Started the month off right by catching up with a former Blue Cross co-worker...Jerrie and I hadn't seen each other for 30 years!  It was wonderful to see her again!

Then, of course, on the first Thursday, I joined my friends at Quilt Guild to hear Frieda Anderson - she was entertaining and so talented! Click on her name to go to her website, it's worth the time.

The following weekend we went with friends to see Shiloh Rules, a play about Civil War reenactors - amateur, but relevant to today's current issues regarding the conflict...

The 13th was Dave's birthday - we started out at IHop and then went home and watched whatever movies he wanted to see for the rest of the day - no working on projects!

On the 15th, I went with Reid to the Stitches Texas show - fiber and accessories - the budget took a hit at this one! We had a great time shopping and talking to the vendors.
The next week, Dave built me more shelves in my studio - I realized I had boxes of fat quarters that hadn't seen the light of day in months (maybe years), so I needed to get them out and in front of my face...there's a bench in my studio that can't come out because it encloses duct work and there are doors there into the crawl space over the bedroom, so we couldn't block them...so he built the shelves around the doors and on the bench:
Cool, huh?
And as you can see, I NEEDED them...
I love them! and the top shelf holds a small collection of stuff (not looking to have more, so this is sufficient).

Toward the end of the month we were lucky to get Norm over to help Dave replace 1/2 the fence - it took two days and looks so good, the rest of the fence looks downright dowdy...but replacing the other half will have to wait a while!

Art for the month:
Finished up three more flower bags from the Omiyage book:

Looking forward to October!
