August Moon Day 1: Intentions

How have you treated yourself this year?
Have you kept your intentions?


Wow, aren't these questions a goldmine?  After all, the year is only 3/4 of the way through, and i still don't really know how I'm going!

My health has been good this year, so obviously I must be doing all the right things there - I did make myself a promise that I would not go into hospital this year so that is going very well. Only 4 more months to go!!!

Alan and I love our quiet life here in paradise, along with our good friends and a laugh a day with them, we are so lucky to be older and more grey.  Lots of others don't have this opportunity.

Yes I have definitely kept my intentions this year - the intention to only use fabric from my stash comes to mind.

I have done that well so far, if a little slow: No I was my cross + and x quilt:




He lives in over the back seat of the car now.

No 2 is my scrap squares and strips quilt:



Still to be quilted and bound, but the piecing is finished.

I'm also hand piecing the Green tea and sweet peas quilt, that is a long term one, that one!!

I have also been able to spend a lot more time with my beautiful grand children, trying to make up for 6 years without them.  That has been a wonderful success. 

So all in all, I must say that my intentions have been fulfilled this year in a very good way.
