September - ALYOF Goal Setting

It's time to set my goal for September . . .

I have so many UFOs waiting for my time and attention . . . 

September is the start of a very busy year and constraints on my time due to some new commitments and some on-going projects.

So of course, I want to plan with all my responsibilities in consideration and still want to be successful in accomplishing my goal.

We interrupt your regularly scheduled program . . .

Sorry folks, but I didn't get to peruse my UFOs on Friday. The rest of Friday turned into a day of running errands . . .

Friday was Honey Do's birthday.

I finished gathering items for his gift . . .

I stopped at Walmart to pick up a package of velcro to finish Rocky's coat . . .

I stopped at church to assemble the bulletins . . .

I stopped at the grocery store to purchase dinner supplies and surprise Honey Do with a small birthday cake (we ate it before I could even think about taking a picture !!).

I ran to Honey Do's office to drop off a celabratory brownie that just ended up coming home with me because he didn't have time to eat it or was he able to bring it home on the motorcycle.

I packaged treat sacks for Sunday School.

I had planned on stopping at the library to print a pattern, but time got away from me.

Dinner . . . dishes . . . dogs . . . etc., etc., etc.

But I did manage to get something done.

I started from scratch - drawing off the design and shrinking it down. Erasing and re-drawing until I got it just the way I wanted.

I stitched the beak and appliqued all around the design. The eyes and lettering are all hand drawn.

The "wings" came from a leftover 9-patch square that I quartered and folded.

I still have to applique the white "label" prior to attaching it to the wall hanging, but you get the idea.

It was a lot of fun coming up with a cute and clever label.

Thanks for stopping by,

Wishing you a day filled with creativity.

So there'll be another ALYOF post? LOL I love your chicken - what's the label on? Your day didn't get away from you - you filled it to the max! Happy birthday to Honey Do, a day late.
