Summer Vacation 2

Winter Welcome in Queen Size is done and posted online. Thank you Kathy Schmitz for designing such great fabric! The centre of the quilt is the published pattern which is now available at your local quilt shop or online from me. The Winter Welcome pattern retails for $10. The expansion to Queen Size is free but you need the original pattern to complete it.

I also finished a quilt for my youngest son which I have been working on since Spring Quilt Market. I used a fat quarter pack and panel of Funky Monkey and I put Minkee Dot on the back. After convincing him that monkeys are still cool for 10 year olds, he has decided that he likes it.

Summer Vacation in July

It’s been a perfect day! We are up at the lake with the family except my husband who is unfortunately at home working until tomorrow. The day started with fresh baked muffins and friends visiting. We spent hours pouring over the plans for our new cabin which is being constructed next door. After my friends left, I managed to shave several years off my Wii fitness age (well below my real age) and then tackled the hill on my bike without stopping that I have been working on for the last week. I then went swimming with the kids in the lake which was warm enough as long as I floated on top and didn’t move around too much. I then made chipotle chicken nachos for dinner which was my invention and the kids devoured in a manner of minutes. I even managed to spend some time working on my Winter Welcome expansion pattern and reading a new book. Summer is Great!
