Goodbye July

July was really a great month. I had lots of time to quilt, expanded my horizons on my HQ and spent some time with friends and family. In addition to all that, the weather here this summer has been just gorgeous. I am loving the temperate summer days that darken into cool summer nights. We have spent some time outside just about every day this month and we've gotten accustomed to eating dinner on the deck, which is really a treat.

This month, I got in 22.75 hours of sewing, the exact same amount as June! I finished:
- Snow wallhanging
- Last block, assembly, and quilting for Nick's QOV
- Assembled top and binding for 16 stars - I am waiting to show a picture of this one because I still need to stitch on the applique sections.
- Quilted my mom's oriental drunkards path with my micro handles
- Made a pink penguin bag for Patti for my 100th post giveaway
- Made a wine tote for my friend Bonny for her birthday (and it was filled with a bottle of wine!)

My goals for August:
- Finish and label Nick's quilt
- Label and mail my Mystery Quilt Re-do, which is now a baby gift
- Make progress on some UFOs
- Start a couple Christmas/fall birthday gifts
- Get at least 2 quilts done on the HQ

I have a good start on August since my mom and I got to sew all afternoon! Pictures to come later in the week of our project.
