Is it Really August Already???

Hoolay smokes, I can't believe it is August.  Where is the summer going??  My kids start school in 16 days!!!  (Although, I have to say, I am kind of looking forward to that :)  Then maybe I can get some of these WIP's moving!!    I have been loving the summer and spending so much time with my family as well as extended family . . . but I think my sewing room might be getting cobwebs in the corners :)

I am super happy that I can just about put together my Sew Bee Create quilt.  I am only waiting on 1 block. I found some backing at my LQS.  It was on a major clearance.  It doesn't match perfect but I couldn't pass up the price.  Now I just need to decide how I want to mix and match the stripes for the sashing and the binding :)

And the Braided Irish Chains continue to have a little more work on the each week.  I assume these pictures look about the same each week but rest assured, there have been a few more seams sewn and pressed ;)  They are kind of my, when I have 3 minutes here or there project :)

And so I don't forget anything as I begin this mass Sewing push starting August 16th (which happens to be my Birthday, yup, sewing all day would be the perfect present :) . . . Here's the rundown :)
