Fresh Sewing Day and Small Blog Meet

I wait all year for August and it goes in a flash.  August to me means summer holidays, sunshine, swimming and, this year, not a lot of sewing.  Well my daughters did some cross stitching with these gorgeous little kits from Abakhan:


And time was spent in the pool:


And in the pool bar:


And some time was spent parascending (I went up too - three times):


Oh and possibly some time was spent in the non-pool bar too:


And after all this sunshine, I did throw together a quilt on my return using the new Sansui Japanese line from Makower:


And up close...


And what about you?  What have you worked on this month?  Any finishes?  Maybe a mosaic of everything you've been doing?  One favourite thing?  Link up at the bottom of this post to share what you've been working on. If you do link up, how about visiting at least four of the other blogs who link up - two above you and two below you - and stopping to leave a comment as well as visiting back anyone who visits you. As always here's the button to grab.

  9. That is the best description of August and exactly what I did!
    But I am a complete wuss when it comes to heights and have avoided parascending for years, even when friends have done it!!!
