and onwards we go....

I have been enjoying using Melody's White Rabbit idea and writing a list of all the things I want to do in the next month and then marking them off as I go.....


My list for September is in my left side bar and I have a page here where I paste my list at the end of the month

of course not all of it gets done and I often need to carry over... but I do get a great sense of accomplishment marking them off...

If you'd like to include White Rabbit then Melody has the button HERE and she gives us a new one each month....

One of my monthly projects is my Butterfly Garden quilt which I am wanting to do as a BOM... last month I didn't quite finish but here is my second block ...



and some close ups.....






today I am working on cutting and stitching the mini blocks for Block 3... this is how I use my board so I don't get mixed up with the fabrics ....


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

.... I knew &&&&&&&  from #### who has a blog and likes to stitch is looking forward to seeing what I have made in the Spring Swap ... it is finished now and I took it outside for a photoshoot....


pity the wind blew just at the moment of the click

It's in the wash and I will try another picture tommorrow....

but I can mark it DONE on my September White Rabbit list

I am linking up with Sandy's Show and Tell
