So I got this wild idea about going back and reading my Summer of Fun goals blog to see how I was doing. I have been having a summer of fun, maybe a little too much fun, there are quite a few things on that list that haven't happened, and with less than 2 weeks left until Labor Day (my official end of summer) several things that aren't going to happen.
But here are a few things that I hope will happen.
Yo Yo Update.
I'm up to 27! Yes, I've added 6 since my last update, which was over a month ago! (me, hanging my head in shame) I have enjoyed making the 27 yoyos that are in that vase, and let me tell ya', they're perfect! The center is pulled tight with hardly any hole, the edges all align, the ridges all swirl the same direction. If there was a yoyo making contest I could give any one of those to the judge and just dare her to find a fault! That being said, I'm no where close to filling that vase by the end of summer, and there is not a yoyo judging contest in my neck of the woods, but I hope to add a few more. And yes, I think it's looking good for Amy who guessed 128.
I've kept up with Sherri and Sinta's Schnibbles sew along with Leap Year in June and Hubble/Hubbel for July. For August the pattern is Dimestore and I'm using these Phenomenal Fall charm packs by Sandy Gervais for Moda. The dot fabric is my background fabric.
I'm going to finally have a fall table topper for my kitchen table!
I've got the pieces now I just need to put it all together,
summer is not over until I have Northern Lights done.
Same goes for this sewing machine cover, even if I have to stay up 48 hours straight Labor Day weekend, I'm not facing September 4th without this cover on my machine!
Dawn at First Light Designs has a great start on hers, and it makes we want to make mine all the more.
So with two weeks left, what's on you Summer of Fun To Do List, you better get hoppin'!
