August in the Sewing Room... A Recap

August sewing was great. Though, I didn't accomplished a massive amount of projects (as I had wished for) I'm very happy. I managed to finish the Alphabet Quilt for my goddaughter just in time for her birthday. Then, after much planning I finally moved my sewing room to a sunnier location in the house, covered some tin cans with fabric to use as storage and tried English paper piecing for the first time. 
I hosted my first giveaway and started a new quilt, which I hope to finish very soon. 
I'm looking forward to September and hope to get a lot of sewing done.
