It is amazing that it is already August!
School here starts very soon, August 17th for the students in my district. I'm not ready for summer vacation to be over!
However, it is time to set some goals!
As I mentioned in a previous post, we are having our kitchen renovated. The contractors are now finished (Monday was their last day) so now it is up to us to finish the little things we didn't contract out. Thankful that my hubby is very handy...it saves a bit of money! It will be my job to put everything back into the cabinets (we have been living out of boxes and the dining room table full of odd sized things since the end of June)..more organized and slimmed down than before! Hehe!
Here are a few picture so far (my kitchen isn't very big so it is hard to get good photos.)

As for my quilting goals, I mentioned that I was organizing my sewing room a bit and uncovered a bunch of 'made-fabrics'. My LQS had Victoria Findlay Wolfe come for a lecture and workshop. I wasn't able to attend the workshop but I did go to the lecture and trunk show! She is quite amazing! If you ever have a chance to see or hear her ~ GO! The lecture was based on her 15 minutes of Play book (before her QuiltCon win and her incredible work on double wedding ring quilts!)
I made these blocks after I was impressed by her story and work!
So my goal for August is to make something out of these blocks. A month to play with scraps!
I will most likely make more blocks as there are only 8 rainbow colored blocks. I did find one partially completed low volume block and 3 more orphaned low volume blocks (foundation pieced) that my daughter made when she made this quilt. Not sure if I will use them.
As always, I will keep up with the RSC, the Milky Way QAL, and the Grandma's Kitchen challenge blocks.
I'm linking up to One Monthly Goal for August over at Elm Street Quilts.
What are your goals!
