The Moment When Summer Turns to Fall

It's going to take quite a bit of time before anything like fall happens in southeastern Penna. It's 86F today. But September always says fall to me. Even though most places start school in August, September is school days, cool evenings, and crisp apples. Those we have. And the dude is making them into apple butter. (Someday. Tomorrow, he's making peach salsa, or peach jam. He's still deciding.)

August

  • send Fair and Square sqaures by 8/11 See them here.
  • bead the Toy Gatherer See it here.
  • finish LHN Dog House Sampler See it here.
  • finish Noel ornament Didn't even touch it. I think it's because I was stitching the prize.
  • sew two messenger bags and a set of stash and dash bags I managed to cut them out. I've got the evidence right here. You'll have to take my word on the stash and dash bags, they're pinned but not sewn.

September: Back to Me! (Because I think I set out to do some selfish stitching this year...)

  • 10 hours on Folk Art Threadkeep
  • 10 hours on Curly Q Ewe
  • Emerald Mermaid (Sunday SAL with Michelle)
  • travel project: Monthly Mania
  • Work on DD's RR
  • stitch anniversary prize
And I guess it would be good if I finished those bags I cut out.

Oddly enough, I was thinking about selfish stitching just a few moments ago. I had planned to do some serious selfish stitching, but somehow I've gotten sidetracked. Again. That seems to happen far too often! LOL!

Well done on your achievements for August, and good luck with your September goals!
