2013 TOTALS August

Time seems to be flying by so fast! 

My grandson started pre-k in mid August!  He is growing up way too fast!  The first two weeks of school are only partial days, so I was on Nana duty till Mom got off work. :)  We had fun reading, watching cartoons, playing ball and eating ice pops to stay cool!  We even kept him on Friday nights and were able to take him on the rides and two county fairs!
A three-day trip with my family to OH to ride the roller coasters (the family not me-I went shopping at a LQS) and a couple of two day out-of-town trips for training meetings for community groups I belong to filled in the month.

While traveling, I brought along and made some progress on my cheddar bowties and Spring Wall Hanging and finished two of my knitted dishrags.  Now that I am home, I am working on sewing the Step 7 flying geese and cutting fabrics for Step 6 of Orca Bay in hopes of having a quilt assembled by October!
