...because I don't have any goals for August!
July 2023 will forever be known as "Goldfinch month". It doesn't matter what else I finished in July, The Goldfinch is done and ready to hang in the exhibit in September.
I did actually finish a few more things including 2 crochet blankets and I quilted a quilt for Mom. She got it bound this weekend and it will be delivered to her Granddaughter later this month. I used up 4 balls of yarn, gave away 4 and didn't buy any. I expect I'll use a lot more in August. I do a lot of crochet in the evenings on vacation.
I even made a batch of pet beds for donation and dyed myself some new tshirts for the summer.
I had several goals for July that didn't get done and I'll just seed the September list with them:
- make placemats for my brother
- placemats for my nephew
- quilt a guild fundraiser quilt
I'll add the following:
- start quilting the Red Sunset quilt that I pieced on vacation last summer
- quilt 6 veterans quilts
- -quilt some donation lap quilts
