With August here, that means fall is going to come before too long! It has actually been a pretty mild summer here in our area, but I am still ready for the days when other people want jackets and sweaters to wear!
With the heat I have not spent a lot of time quilting nor working on my August challenge. I did participate in the August card challenge for Operation Write Home, sponsored by Our Daily Bread Designs. We were to use the colors brown, green and pink on a card. This one let me use one of my seldom used Cricut cartridges - Twinkle Toes.
I was also able to send another package of cards to OWH in July. Now to start on the next group. It is really easy when I get challenges and suggestions every week from them. The trouble is taking the time to go in the craft room uninterrupted and get some done.
My August quilt challenge came up as the stained glass squares I had been working on. After spending one day to make a square, only to have it turn out too small, I went back to the computer and printed out new complete sets for each stained glass pattern. I went back to make the third square of the pattern I had already started and ---it came out too small too!!! (I had accidentally used one of the old patterns that had not been thrown away.) :-( So I am thinking this month's challenge is going to turn into a block of the month procedure for 2014!
