August
(in review)

1.  Spend quality time with my super grandsons 

Playground Fun...







Backyard fun...



Kidz Village...






Sesame Place...

Hiking...






First Day of Preschool...



Vacation...






I did not go on vacation with Ryder and Logan but I really enjoyed the pictures they sent.

2.  Piece, quilt, bind and label at least one "Quilts for Kids" quilt.  Attend the Quilts for Kids workshop at Pennington Quilt Works

I pieced two quilts this month, but Annie is still in the shop,  so I was not able to finish either of them.


3.  Attend Saturday Sampler workshop at Pennington Quilt Works


All of the blocks for this quilt have been completed.  The next Saturday Sampler should begin in November.

4.  Attend August Strip Club at The Village Quilter

Strip Club was scheduled for August 29th.  My plan was to attend until I read online that the date had been changed to August 22nd.  The problem is the date change was not posted until August 23rd.  
ARGGGGHH!!!
How annoying!  When I contacted The Village Quilter
they told me they decided to change the date.
It might have made good business sense to let the people in the class know they were changing the date.  Just saying...

Oh well.  Here is the quilt that was revealed at Strip Club...




This is the second month is a row I have missed this class.  Hopefully I will be able to get to Mt. Holly soon to get my fabric strips.



5.  Organize and host our annual Family Reunion

Our reunion was a great success.





6.  Attend my friend Melissa's wedding.
