Can I Do It

I have kept to my goal thus far, of at least one finish per month.  Nothing yet for August, and it's already the 13th.  This stack will be two bow tie quilts, everything is all cut out and ready to go.  You can't see them very well, but at the bottom of the stack are the (30) 12 inch completed what I call circle bow tie blocks.  Here are 6 of them.   There is nothing done about backs yet though.  By the way, that little tool on the far left is one of my favorites.  It's just a little approximately 1 1/4 inch wide wallpaper roller, but it is also my heatless iron for doing my seams on string blocks and such.  It works pretty well.
This quilt is for Tucker, who was born a few days ago.  Since this picture, the top is a finished flimsy, the back is done, except for the label, and the binding is done.  Also, the pillowcases are completed for the siblings.   The question is, with the way that I have been working on one thing and then the other, can I finish something by the end of the month?  Can I accomplish my add on goal of finishing all three by the end of the month?   I have 2 1/2 weeks to find out.  I've already googled C'est la vie  and am practicing it, just in case.

This baby rabbit hopped out of a bush while my Grandson, Micah and I were mowing the yard yesterday.  He caught him and was going to try to keep him, but then decided he better put him back.  He was adorable though.

My grandson, Micah, is pretty adorable too, he's my birthday buddy born on my birthday, only 50 years later.  He's my daughters son, and another one of her sons is my husband's birthday buddy, born on his birthday.   These last two pictures were taken on my blackberry, so they are a little sub par, even for me.

Wow, how neat about the birthday buddies! Pretty amazing coincidences! Good luck with the one quilt a month goal!

Keep on quiting I am sure you can get at least one quilt done this month! Cute bunny and lovely grandson. Must say, I love his red hair (I am a fellow redhead) In Oz he would have been called "blue" which was the bush nickname for redheads. Sadly these days most young kids have never heard that!

The good news is that you are making progress on many projects. They are not all sitting stagnant and becoming WIPs! I am in the same boat this month - too many temptations. Love the hair - both of my sons have beautiful red hair!
