Day 260

And we’re back! I needed a weekend to recover from my weekend. What’s been going on around here? Besides a friend’s wedding, a father-in-law’s 80th birthday and associated cake making, the Highland Games, a butt-numbing three hour parade, an awesome guild meeting, some sewing (oh blessed sewing, how I love you, how I’ve missed you), track meets, field trips, and oh I don’t know laundry and groceries too…

  • I made some blocks to send to the Ottawa MQG for Fort McMurray.
  • I’m still on a polaroid block kick. I’m up to 36 so far. That would be 9 tickets in the draw at the guild meeting but what happens if I don’t win? I would be so very bummed so I’m thinking of not sharing mine, just making loads and loads for myself.
  • I hand-sewed the binding on a quilt during the parade. #publicactsofquilting
  • I bought some fabric for the border on a group quilt.
  • I finished a quilt! That will get its own moment in the sun later this week.
  • I’m getting going on my May mighty lucky challenge. I started strong with these monthly projects and then I slid. Slid right into “not doing them.” So that needs improving.

So that is my recent life in a nut shell tidy blog post. Hope you are all well!

Day 253

Lots of fabric today…a couple more polaroid blocks and I started six blocks for #quiltsforfortmac. That effort is being co-ordinated by the Ottawa MQG and Stacey at SloStudio.


They’ve asked for red, blue, green, yellow, and white, all colours from the Alberta flag.


Trimmed everything up tonight.

I am loving SO MUCH this use your stash business I’ve been trying this year. I highly recommend it.

And the mailman brought me FOUR envelopes today from the facebook mini-charm swap. Lynn F from Ontario bless your generous heart! She sent me 77 squares instead of the usual 50. I’ve received 17/29 envelopes so far and only four people have sent duplicates. So that’s much better as well. I am looking forward to the end of the month when I combine all the squares. And to using them in a quilt. That too.

So all in all, a very fabric-filled, generally happy day. Here’s to many more!
