Oh My! Another Month?

With only one day left (tomorrow) for the month of August and a busy schedule for tomorrow, I thought I'd get in now with my checklist.  Even keeping it small, I can't cross everything off ... where does the time go?
One Xmas Item

TTS ~ Pear Tree

Seasons Of ~ July block

Work on a UFO ~ Horse Quilt

Calendar Quilt ~ finish top (Sept)
(no longer a deadline)

Complete workshop top (Nov)
Hot off the press is this 'Seasons Of' block from July.
I do know where some of the time goes ... part way through this post and I get a call to go help out in the paddock.  Now I'm back to finish, only 3 hours later. Now where was I?
This month has included a major effort in the garden, getting ready for the warmer weather.  Lots of thick mulch to help keep some moisture in ...

Just ducking away to check on dinner ... won't be long :)                             Ok ... back again.

Do my roses look happy?  I promised them I would take better care of them this season.  The mesh squares are to keep the chooks from scratching.

Time to head back to the kitchen but I do have some stitching waiting for me this evening.

Happy soon to be Spring.

PS:  I still have some photos to add to the 1 Xmas Item page as soon as I can get a chance.
