September's almost here

Again August has been a bit of a quiet month for me on the creative front. I think I've just been a bit too ambitious with my lists of things to do given the actual time that I've had to spend. But here's the confession anyway.
  • Work on Birds Eye View - Done
  • Finish 4 crochet blocks for the new cushion - Done
  • Participate in Rainbow scrap challenge - I finished off my yellow chequerboard blocks if that counts
  • Make 2nd PIF gift - I've made a good start on this now and it will get finished next month
  • Finish Chapter Six for c&g - thanks to more machine problems this has not happened, but I did finish chapter 8 instead
  • Work on two 'secret gift projects' - Total fail on this one these never got off the ground.
As I now (fingers crossed) seem to have a fully working sewing machine back. I'm going to devote most of my stitching time for September to catching up for lost time with my city and guilds course. If you are interested you can follow what I'm up to over here, but I will set myself a little list.

  • Cross stitch - I'll be working on some Halloween themed stitcheries
  • Finish PIF gift this has been hanging over me for 8 months now and I want to get it done :)
  • Make postcard for 'Out of the Box' swap
  • Make postcard for 'Give it your best' swap
If I do manage to find some extra hours in the day, I have plenty of other WIPS on the go that I can fill my time with.
