Quilting

August, 2019 (Project List Update)

We’re only a week into August, and it feels like this month has been going on forever.  Anyone else feel the same?

It’s interesting networking with people all over North America (and the world!) to see the different shifts everyone goes through each season.  In the U.S., lots of kids are either already back in school or heading there soon, but here in Canada, it’s still the middle of summer vacation.  School won’t start until after Labour Day in September.  Not that it really makes a difference to me since I don’t have kids, but still.. I find it fascinating.

For me, August marks the last month of “normal” before things really start to pick up and we prepare for the holiday season.  I’ll still be able to quilt and create during the winter months but I’ll also need to dedicate a lot more time to recharging my emotional batteries and taking time for myself.  Retail at Christmas is no joke, y’all.

Y’all, without my Quilter’s Planner, I’d be up a creek without a paddle.  The project pages are fantastic for keeping track of everything!  And it’s SO dang rewarding crossing off a step.  Now if only I could stop adding new projects to my list… but I guess I’m just getting a head start on my 2020 project list! 😉
