It is finally here... vacation time! For two weeks, I'll be spending time with the kids, hopefully doing all kinds of fun vacation activities during the day and quilting my little heart out in the evenings!
I have much to do in the quilting department over the next couple of weeks. I have to find backing fabric for Heather's wedding quilt, and quilt the whole thing because she'll be off work to get married in mid-September.
Then, I have to find a pattern as well as fabric for a baby girl quilt for my colleague Claudia who is due to deliver in early November.
I also have lots of finished tops that need a backing and quilting... I'm hoping I'll be able to at least prepare one of those tops for quilting.
Over the last few weekends, D has been busy building me a new island for our country kitchen and he's finally almost done. I have to admit I really wasn't sure about getting rid of every single kitchen cabinet and storing everything in the existing pantry and the new island, but now that it's almost done, I really like it. The thing is a lot bigger than I thought it would be, so there's definitely no room for cabinets now!
I might not be able to post much during my vacation (no computer at the cottage), but I'll let blogland know how I did with the quilts when I get back...
