August: Making Memories

Keeping Me Busy

Keeping Me Busy

I definitely underestimated the intensity of the summer months… I honestly thought I could keep up. But I admit defeat. No worries, it’s just time to dive back in and get to work. And the monkeys in the picture above promise to let me have a few minutes here and there when they are not neck deep in trouble.

Here are a couple of snap shots from our summer fun….
We’ve been back home for a week or so, and we’re settling back into a routine again. Now that I’m back at work…. the first thing on my list is, of course, Supernova!

Are you ready to see my July block that I sent to Sandra Louise?

Well, it’s bold, right?

If you are ready to send out your August block to your partners, you’re probably wondering what the topic of the month is.

During this blazing hot month of August, the last month of the summer for making memories, your assignment is to sit back and think for a minute. Think about your childhood summers….

Our memories make us who we are. They provide us with a sense of self. This month, Sandra Louise and I invite you to write about your best childhood memories and share them with your partner in the Supernova Swap. You can share one, you can share five… whatever you’re inspired to do.

When you share a memory with a trusted friend, it’s like giving a little gift, a small piece of yourself. These are the gifts that truly allow friendships to deepen and flourish.

I hope you enjoy receiving each other’s beautiful blocks this month. And take good care of each other’s memories…. that’s what friends are for.

    Welcome back Stephanie! I was thinking about you during my last weekend beach trip and hoping you were having a great time in DelMarVa with your family. Your supernova block is awesome. Wishing you some sewing time in your near future!
