The Dog Days of August....a review

August has been hot, hot, hot and I love the heat!
We wait soooo long for summer to appear, and this year has been especially difficult after a long, cold Winter and a cool, wet Spring.
So, bring on the sunshine and heat!
It probably helps that I have air conditioning, so I can spend time sewing in comfort!
I finished a few favourites in August....
Marcelle Medallion was a huge accomplishment!
Falling For Stripes was a quick and satisfying finish as a pattern test for M-R!
Lots of bee blocks, Zakka Along 2.0, do. Good Stitches and fun crafty stuff.
I'm a bit of a slacker when it comes to documenting a month's worth of sewing.....so ...
Here is my mosaic for August!

1. Falling For Stripes, 2. Falling For Stripes-back, 3. Happy Hexagon Trivet, 4. Happiness Circle August 2013, 5. Pansy for Veena, 6. Knit1 Purl1, 7. Marcelle Medallion, 8. Sleeping bag pouch collage, 9. Rolling Stone, 10. Sleeping Bag Pouch #2, 11. Marcelle Medallion, 12. for Cindy

So, I'm linking up at Lynne's for 
Fresh Sewing Day!
Come and join in!

I so have to try one of those sleeping bags! Are they difficult?

I fell off the fresh sewing day bandwagon loooooong ago, so you're further ahead of me when it comes to documenting monthly finishes! You had a great month Patti!

Karen said...

Looks like a good collection of projects to me. Isn't air conditioning the best when you want to sew!
