September’s OMG plus other goals




This project has been in the making for 3 months and this is as far as it has come.   So this will be my primary focus.   I’ve stalled because this will take thinking and doing some unfamiliar things.   All those spots in the photo on the left are little twinkling lights. Perhaps linking up to Elm Streets One Monthly Goal will give me the push I need.

OTHER GOALS:  September’s sewing/quilting goals will be more modest as we have much work to get the sheep and pastures set up for breeding.   We also will be finishing up the gardens in the next two months.  Grapes are set to start picking in another week and tomatoes, cucumbers, and other items need to be harvested and put up.   Then there are the new greens for winter which are just peeking out of the ground.   Hopefully, we will get the water and propane lines finished that we started.   Then we are still waiting for the big dozer to come in and clear more land that will be put into pasture.   So the next two months will be extremely busy.

2.  I haven’t chosen a project yet, but there will be one for Hatched in Africa

3.  If there is time, I’d like to get another of the Sunbonnet Sue quilts quilted and bound.

TODAY:   I occupied my time picking up some bananas at the grocery and two 30 mile round trips to pick up the grain that I had ordered.   It comes in 40# bags and I was on my own today.   So I was pleased to find that I could handle the 26 bags and get them where they needed to be.

I am also doing a fair amount to studying to find exactly what these sheep need to produce the best wool.   It seems there is some controversy on this, so I’m doing some research.

  1. That snowman is cute! How big does the project end up being?
    I always think that the summer is busy, but the fall is just as hectic – lots to harvest yet, and then put up. I’ve started pulling dying plants out of the garden and composting them. Some of the produce is still working hard to provide “fruit” – our Brussels sprouts are still very tiny – I doubt that we’ll get anything edible from the plants this year, and our leek won’t be very big either; they were both experiments this year, so I’ve at least learned something from them! Plus, I have a large quilt laid out on the living room floor – it has to be assembled today! The daughter that will be receiving it needs to sleep on the living room couch tomorrow night, and there’s no way to get there right now…
    I’d never thought about feeding the sheep in order to affect their wool…

      It’s small 28 x 36. Just long on procrastination
      I think there is more work finishing the garden and produce than putting it in. Our Brussel sprouts and watermelon didn’t do well this year either. Tomatoes, cukes, zucchini, peppers and cantaloupe are all doing well. And I think it is harder to work in the heat.
