For a week we joined some very good friends of ours at their lake house in B.C. It was a wonderful time, the weather was hot, the beach was beautiful, meals were tasty and the kids had a great time. While we were there, some shopping in quilt shops was a must and I found some lovely items.
This is a placemat kit I picked up. The picture is in the top right corner. I just love these fabrics!!
And then I found this adorable pattern for a growth chart and some Best Press starch!
There were so many other goodies that I found and wanted to bring home, but I was a good girl :)
Projects, there have been a few that I have been busy with, and now a few more on the go.
I made this wedding cake for some friends of mine. They got married at the beginning of July! The bride had given me some roses, but I still had to hand craft a good amount to cover this cake. It was a beautiful cake, and I had fun making this one!!
I also participated in a siggy block swap hosted by Julie at Jaybird Quilts. I had so much fun participating in this swap. These are the 101 blocks that I mailed out, to be sorted. I have received back my selection of blocks, all are different and absolutely gorgeous!
I made these decorative album covers for my cousins. My husband took all of their wedding pictures, and I must say they are amazing!! It is great to be married to a photographer!! But we thought it would be nice to have a stunning album for the stunning pictures. So these are what I made!
I also signed up for needle case swap hosted by Michele at the Quilting Gallery. I sent the needle case I made to my partner in Holland. This is what it looked like when I was finished!
I am getting ready to make a few nightgowns and some other projects that are floating around in my mind, and then participate in a few quilt-alongs!!
Now, all of these intentions are good, but it will be dependent on my wonderful children. They seem to like all of my attention :)
