August ends although not summer

Lily's Quilts
August has ended but I'm not sure our summer has, the week started off with mid 30's, followed by cooler weather, even a 20C yesterday but it's rising again and we're due 26/27C for most of next week, so I really think Summer's staying :O)

I looked back at my blog and realised I didn't get much done in August, just 4 finishes...but I did buy lots and lots of fabric, lots of dies for the Sizzix and have great plans for September.


I got the hexi globe upto applique onto the backing stage, I basted (well glue basted) about 150 hexagons, finished Hello Kitty cushion and finished off the Bowls.  I participated in the bowls with Borders blog hop and the Blog Hop back to school giveaway :)






In September i'm hoping to get the globe bordered and ready for quilting, decide if i'm making a cushion with my hexi's or what I'm doing with them, get my bee block done and I've got a Halloween project I'd like to progress with.




I may have a new distraction though from 24th September,  we're not sure if we're getting the top one (Bonnie) or the bottom one (Clyde) yet, they were abandoned outside the dog's home at 2 weeks old with their brothers and sisters, the dog's home put down puppies of that age but luckily there's a rescue organisation that foster pups and dogs until homes can be found.... these were the only 2 of the litter to survive.  Their 5 weeks old and can come to us in 3 weeks, the girl is probably more suitable temperamentally with our big boy lab but the boy lab is the cutie, we're divided the girls want Bonnie, the boys Clyde and Clyde is sorta reserved anyway...more news in the next week or so.

I'm linking up to Fresh Sewing Day, go check out some of the linky's, there are great finishes for August.

  3. The Puppies are gorgeous - we have just adopted a cat, but being a cat has disappeared - unfortunately into the wall so no real chance of going looking for him. Unfortunately you have missed out on this round of the EPP Bee - but there is likely to be one again next year - maybe 2...

  6. Oh you have to have them both - a dog needs a little friend, and two are far less trouble than one..... Well OK, that's not true! But they are so cute I wouldn't be able to choose!

  10. Love the pups I had Poppy from 8 weeks and loved it except for the chewing no matter what I gave her when I came down in the morning the skirting board and then the wooden cabinet would all be up for grabs I tried painting them with mustard and being mostly Lab she would like that off then chew. I would not change her for the world. Great finishes new fabric is always good.
