Seriously we are already at the end of June!! Between graduations, year end concerts, weddings, yard work, nice weather and being a busy mom the month has just zoomed by!!!
Despite of how busy things have been around here, I have still managed to get quite a bit accomplished :)
First of all, a bit of an update from my last post. The contest that I entered, I won!! I was very excited to have as many votes as I did! When my package arrived from Rjr, I was so excited and surprised. A beautiful Fat Quarter bundle of their Summer Solstice line!! Oh it is so pretty! I love all the bright colors! Not sure what will be created yet with these beauties but I know I will have fun using them!!
Awhile back I joined a quilting forum called the Quilting Board. I love this Forum, all the people are so nice and very helpful. At this forum I joined in on a siggy block swap. There were 174 participants in this swap and people from all over the world. I thought that this would be so much fun and I was correct!! I am looking forward to getting my package back with all of the different blocks!!
Then for fathers day, the kids and I got creative and made a fathers day gift! The kids had so much fun and they thought it was neat coloring on a t-shirt (not usually allowed here as they think it is great coloring on everything!). Each of the kids also made a personalized fathers day card that they each gave to daddy Fathers Day morning. They were so excited!!!
This is the shirt that we made! Just wish I had remembered to add the date to this for a keepsake later on...oh well!
Rjr fabrics on their Facebook page held another contest. The rules for this one was it had to be a 3D flower using Rjr Fabrics of your choice. As soon as I read the rules I knew what I was going to attemp...I really wanted to make a 3D rose.
After 1 day of voting the results were in, and the verdict was.....I won!!!!!! The prize that came along with this contest was this fabulous bag!! With this prize I decided to do something special with it, but you all will have to wait to hear about that for a wee bit so no surprises will be ruined!
I have also managed to get siggy blocks completed and mailed for another siggy block swap, got a bit more done on my hubby's quilt (yup still tackling that one) and have a few things in the beginning stages to start working on, and a few ideas floating around of a few things I would like to make.
As you can see, June has been busy but productive! It has been great to cross off some things from that "to do" list :)
Now back to work to finish up a few more things!
