Charming Girls Goals for July and August

Seriously, I have so many things I want to get done in July and August that I doubt it is humanly possible!  LOL.  But, all the same, I am going to try.  At least by over goaling, it leaves me some options. 

Goal 1-  Finish quilting my Schnibbles for the contest and put the binding on it. 

Goal 2-  Make another Camielle's Bag this time out of LOVE by Amy Butler.  EDITED 7/1/10:  I may opt to make a Phoebe Bag instead.  It is a new pattern I'm itching to try.  It is free and you can find the link here.
Goal 3- Make 2 bags of my choice out of this new fabric I picked up.
Goal 3- Get the quilt top done for Plan C out of Attitude Girls. 
Goal 4-  Sew on my sashing and border strips to my Pinwheel Quilt Along.
Goal 5-   Make 2 Birdie Slings one from Moda and the other from Free Spirit.
Plan 6- If Baby cooperate, finishing the center square and putting the blocks/borders together for this baby quilt. 
Goal 7:  Make this little wallet (Koin Keeper) for my bag partner.

I hope to get a head start on some Christmas presents here, as you can see. 

We also have many fun family events planned:
1.  Buddy gets to go to 2 days camps (one is a camp I attended as a kid, the second is a soccer camp he wanted to go to).
2. I am going to help my mom a bit with cleaning out my grandmother's house.
3.  We hope to go camping if things work out. 

We've already had quite a bit of family fun this summer:  the boys went and watched Karate Kid, Buddy and I went and watch Toy Story 3, Buddy and I are working on our own version of a children's picture book, Buddy and I have went to Splash Village twice, and we had a great time watching fireworks last night.

"Camille's Bag" looks like a good bag pattern. I am in the mood to make a couple bags and am checking out patterns for them.
