Of my list I was successful in a few things (so much easier to find the positive in life.)
1. ) I got a quilt finished - my crossroads quilt got completed.
2.) I did all my RSC blocks this month. The color of the month over at Angela's Saturday Rainbow Scrap Challenge link up was bright and light green.
3.) Tiny Tuesday blocks - I missed a couple of weeks but did make a few blocks this month.
4.) Step 2 of the Bonnie Hunter mystery Celtic Solstice from last fall is done - 100 chevron blocks.
5.) Move more - Once the kids got into school I have been doing great at going to walks in the morning.
6.) Applique a Century Quilt block - almost done with this. The second blue flower part will be put on tonight or tomorrow night as well as the yellow circles. I'm counting this as almost done..... or will be done by the end of the month.
Lots of time this week was spent researching vehicles and test drives and dealing with salesmen. I have spent way too much time in car dealerships and really hate all the sales hoopla but...... I now have a nice new Honda CRV - EX sitting in my driveway and am all done with dealing with the van accident from last Saturday. Just need to add it to the insurance policy and we are done. Thankfully Greg has had no pain in his back or neck and the kids were not in the van when it happened.

My goals for September.
1.) Test a pattern Starlight Starbright for my blog friend Joanne. I tested her Quilters Scrapbook pattern in January which is available for purchase at her site. It was so well written and went together like a dream. I can't wait to play with my fabrics and her pattern this month.
2.) Applique the last Century Quilt block and put the top together. Well, get the block done anyway.
3.) Continue my RSC blocks in the color chosen for September.
4.) Tiny Tuesday blocks from the Civil War Diary quilt.
5.) Step 3 and/or 4 of the Celtic Solstice Mystery. I started the orange and green four patches for step 4 yesterday with the 20 minutes I did get to sew this week.
6.) Walk every morning M-F for 30-60 minutes after dropping the kids to school.
I may add some more hand work in (spring flowers or hand quilting) but we'll see how the month goes =).
Linking up with Kathi for the Laundry list link party. Please join us. All you have to do is make a blog post about some goals you would like to achieve for the month of September and link up this weekend. No pressure to finish those goals... but sometimes having it in writing does keep you focused to get things done.
