Hello August

I cannot believe that we are already into August!!!! Where has the summer gone? I cannot believe that my son will be entering the 5th grade in just a couple of weeks. But he has had a blast with camp all summer. And I am highly jealous of his tan :)

I haven't gotten much done this past month. I was able to finish up 3 charity square for Charity Cross-Stitching for Sfpsfc & Sick Children in Need which will be my last 3 squares for them as they are closing their doors. They will still be putting together quilts which will take another year or so to finish but once those are done and delivered they will be officially done. I enjoyed my time stitching for them it gave me great pride in what I do. So I will have to find another place to stitch for in time but I think I will be taking a break of charity stitching so that I can get some personal projects done. The first square is for a boy's sports quilt so I stitched Baseball bat & Mitt from Cyberstitchers , the next square is for Building Blockmen quilt where I was lucky enough to stitch the Blue Musketeer!!!! This chart was donated by a member of the Charity, and the very last square is an Owl I think he came out so cute (and I'm not really an owl person) this chart cam out of Just Cross Stitch's June 2014 Issue.


This month I am going to be mainly focusing on my Mermaid SAL (as I am behind) and I am pulling out Echo's of Autumn with hopes of getting a good chunk of it done. I also have 2 charity squares for WOCS to do also. Here are my starting points for  Mermaid SAL and Echo's of Autumn:

I have also been secretly working on a blanket for my husband. I am attempting to make a C2C (corner to corner) blanket in NY Giants colors as that is his favorite team. His birthday is in 3 weeks and I am really hopping that I can get it done by then seeing the only time I get to work on it is when he is at work and I am not working. But it would also help if he would stop hurting himself to the point that he gets off of work for a week too lol. Hopefully I will have a picture to share on my next post.

Have a beautiful AUGUST!!!!!
