This one's for you Barb!

I've been reading all over the internet that September is National Sewing Month.  How convenient that it falls so quickly after my full retirement.  Now I don't have to wonder what to do.

Bonnie of  Quiltville's Quips & Snips!! has asked quilters to join her in celebrating this month by devoting an hour a day to hand sewing.


I decided it was time to pull out this quilt that's been neglected for far too long.    I'm off to a late start for the month, but the weatherman says that, beginning tomorrow, the high will be about 70 for the next ten days.  That should be cool enough in the evenings to have a quilt on my lap.

There'll be days when I won't get in an hour, but I hope by the end of the month my total will be 30 hours.  So my challenge to you - my favorite sister - log more hours than me and I'll give you a dollar for each hour you do some hand stitching in September.

If you want to see what Bonnie and other quilter's are accomplishing, there are links on Bonnie's September 3 post.

Happy Stitching!
