Stitching, knitting, reading, life…whatever catches my eye

Theme-a-licious August

Altius August

Embrace the Olympic motto–Citius, Altius, Fortius (Faster, Higher, Stronger)–by elevating your mind.  It’s the perfect time to learn something new!  Or maybe achieve some goals…

I’m borrowing from our favorite Themer, Ms. Heather and creating events for this month’s goals.  Note:  the timeline for this is August 1-31st.  No two week craziness!

Presenting the Five-MultiColor-Rings-of-Goal-Achievement!

I know, it doesn’t have quite the same ring, but we don’t want any cease and desist letters…
