I missed it. Here it is August, and summer will be winding down, and I feel like I didn’t really get a summer!
How about you? Did you get any sewing time at all?
Our new total for August is another 30 blocks, for a yearly total of 230. We’re heading fast toward that 350 mark. Some of you have already surpassed it, and I find that amazing — we’re quite a group!
I’ve got the Project Page updated, so you can check out how you’re doing.
The June prize package winner is Andrea, who checked in with 256 blocks as of the end of June. And I happen to know she travels a lot for her work, so this is an amazing number.
I’m hoping we all have a productive August — happy vacations, happy back-to-school, happy gardening, and happy stitching!
