July Update

* for some reason this post wasn't published, so it is a little behind.

Wow July was definitely action packed and a busy month. Let's do a recap...

The goodwill quilts have been washed and I will talk more about this in an upcoming post.

We did three road trips during July, yes three, for stay at home types that is something. We visited the Coromandel Peninsula, Whangarei and Opotiki. I really enjoy getting out and about while seeing more of our beautiful country even if it is winter or especially in winter as you get to see the bare bones of the landscape with the trees bare it has a rawness about it.

While Home Coming Lane isn't completed yet, I have been quilting on all four blocks and progress is being made.

The gridlock quilts have gone to Australia and the girls have them to snuggle in which makes me happy. Pics to come of them with their quilts.

We had a very busy July at club as well with the Presidents Challenge being displayed and winners announced at a special dinner which also started a stitching weekend which started with a midnight madness on the Friday night and a UFO weekend on Saturday and Sunday where members could work on their own projects or spend some time working on goodwill quilts for charity. Everyone had a good time with Milton from Wright Fabrics as a merchant on the Saturday.

Until next time happy stitching everyone.
