August at Home

Standard

Since I’ve been gone so much this summer, I’m happy to be able to stay home for most of August. I have lots of much-needed cleaning to do and I have some ideas to freshen up the house.

I renewed my interest in sewing in July when I made Audrey a cloth picture book

I also got a good start on Audrey’s quilt. I’m making it larger than a baby quilt since she’s already one.

I have still been knitting, but not as much as usual because someone made it quite difficult!

Audrey liked looking at pictures of Mommy on my iPad.

Last week we went to the annual Acme family picnic, toured the plant and looked at some things Jeremy’s been working on.

Amy, the girls, and I went school shopping at the outlet mall where I found a cute purse that has inspired me to make some similar purses. The girls have been busy learning cheers and I’m anxious to watch them perform.

Well, back to cleaning the kitchen – – or – –
