Fun Summer Projects

Hi friends!

Wow! Summer is my favorite season. So why is it that July speeds by when January feels like it is 3 months long???

My Summer Projects:

What are your favorite things to do in the summer? I do love to get outside and hike when I can or at least, talk a good walk around the neighborhood. Feels so good to be out in the fresh air- at least when it is not 95 degrees!

My other favorite thing is to be at the beach.

Which, being in Colorado, isn’t happening anytime soon. BUT, I am already planning a trip back east next year so I can visit family AND spend time at the beach. I just find being by the water so soothing.

So sometimes I work outside on my deck where I can listen to our fountain.

This was a busy month for me and maybe that is why it is flying by! First we had the Designer Tips and Techniques videos, then the Quilt Designer Shop Hop.

The other summer project that kept me super busy this month was preparing to film a class with Quilting Daily! This week I filmed a class up in Golden CO. It worked out great! Everyone on set wore masks (except me when filming) and we kept our distance. And we still had fun! I can’t wait for you to see what I did.

  1. There are 2 places my cats are forbidden; my sewing room and our bed at night ( the dogs got there first:-)
    Currently doing no sewing as I am recuperating from a fall and nasty gash on my leg:-( maybe next week, I hope.

    1. Fran,
      I am so sorry to hear about your injury. I hope it heals quickly! Cats are locked out of the bedroom at night here as well; one kept climbing on me at 3 am, pawing my face, scratching at me to wake up and pet her! But the sewing room has no door so it is free game to them!
