Boy, another month just flew by! I really don't need someone to tell me I can start another project, but I love Barbara's theory and instigation for the NewFO Challenge. Yes, it is OK to start something new - yes, it is OK to set it aside unfinished - yes, you can pull it out some time down the road with no guilt to any of it.
My August NewFOs were some fun play with scraps and hexies - two Christmas runners - my Monthly Doll Quilt Swap (9-patch theme) - and another mini from Konda Luckau's "Simply Charming Minis".
And some flimsies of former NewFOs were the Lantern A-Long, Star Surround, , and Catalicious quilts.
And I had some finishes - a July NewFO - Willow Weave with Aunt Reen's Place and an older UFO - Large Twister pattern for layer cakes - as well as the Forest QAL.
Yes, I can hear some of you - that's a smaller number than other months. WELL, I did a lot of hand stitching during August which you will get to see at the Pin It Blog Hop.
And I played a lot with apples - apple chutney and apple sauce. Do any of you use Red Hots in your apple sauce? Love these little red cinnamon candies - they are great to add a little color and some spice. I remember popping a handful in my mouth as a kid, now one is enough!
September NewFO I am looking forward to a challenge with my Monthly Doll Quilt Swap, another Simply Charming Mini, the Everything Blue hop looks interesting (I have a LOT of blue fabric) as well as the Moda 'Size Matters' hop. And a couple of former NewFOs are at the finishing stage.
I will be linking up with Barbara over at CatPatches - be sure to visit and see what others have been up to.
EDIT**had to share this as it gave me a much needed chuckle when I came home today**
