And done.

I hung my head in shame Saturday when I realized it was the last day of the month and I'd only given my do. Good stitches blocks a passing thought during the month.  But I had company over Saturday and spent most of the day with family Sunday so I couldn't even begin them until today.

Luckily  Meesh picked a fun and easy (enough) block for August.  :)

The Hearts Around block.

It's simple flying geese units and some half and quarter-square triangles.  But isn't it fun?  I can't wait to see this quilt come together.

If I hadn't lost focus and sewn one of the blocks together wrong, I'd have been done start to finish in an hour give or take a few minutes.

Next up for our Rad group are scrappy string blocks and I know I can handle those.  I plan to do them this week before I get distracted again.

I have never before completely forgot about bee blocks.  What about you?  Have you done it?  How do you keep yourself on track with commitments like this?

p.s.  Lindsay over at Craftbuds is hosting Craft Book Month with lots of fun projects, giveaways, etc.  Yours truly is participating in the blog hop on Saturday.  If you've completed any project out of any craft book this year, you're eligible to enter to win, so head over and check it out!
