Susan: August Block Finished

I finally got the last of the embroidery done, and the blocks sewn together, yesterday. I did, in fact, do most of the remaining stitching on my road trip. Fiona, you asked about the trip. I went about 205 miles south of me, to Atlanta, Georgia, (which is going to have lots more of the wind and rain from Hurricane Irma than I will get!) for a special purpose, and didn't get to play in the local quilt shop in Marietta, where we stayed, because the hours they were open interfered with why I was there. Still, I stitched! Yay, me! Now I'm not behind ... for at least a few weeks. LOL

I love your block - it looks gorgeous! Great you were able to take advantage of travel time and get your stitching done. Pleased you will be safe but what a worrying time for so many.
