2017 Crafty Plan – August update

I cannot believe that it is the end of August.  Time is flying way too fast and I’m not happy about it.  I want time to slow down!  Here’s how much I accomplished this month.

  1. Quilting
    1. Celtic solstice – prep for quilting: NOT DONE
    2. Raining Cats and Dogs – hand quilt weekly – NOT DONE
    3. A Rainbow Garden – block 8 weekly – DONE!
    4. Civil War Diary Quilt – do a block each week – NOT DONE
  2. Knitting
    1. Continue knitting on my sweater “Kimono” – I do a row or two daily – I WORKED ON THIS PROJECT A LOT BUT NOT EVERY DAY.  I THINK THIS WAS STILL A DONE AND A SUCCESS.  FOR NEXT MONTH I WILL BE SURE TO BE MORE DETAILED IN TERMS OF WHAT I WANT TO GET DONE RATHER THAN JUST SAY KNIT ON IT EVERY DAY. I DID GET THE RIGHT SLEEVE DONE AND I’M CURRENTLY WORKING ON THE LEFT SLEEVE.
    2. Starting Point shawl – I do a row or two daily – SAME THING HERE – I WORKED ON THIS A LOT BUT NOT EVERY DAY.  I GOT THE CLUE #1 DONE ON THE SECOND HALF OF THE SHAWL.
    3. Knitting Expat’s August socks – DONE
  3. Cross Stitch
    1. Mama’s Bukid – work on this weekly – NOT DONE. I DIDN’T WORK ON IT WEEKLY BUT I AM DONE WITH ROW 11!  SO I CONSIDER THIS A DONE AND A SUCCESS.
  4. Bag Making
    1. Finish binding the Stash and Dash bag that I made in class – DONE
    2. Make another Stash and Dash – NOT DONE
    3. Buy the Teflon foot – DONE
  5. Clothes Making
    1. LAFS  – finish my pajama pants – NOT DONE

STAY TUNED FOR TOMORROW TO SEE MY GOALS FOR SEPTEMBER!\

Car Update – I got my car back yesterday!  I’m happy and we’ve been having a heat wave in Southern CA and the temps have been in the 110 degree zone.  I’ve been baking slowly in the house.  Now that I’ve got the car back I hope to do some work at Starbucks or the local library.

~HAPPY CRAFTING!

  1. So hard to imagine it being that hot where you are! I’m glad you have your car back and are mobile again. I think the heat would have prevented me from doing anything at all.
