Wow, where did the last month go? And Summer..... a few more days of unusually hot weather here and then the chill in the air will start again. I've actually seen a few autumn colored leaves fall to the ground already... It is way too soon for that.

Sadly, I only got one quilt quilted and bound this month and DH's quilt pinned for quilting... but nothing else! I'm blaming it on hot weather (too hot upstairs to sew!) and feeling a wee bit tired at night due to the pregnancy. Yup, pregnant again and due March 31st! So, the kids will be 13 months apart. I'll have my hands full next year. That also means I really need to get a few more quilt tops pinned (before a big belly make it difficult) and quilted this fall while I still have a sewing room to play in.

My plans this month.....
1.) find my hoop so I can start hand quilting DH's quilt. I'd like to do one block a day...but we'll see. Or.. go to Michaels/Joanns and get one! Done!
2.) Plant the new bulbs and flowers I have being delivered in the next couple of weeks and expand the flower beds a little. Also get another truck of mulch and spread among the 8 flower gardens.
3.) close up the veggie garden mid month and expand/till it so it is ready for next year.
4.) finish my chelsea 'play' bag in cream and blue.Done
5.) Make a fall chelsea bag
6.) Put together the pinwheel quilt top and machine quilt it... will need to create a top and bottom border to make it big enough to cover the inside front door to limit drafts this winter.
7.) Quilt and bind the black/red BOM quilt. freehand stars and loops I think.
8.) Start a mystery quilt at my quilt shop on the 20th.... Need to go pick out my fabrics too!
9.) Aidan's water class starts Saturday the 13th... First one down!
10.) Play with my thangles and make a fall tablerunner....
11.) Make the BOM for the quilt guild meeting on the 17th... one to share and one for me! Done
12.) Quilt the charity quilt and finish the binding.
We'll see how well I do.

Went out to camp on Sunday as the power company had cut down 6 trees my Dad had marked and the guys were busy cutting and splitting and shredding things all day. I got home and was sick as a dog for the night and was a little better if I didn't do much on Monday. I guess it was a 24 hour bug that hopefully is all gone. Will try to take it easy today, since bowling starts tonight and I don't want to miss it.
Ok, off to shower and then need to start some laundry and update the grocery list.
Hope everyone has a good day.

Congrats on the new pregnancy! I was wondering when I read something on a different post. What great news!!

Congrats on the baby! I'm jealous, too. I loved being pregnant. I'm impressed with your plan, too. My plan during the first months of pregnancy was just to make it through the day without needing 3 naps. Very impressive list. Congrats again!
