CGQC Goals for September/October

My long term goal is to work on only one big project.. (i.e. a large size quilt) and a small one (i.e. table topper, wall hanging, schnibbles) at a time. That way, hopefully, they won't get put in the UFO basket... ...

So having said that my goals for September/October will be as follows...
I will continue to work on this project (notice I am not committing to finishing it) Synchronized Spinning ..
For my small project I will make this wall quilt by Timbleberries called Pumpkin House.. (This was on my to-do list last year ). What inspired me to make it this year, is that I have joined the Moda Layer Cake club at the Fat Quarter Shop and this month it was the Awesome by Sandy Gervais ( I love mail)

I will also commit to do some hand quilting on this
my "Two Bits" Schnibbles

I have some travels scheduled so I will bring with me my travel project.. The "Orange Peel" which came with me all the way to San Antonio Texas and will be travelling to Gatineau Quebec at the end of September.

In October I will be travelling again but this time it is a road trip with my sister Simone to Amherst Nova Scotia for the Fibre Festival. The "Orange Peel" will not be coming on this trip as I will be attending a workshop given by designer Karen Neary on this
her Meadow Song Quilt...

In October also, I will assist Kelly with the which also means I will be planning my project for my secret partner.

This is my favourite time of the year and I seem to be more organized and can better commit myself to I have booked regular appointments for massage therapy and at my "Ésthéticienne" , Darlene for facials and pedicures even though I will soon have to put these on

and these will be put in the back of the shoe closet!Since Hurricane Earl our weather is much cooler therefore Hubby is in the process of closing the pool for the winter so I am committed to these and going out every morning for a brisk one hour walk ....

Of course activities with family and friends are always priorities ...and a big part of my "Serenity" and self care.
