Changes are a coming....

 
Most folks set goals for the New Year,
but over the years, I have gotten
in the habit of setting my goals
September to September...results of
being married to a school teacher.
 
I am also starting a new chapter in
my life. For the last few years, I
have been babysitting Grandchildren
nearly full time. As of this week,
I am done with babysitting...kind
of like retiring, I guess. I am
ready to make some changes
and doing some things for myself.
 
My fabric stash busting has
not changed in the last while.
I have sewn quite a bit, but I
had to purchase specific fabrics
for the projects.
 
My Slow Sunday Stitch project:
I am back to working on my
Trip Around the World.
 
 
Hopefully, the weather will cool
off soon, so I do not wilt under a
large quilt top.
 
I am making my list for my
next adventure, which I will
post next week with my
fabric stash busting and Hand
sewn Sunday post.

Your TATW quilt is growing beautifully. Seems you have some exciting changes coming. Can't wait to see. I like the idea of Sept to Septgoals. That's probably because my birthday is Aug. 31.

Deb A...I am going for a King size. It is nearly a queen size now.

Enjoy your new freedom - now you can get on with stash-busting. Your TAW is big already; there can't be too much more to do!
