Happy Canada Day and July OMG goal.

     Happy Canada Day everyone!  As we are in the middle of a heat and humidity wave Dwight and I are planning to spend most of the day inside.  Our daughter was home for the last two days which was great.  She is such an easy person to spend time with and she worked on a couple of plant projects that I haven't managed to get around to: trimming and staking the cherry tomato plant she gave me and major surgery on an orchid.


     June turned out to be a much busier month than I had anticipated and I did not manage to meet my OMG goal.  I did find time in the last few days of the month to get 1/2 of the goal done and added these three blocks to the mix.  I have decided to continue with this quilt for July and complete the entire top by July's end.  This may seem crazy as I didn't get too far in June, but I will be making this quilt be my priority and I've made a date with a long armer for the end of the month, so there is some added incentive.  So I'm linking this post up to the OMG linkup for July and we'll see in a months time if I was successful.

  5. Having a date with a longarm is definitely a lot of incentive! I look forward to seeing the bright and happy quilt come together.

  6. Nice blocks. I spent a couple of years in Newfoundland when I was around 6-8....about 65 years ago. Do you enjoy living there. I always wanted to go back.

  8. Not so crazy. June turned out busy for a lot of people, but that doesn't mean July won't go better. =) Best of luck! The colors are wonderful together.

  10. Spring and summer double our commitments. It's okay to drop off of our sewing goals to meet the others. Only so much of us to go around, right? Good to see you sticking to the goal, though, with an added carrot on your string. It will be nice to see this project come together for you without too much stressful sewing. Enjoy summer!

  14. I was lucky to watch the fireworks for Canada Day - they were spectacular. Yes, it is hot everywhere, but the cool blocks you made seem to lower the temperature beautifully :-)
