August Fabric Budget

It’s been pretty quite here on the blog this month.  More is coming, but this has been a hectic month.  The old fabric budget is still on track.  Drum roll…

Just two scrap packs bought for the month.  Yes, I did have a major destash a couple of weeks ago.  That money didn’t go to the fabric budget, it went towards some other stuff.  I really didn’t need to pad my original $100 budget.  There are still lots of fabrics on IG under #thegreatfabricdestash and #greatfabricdestash.

My main sewing machine was in the shop this month.  That really slowed down the projects I was able to work on.  Instead, we got out and enjoyed all the wonderful things happening around Indianapolis.  The Indiana State Fair happens blocks from my house.  We picked a night of pouring rain to visit.  An indoor putt putt option kept us dry, mostly.

Wine tastings for a friend’s birthday made for a lovely Saturday.

My #quiltsforpulse quilts are still waiting to be quilted.  Knowing how I operate with deadlines, I will probably quilt this over the weekend and get it mailed on the last day to mail.  I don’t consider that slacking, rather I operate well under deadlines.

The neighborhood I grew up in has been undergoing some revitalization.  Lovely large older homes line wide streets and have a rich history within Indianapolis.  Over the years people and businesses moved out of the area and it went downhill quickly.  Some of my best and worst childhood memories happened in our home on the Eastside.  With the area changing my parents moved me to the suburbs.  What’s interesting is watching people my age moving back in, renovating the homes, and raising their families where I grew up.  A wonderful festival happens every year and this was just a snapshot from it.

Most of August was full of shenanigans with Pdawg.  A good subtitle for August could be Pdawg and The Parks.  Sounds like a pretty cool band name.


He was just being himself.
