ALYoF - August Goal

My excuse for being MIA in the blogging world- I've been elbow deep in unpacking/repacking, organizing, cleaning, painting, painting and more painting back at our house in Kentucky.  I have managed to sneak a little quilting in there along the way though.  I've joined the Texas Road Trip QAL hosted by Pretty Little Quilts and My Fabric Relish.  It's been so fun learning more about my great home state and putting together a GIANT TEXAS QUILT!!!!  We are a proud bunch, huh?
Deep in the Heart of Texas quilt WIP
Well, I have 3 quadrants done and while I'd love for my goal this month to be a completed, bound quilt, I know it's not realistic because..... WE ARE MOVING BACK TO TEXAS THIS MONTH!  Yep, most of our work on the house was to get it ready to sell.  Now we are just waiting for an offer.
My August goal for A Lovely Year of Finishes is to have the top all sewn together.  That's it!  If I get more done, that's awesome, but I'm eventually going to have to pack up my sewing room (I feel like I just got it set up!)  
Also, Paula @ The Sassy Quilter invited me on the Around the World Blog Hop so tune in next Wednesday for my post and who I look to as my quilting inspirations.  I can't wait to share with y'all!
