August - no no - Wish it were June instead!

The beginning of August is wonderful because it is still summer break for a teacher, but my three more weeks of freedom will pass too soon.  I love my lazy summer days with so much freedom with my time.  Does that make me close to being ready for retirement?  Too bad, I have several more years left in me.

August One Monthly Goal will be the same as my American Patchwork and Quilting PHD #10 which is to finish my Sweet and Simple top.  There are six rows total and three are done.  All of the pieces are cut and ready, so I really think it is doable.

Other goals for August will be:

Make 22 Masterpiece Blocks to finish the dashed looking section.

Make 8 House blocks for Color My World

Make the binding for Pastel Windmill

Finish quilting Pastel Windmill

Continue quilting Feathered Goose

Make a few more Batik Windmill blocks
