SEPTEMBER GOALS. I didn't do as well as I would have liked, mainly because I chose a rather complicated and time-consuming chart for the round robin. The other factor impeding my progress was work ... this being the beginning of the academic year, there was a lot of overtime cutting into stitching time. On the other hand, I did go a long way toward catching up to my various ornament making goals.
