to do: set goals

September goals are much like August goals. I wanted to accomplish more than I could last month, so this month I will play a little catch up with my projects.

1. quilt pumpkin patch 

I brought this old ufo out of the closet, during purple month, for the rainbow scrap challenge. It was all in blocks. I want to finish this quilt this month, and, have it gone. I will need rows, and borders, and quilting.

2. quilt melba' s applique

I put this quilt together in January from 1920s blocks, and added a hexie from me for the center bottom block. I need to attach that and quilt it. 

3. make ode to joey top

I keep showing the letters, and, then the words, but, now, it is time to make the top.

4, start circa 1880

I participated in a swap last year of these uneven 9 patch blocks, and, I need to sew setting triangles to it and join it in vertical rows. One of the swappers has hers finished. the other swapper is making vertical rows. Obviously, I will be last on this one.

I can't believe it is September already. August was a pleasant month outdoors, and, it seamed that we made progress on a few outdoor projects.  And, most importanly, we had garden fresh tomatoes. I finished 3 ufos last month , and stayed current with my rainbow scrap challenge projects. My hubby and I visited Prophet's rock, 7 pillars, Adam's Mill, and Indiana Dunes State park. Yesterday, we celebrated our 46th wedding anniversary.
