We’re all going to say the same thing – how did it get to be August already? It’s Dirty Dozen Day – are you ready? I’m not sure I even remember what I worked on in July.
August Dirty Dozen Number is 10 – TEN.
August’s color is pink.
Your extra credit challenge is to use a fabric you’ve been hoarding. I am working on this right now. Maybe we should have this be part of every month. If you have any extra sewing time consider thinking about how to use your favorite hoarded fabric. Thank you for the photos I have received of your finished quilts. Here are the most recent:
And look at this! Lots of progress, wouldn’t you agree?
Before you know it I’ll be complaining that she’s all over me and I can’t work – haha! Do I hear any name suggestions? Needs to be a people name. No it cannot be Smokey – surely we can think of something more original than Smokey which also sounds like a boy’s name.
I’ll be having some out of state visitors this month – gotta get some food on hand! Today I have an appointment in Mason City and then it’s time to mow lawn again. Please tell me why it still keeps growing even though we haven’t had rain for a month now. The crops are just beautiful – it’s a sea of green wherever you look! Another 6 weeks or so till harvest gets underway.
Rick’s 6 week post op appointment is this week. It’s been a very long 6 weeks but he’s pretty much self sufficient now – he’s even driving. I’m going to ask the doctor why we were abandoned post op – I had no idea what was ahead of me in terms of being a caregiver.
This is what North Iowa looks like August 1.
Many of you have received your Oh, Susannah! book and you’ve enjoyed it enough to write back and tell me. Thank you! Books are always available for $20 PPD.
Look at this lineup of kiddos “reading” the pictures which is exactly what I had hoped for!
And Norma enjoyed her lily card that I sent her.
All of these quilts came home from the fair yesterday and had to be sorted, refolded and put away in about 6 different places. So glad it’s done!
Such a pretty day! This is the day the Lord hath made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it.
