August Accomplishments

August was another successful month for me. I didn't get a goal set for OMG, so I worked on things for the fair. 
I made a wool bag for the SD Sheepgrowers Association meeting contest and then they will auction it off for scholarship money. 
I also finished my sample for my piecing basics and machine quilting class at The Sewing Center. It's part of a series of beginner classes we're doing. 
We had an UpCraft event at the Sewing Center in August, so I made this Supply Case 
Finished my #creativemakersupplycase
It's made to hold my smaller rulers when I travel. 
The inside of my #creativemakersupplycase to hold small rulers.
I also made a couple Sweetpea Pods for the girls at work as Birthday presents. 
Jackie's birthday gift. A sweetpea pod in BHSU colors.
I'm staying caught up with the GE Designs Dangerous Block of the month. This is block 4. 
I also finished the camper quilts from the panel I had. I'm hanging these in our camper. 
I started and finished a star quilt for my co-worker for Christmas. He loves star quilts and wanted a neutral/brown one. This is a wall hanging. 
These are the more true to life colors of it. 
I finished four of the blocks for the Farm Girl Vintage sew along. 
As I was cleaning/taking everything off the walls in my sewing studio, I found a few more pieces I had sewn as leaders and enders for the Buckeye Beauty quilt. I ended up with 8 more blocks. Only 19 more to go and I have the HST's done for 16 of them! 
Last night I finished the two Farm Girl Vintage blocks that are "due" on Friday. I'm so glad I am caught up again.  
I also worked extremely hard piecing Goodnight Irene block pieces. I have those ready to sew into blocks. I am hoping to do it on my day off on Friday, but we'll see how far I get. I need to have the top done by Saturday the 10th.

You have some very lucky coworkers. The star quilt is really special. I'm finally caught up with Farm Girl Vintage too - just in time for new blocks. :-)
