I've enjoyed a scrappy summer - sewn many fun projects from my fabric scraps.

This summer I've filled in rainy days and evening with sewing and quilting. I've completed a couple of growth charts, sewn a wall hanging, done some extra quilting on my wool baskets and made quilted envelope pillows for my sister! On my list of to-do's is Kim Diehl's snowball quilt... Love her fabrics and designs!

In between sewing projects, I have been enjoying some lovely weather by paddling in my kayak to different islands nearby and doing some exploring.

It's been a busy summer with flooding here in central Kansas. I have completed a quilt for my daughter's graduation that has a quilt on both the front and back but right now I am working on a quilt to give to the neighbors who helped us evacuate the farm equipment when the flood invaded the sheds with 2 foot of stinking flood waters in the late night hours. God Bless them!

I've tried to balance fun with the kids and quilting, probably lots more playing than quilting, but that's play, too, so I guess that's why my summer was amazing!

My summer is not yet over. My hubby and I are still on vacation, it won't end until middle of September. So far, summer has been good. Before leaving for our trip I accomplished a lot of quilting, mainly EPP. I did complete 2 wallhangings. I also successfully organized a big family reunion which was a great success. All in all its been good, weather has been a little bearable this summer though, surprisingly. Thank you for the chance to win. I really like snow babies. I gotta have it, so I will purchase it if I don't win.

We have had a lot of visitors this summer, and while they have been here I have been squeezing in some quilting. I'm working on a couple of sampler quilts, which have been the perfect projects, since I can complete a block or two at a time and feel like I am making progress.

Patti said...

For some reason my sewing slows down in the summer months...I think because I'm busy outside enjoying our short summer or we're off doing something as a family (hard to take the sewing machine camping LOL)...I did enjoy making a few new bags/purses for myself and scored a ton of fabric from a yard sale(that made for a great summer!).

Sallie said...

Went to my first quilt retreat and had so much fun - can't wait till the next one!

What a busy summer! Filled with family and getting settled into a new home. And then The Beaver Creek Fire evacuated more than 2,000 homes so our home became a Refugee Center of sorts. Quilting took back seat for awhile!
