So...just where did August go?????

My goodness! Time be flying by! Year is winding down!
No post from me for the whole of August!
Well I can assure you I have been busy. ;-)

We have enjoyed the wonderful summer veggies and fruits from the local farmer's market.
Cooking out on the grill.
Spending time with family and our darling new grand baby, Olivia Grace!
We hosted family Sunday for Labor Day. 
DH cooked ribs and chicken on his big barrel grill.
Loads of sides along with Peach Cobbler with Vanilla Ice Cream and Hummingbird Cake desserts.
Sadly I was so busy chatting and having fun did not snap pics! SLAP!
Yes Aunt Dot got after me on that one! hahaha!

Here is Olivia in her Va Tech Hokie outfit!
Look Out!! Cuteness over load!!!!
Go Hokies!!! Yes they won Saturday!!
They do not know they have a new  sweet little good luck charm! ;-)

On sewing front one of my projects I made was a big bag for a birthday gift.
Bought the fabrics at Bella's when I met up with Alice last.
Very good size. Made as a beach bag! Started out with one way in my mind but morphed into this bag instead! Pieced and quilted the fabric strips. Really liked how that looked so may have to do some simple gift quilts like that too. Works with the right showy kind of fabrics.
Very roomy inside. I did load it up with goodies...flip flops, beach towel, mug, hair stuff, note pad, even her own personal battery fan! Was in a hurry and forgot those pics!  Gave it to her Sunday. She loved it!

Made some other projects but will share those in another post! Will try harder to spread out some posts this month! More birthdays coming and of course the big CHRISTMAS gift making season!!!
Not sure how many I will get made but a few most definitely!!

Temp to be 98F today!! Chance of thunderstorms every. single. day. this week!!!
We are now getting the hot and humid weather we should have had on those surprising nice cool nice days last month!!
I am ready for Fall!!!
Time to pull out the Fall decor , my fav, and get thinking of all things pumpkin!!!
So on that note think I will go pull out some runners and quilts!

Thanks for hanging in with me!!!
Have a grand day or evening which ever time zone you may be in!!
