WIP Wednesday and ALYoF September Goal...

...a layer cake and a charm pack
had been stitched into square-in-a-square blocks,
placed in a pizza box and pretty much forgotten about.

Today I opened up the pizza box and started sewing my blocks together...
This will be my September goal for have it quilted and bound.
This is what it looks like today...
I'm using Moda's Snowman Gatherings II by Primitive Gatherings.
August was busy with family visiting...
mid August my sister, niece and great niece
arrived on Monday and headed back to Canada on Thursday, about 7 pm.
  We shopped till we dropped but still had time to put 
a few quilt tops on the long arm!
For the past 10 years or so we had a week in August...
it was the 'girls' week, it always included sewing and shopping.
DH is such a good sport!!!

This past weekend our son, DIL and grandones 
came to visit before they head back to school.
Yes, there was more shopping but no sewing. 
Our flower beds were wanting some attention...
they needed mulch...5 yards of mulch ordered...delivered and spread...
everyone helped...from start to finish it was about four hours...
...thanks for all your help!!!!
It seemed like such a big job for DH and myself, we just kept putting it off.
Another job finished as we slowly get the house ready to sell!!
