Updates for the month

It's  been a very busy month for me. For a start my computer died. I am attempting to write this post on a new tablet while I wait for my new computer to be delivered.  It should be here any day now, any day.  They neglected to tell me when I ordered it that it was on back order.

Biggest problem with typing on the tablet  is that I can't see what I'm typing as I'm typing it. Oh well I'm sure there is a way around the problem I just don't have the patience this week to figure it out.

The month started with a trip. While away I needed to replace my phone and got this tablet for free  as part of the deal. For free I guess I shouldn't complain about the typing issues.

I spent time with old friends. Went with them to various restaurants, yarn and fabric shops. Sent home 17 pounds of fabric plus yarn. All of the fabric was on sale, Yahoo.



I also picked up and carried home in my checked luggage this cutie pie. All in all I had a great time.



I really needed a machine that I could drag to meetings and hotels and on planes. When I left home I thought  I'd be coming home with her so I brought some blocks with me to work on at the hotel.  I now have 450 of the 500 blocks needed for the Remainders quilt. 50 blocks per baggie.


I also joined the June  QAL  by Crazymomquilts for another quilt from her recent book No Scrap Left Behind. Can't show a picture of that because at the moment it's spread all over the sewing room.

I have also been working on my contribution to the  Christmas in July Blog Hop coordinated by Sarah  over at Confessions of a Fabric addict.  It stars on Friday and it looks like another great time to be had by all this year. There will be over 20 contributors and a QAL and a give away. I'm posting  on the 20th and I feel a give away right here as well.  Stop by and see what I come up with. This is just a sneak peek of what I have been playing with  for the hop.


I've also been up to some non quilting projects. I got some wonderful yarn to make a shawl for myself and actually got it started.



I also  saw a pattern for a knitted dish Towel that I thought would be a great hand towel for my powder  room. It's almost done.


And these fabric stars were made for a quilting buddy to give to her Honor Flight group .



Hope to see you here on the 20th. Til then be sew happy and enjoy summer.

  5. Busy, as usual, I see! I find it fascinating that you sent fabric home. Not enough already, huh? Ha, ha. I like your sewing machine, and I'm pretty sure another quilter at BC has one just like it. In any case, spending time with old friends would be divine. I can't imagine...
