August 2013

August 2013

I made a few things this August, more than I expected. I also made a lot of pickle dishes but there are more to go.

Crabapple Jelly

I cooked a lot in August, I've been eating better, and I made beautiful jelly and also jam.

my gazebo

And I spent a lot of time in my gazebo, under the walnut tree, but I am back in the city now.
Lily's Quilts
I am joining everyone at Lynne from Lily's Quilts for Fresh Sewing Day, see you there.

September is always a month of renewal - back to school and work, starting the fall. I am excited to find my socks and sweaters and enjoy it.

Best,

Leanne

I just want to lounge under the walnut tree and hand stitch with some fresh baked bread smothered in jelly. Love the arrow blocks.

You really did accomplish a lot last month....I agree about lounging under the walnut tree,sigh. As for looking for my socks...that's not gonna happen until the snow flies....let's hope it comes a little later this year.

Love your crosses and churn dashes (really everything, though :) ). Beautiful mosaic!

Debbie said...

Dare I say that gazebo area is just delightful...I think I'd sit there eating bread and jam like Karen!

Jennie said...

You've been busy - I love the idea of stitching under the walnut tree!

Katy Cameron said...

That does look like such a lovely location to create :o)

So many great projects and that gazebo looks AMAZING!

You had a beautifully productive month! Wow.

YOu made some beautiful things in Aug. I love the colour of the jelly, so softly summery pink.

You’ve been so busy! Love that spot under the walnut tree!

Anne said...

Wow, you got lots done in August. Afraid I wasn't nearly as productive. I like your comment that Sept is a month of renewal . . . I can renew my goals for getting things done.

Becca said...

Ohhh... you have a walnut tree? Are you able to eat any? Down here, we have pecan trees. Not in our yard, sadly.

I love watching your works on instagram.

Love autumn but not yet please!

Great stuff made there and what a stunning relaxing place to do it in!

Trying to resist starting an economy square/hourglass quilt but it is hard!

Rachel said...

Looks like your August was awesome, at least as far as sewing is concerned.
