I didn't get to work on this afghan last month, but I got the two pine tree squares done this month. They were both finished in record time.
Now that the weather is getting cooler, I don't mind stitching on the afghan. When it was hot out, it was hard stitching with all that fabric on my lap.
Next month I will stitch another animal square, but I am not sure which one. Stay tuned to find out!

I finished the September Flip-It Block by Lizzie Kate the other
evening. It was an easy, fun stitch, which cheerful colors. The entire piece is coming along nicely, border and all. Three more blocks and it will be finished.
I have no idea what I will do with it when it is finished, either frame it or make a wall hanging I guess.

I was recently offered tickets for Church Basement Ladies I was curious about this show that was advertised as a musical comedy that mixes the silliness of Nunsense with the homespun humor of Prairie Home Companion. It stars William Christopher (who played Fr. Mulcahy on M*A*S*H) and is based on the best-selling book Growing Up Lutheran by humorists Janet Letnes Martin and Suzann Nelson.
I must say, it was a delightful production. All though I didn't understand a few of the "Lutheran" jokes, I had someone with me who could explain it all to me. I would describe it as the Lutheran version of Late Night Catechism.
So, if you have a chance to see Chruch Basement Ladies, I highly recommend it!

The children's group, youth group and adult folk dance group all performed on Sunday afternoon and did a fabulous job! The little ones were too cute and delighted the audience. The youth group amazed everyone with their intricate footwork and precision, and the adults, well, they had fun and actually remembered the dances. A good time was had by all.
The volunteers in our organization's food booth and beer tent were kept busy all weekend. I believe Saturday evening, they went through over 160 barrels of beer in our tent alone! (thank you Viki for that correction) I don't have the numbers yet on how many bratwurst were grilled and sold, but I remember being told that 1800 lbs of potato salad was made for our food both. That's a lot of potatoes!
