Wednesday we leave to go camping with both my daughters and their families. I am really looking forward to spending some quality time with them and my granddaughters.
Later in the month we are watching the granddaughters for a week while my daughters and their husbands, and my grandson and his girlfriend go to Las Vegas to celebrate my grandson's 21st birthday.
Then on the 24th we are going to Shipshewana for the day with my youngest daughter. Somewhere in the month we want to go camping again but I'm not sure.
And of course I have to try and get caught up on all my BOM's. I plan on prepping some applique blocks to take with us camping.
Speaking of BOM's. I have some updates to show you.
These are the first 6 blocks for my Almost Amish BOM from Sentimental Stitches. Yesterday I made the June block and then realized that I didn't make the May block. I finished it this morning.
These are the first 6 months worth of blocks for the Hip Chicks BOM. Joined at the Hip that is. This is the first time I have put all the blocks together on my design wall and I am really liking it.
These are the blocks for the County Threads BOM. Each month we are given patterns for a block done in 6" and 12". Unlike the Hip Chicks BOM which the blocks are given in order as they will be in the quilt...these blocks are given in a random order.
I showed you some Japanese X blocks that I made for a swap I am in. Each month one of us is Queen for the month and everyone sends us 2 blocks. I am the June Queen. Here are some of the blocks I have received so far.
I asked for blocks with a red center. The blocks that have a different center color are ones I made for practice. The blocks are coming in from all over the United States, Canada, England, Germany and Australia. It will be interesting to see the rest. Not sure how I feel about the look of this...but it seems to be growing on me.
It is a beautiful day here in Michigan. The sun is finally shining, the sky is blue, there is a slight breeze and the temp is around 79. I hope we have more weather like this when we camp.
I hope you are having a wonderful weekend and thanks for stopping by.
