August One Monthly Goal and Future Weekend Stitching

July was such a dismal month in terms of sewing room time, just too much going on in the rest of my life.  I'm hoping that August will be better.  Drama Teen starts her senior year of high school on the 18th.  With her back in school, travel should die down a bit, though I think she wants to do a college trip one weekend in August.  Even so, I'm hoping to get back in the sewing groove this month.

That brings me to deciding on what to tackle for August's One Monthly Goal



Looking at what needs to be done by May of next year, I'm thinking that it's time to get really serious about finishing up Zombies in Paris.  I've got three more quilts to finish by next May, so it would be good to get this one done now.

The last 5 hearts are all in various stages of assembly, so it really would not take too much to get those finished.  Then all that's left to get to the finished flimsy stage is to sew the blocks together and add two borders.  That should be doable.  So getting Zombies to the finished flimsy stage is the plan for August.

  1. August will be a good month to wrap up those zombies. Here is wishing you lots of good quality sewing time. I have to write up my post for the August OMG. So you are ahead of me.
    Hugs,

  2. sometimes summer is a hard time to quilt when you have kids at home. Here I am no kids at home and not grandkids near by - I can quilt whenever I want!

  3. The zombie quilt is wonderful. There's always so much to do in summer, I'm scrounging for sewing time...or maybe it's the other way around...trying to stop sewing long enough to do everything else. I love summer, but I'm always exhausted by the time it's over. Does DT have any thoughts on where she wants to go to college? A fun year ahead of all of you.

  4. One month surely sounds doable, Kate! Isn't it amazing that senior year is here already for your daughter. Is she planning to stay local for college?

  7. I know you can finish up this flimsy. Summer is a difficult time for sewing, things are always popping up. It's good that you've set a relatively small goal with only 5 more blocks needing finished. You can do it!! :)

  14. I go back the 15th...so strange to think a new school year is already upon us. I think you can easily get your Zombies done (AUgust is a long month) and then look forward to creating all those dorm quilts!! (I always love that idea!)
