I made my August quilt early in the month--Kakudo, a free pattern on the Kona site--and was feeling pretty smug. I even used the Moda Marble I ordered to go with my focus fabric (it wasn't the color I had a bit of, but it matched the focus fabric). And then I realized that Kakudo wasn't the August UFO!! Oh, well, I'm sure it was on my "b" or "c" list. Now it's moved to the longarm stack.
Neither picture really shows the "true" color--the poinsettias are bronze and gold and the orange-looking fabric is actually a cinnamon color.
Then I needed to make a QOV for a brave young man who stepped on an IED in Afghanistan and who has already undergone 14 surgeries--and has many more to go. I feel so sorry that he has to go through the pain and suffering, but his attitude is so good. I used the Carpenter Star pattern--it is pieced, quilted, and mailed.
I also made 2 10-inch blocks for a quilt to be given to the lady who has been the guiding light for our quilting guild. Her husband has Alzheimer's, and she and her son will be putting him in a care home. It has been really difficult for her.
Anyway, I'm making a Cherry Cobbler now and have 2 loaves of zucchini bread cooling. It's a busy time of the year--how did I get everything done before I retired?!
