Busy August


I swear, August is about the busiest month for me. We usually have our annual camping time with our friends, the kids are getting ready to go back to school. Band uniforms need to be altered, flags need to be made or fixed for color guard, and it's hot too.
If that sounded like a whine it was! ;-)
Right now I am missing most of the group camping since I can't take much time off from my new job. yes, another whine.
I did manage to finish making more of my swap blocks, they sort of snowballed, which is tough when they are stepping stones and bricks and not snowball blocks at all. Hmm, come to think of it snowball blocks would be a good alternate setting with these........
On the home front, my oldest daughters cat is ensconced (but not happily) in my bathroom. He is recovering from getting "fixed" and de-clawed. Not a very happy camper. Throw into the mix my cat, and the dog. Why do I have my daughters cat? Well, she got a new job, bar tending on a cruise ship in Hawaii. Wonder if she will still think of OUR summers as hot? ;-)
I also wonder if she will bring me fabric.............

Pretty blocks, snowballs or not! LOL! You certainly DO sound busy! Don't forget to relax when you can.

Poor you missing the camping, and poor puss being sick in the hot weather. Why has he been declawed - is he an inside only cat? Just curious.

I do believe you got the short end of that stick! The least she can do is bring fabric!

Those blocks look like a lot of fun -- and she'd BETTER bring you back fabric!

The quilt blocks are very pretty. I hope you have some time to enjoy the last part of August.

HEY! Which daughter is in the Color Guard? I was the Color Guard Captain of our Color Guard. I think I got the position because I had the loudest voice... Anyway, your blocks look great. I will finish my second set tonight. Oh, maybe only the cutting, but I will get some of them done...
