A Stroll in the Garden

It’s a sign of wisdom that seeds don’t squander their energy all at once, instead calmly waiting until the time is right.  ~ Midas Dekkers’ The Way of All Flesh’ in ‘Romance of Ruins’ “

August OMG 2018

My sewing goals for August are the same as they were for July. 

I am keeping it simple, since I am working six days a week; split shifts.  I can do things between shifts, but when evening comes, all I want to do is be a couch potato!

I will be piecing three 5 inch blocks for the Squared Away Sampler project.  You can see my progress so far this year by clicking here.

I want to complete six more fabric pages of my President’s book.  I made good progress last month, and I am sure I can do the same in August.  I really want to get this project finished, but it is still a snail’s pace for me.

President's Blocks

On Ringo Lake still awaits squaring up and binding.  Not a goal, but a bonus…maybe I can get the quilt squared up this month.

On Ringo Lake

Like much of the country, my home climate has been hot, hot, hot.  It is very difficult to keep the garden green.  I do have pics that I haven’t shared yet, so here are a few to enjoy:
