August Happenings

It has been a bit since I’ve sewn this month, so thought I would give a quick update on the Happenings around here.

We were off on vacation, driving from Michigan to Northern Canada.  Then flew by float plane to a fishing lodge in the middle of nowhere.  This was our ride.  Check out the Amazon Prime package.

Here is our sunrise with the moon on the side.

Fishing was great.  Didn’t see anyone other than the 20 or so people from the lodge all week. Great food, great fishing and great quiet time.

Got home Wednesday and headed yesterday to the AQS Grand Rapids Quilt Show.  Had to do a bit of shopping.  Not too much, just a few things I had been hunting.  Thread restock, Me & My Sisters and some blues and whites for some Blue RK Blocks   I am a bit late to making these blocks as I didn’t have any stash of blues.  Can you believe that not darker blue stash.  Fixed that and now will be doing some blocks for a sadly needed great cause.

I am also working on getting my August OMG finished.  I have 2 blocks done and many more to go.

    Nice times,–fishing and quiet time and then come home for some fabric shopping. The Me and My Sister Jelly Roll will go well with their other collections (wink). I’m going to check out the Blue RK Blocks.

    What a fun vacation! What a beautiful sunrise! I bet it was so peaceful. And you got to come home and buy fabric!

    Glad the fishing was good , and waking to a sunrise that beautiful is worth the trip! I think I recognize that Fat Quarter bundle in your stash. I have one residing on my shelf. I also have a charm pack of that mini charm pack of yours, right above the red buttons. So, I’m liking your stash, obviously!

    Your vacation sounds lovely, and what a beautiful picture of both the sun and the moon! The shopping looks like it was fun! Good luck with your August OMG.

    It’s amazing how that piecing makes it look like curved lines. The fabric are great.
