Did everything get Finished kind of Day?

It always seems that at the end of the month my blogging get behind as I'm trying to catch up with my sewing list and its no different this month. 

Here was my list for July:
Goals for July:
Finish Owl Quilt
Squared Quilt- sandwiched needs to be quilted and binded
Sisters Ten BOM July Block
Zakka SAL: Stay caught up as well as start paper piecing for flower quilt
We Bee New Blocks
City Sample SAL- Finish up to Block 27
Curve Medallion QAL- 8 Blocks done
1and Half Quilt (Still a UFO): Squared and sandwiched

Here's what I got done:
July 1
July 2
I didn't get everything I wanted to get done but I did add some finishes that weren't on the list:

The apron I was commissioned to make from a coworker, her only request was white so I added a few yoyos and lace on the neckline to make it special.

 I was also able to complete my Mother's birthday present.  An pillow was made with apples from the Bee in My Bonnet Row Along.  I had to guess on the measurements because they are no longer available until her book comes out but I think it turned out great.

I was also able o complete a baby quilt with the Patchwork Please! SAL.

Finally I got this block done earlier this month but never showed it off.  It's the Megan Star for the Modern Block SAL.

August will be just as full as July was.  I really enjoy being able to look back at everything I got accomplished because sometimes you forget all that you've done in that what seems to be little bit of time.

Here's my list for August:
Finish Curve Medallion Top
We Bee New Blocks
City Sampler SAL- Finish up to Block 42
Zakka SAL: Stay caught up
1 and Half Quilt (Still a UFO): Squared and sandwiched
Squared Quilt- sandwiched needs to be quilted and bind (In the process of being quilted as we speak)

I've also joined a few more things for those slow sewing days (smiling real hard as I type this).
Triple zipper pouch swap: Mailing date August 17th
Low Volume Fat Eighth Swap: Need to be cut and mailed
Heather Ross Charm Swap: have two spots Need to be cut and mailed
Star Surround QAL
Double Wedding Ring Challenge hosted by the NYCQ

With all this stuff in mind I signed up to be part of a Market Day in September and a Fall Festival in October.  Hopefully I will able to make lots of goodies to take with me.  More on this later.  Thanks for joining me and hope you happy sewing.  I'm linking up with Amanda at Crazy Mom Quilts, Freshly Pieced, and setting my new goals over at Bitter Sweet Designs.
