Blogland Happenings!

There is so much happening in blogland - it truly boggles the mind.
HMMMM - Thimbles and Joy have been having way too much fun in my sewing room! This should keep them in check - until, of course, their DH (Devious Hero) comes along and saves them. I think he's involved in their antics. :-)


A great giveaway!

Jackie at CantonVillage Quilt Works is having a wonderful giveaway - visit her blog for all the details - you don't want to miss this one. :-)


Summer Strip Challenge

Hanne has issued a Summer Strip Challenge (keep your clothes on - this is about your Jelly Roll strips LOL)


Summer Stash Challenge

Eileen has issued a Summer Stash Challenge - using up what we have in our stash closets, drawers, containers, etc. :-)


Finish Five by End of July

Peg at Happy Quilting has issued a Finish Five by End of July Challenge


Naturally, I popped into Jackie's blog and entered her fabulous giveaway. Then I considered all three Summer challenges. Guess which one I decided to sign up for? You're correct if you guessed "Finish Five by End of July". If you read my blog on a regular basis (and I hope you do) then you know that my pile of flimsies waiting to be quilted is completely out of control. I must start focusing on quilting those flimsies (repeat three times) LOL
My mom is coming tomorrow to visit for two weeks so my blogging time may be a bit limited. Then again, I may need to blog for some sanity. LOL
As always I thank you for popping in to visit and to share a smile or two! Please come again soon.
In Friendship!

Thanks for posting about our Summer Stash Challenge in your blog. :) I did pop over to look at Peg's.. you are one gutzy gal! Wow..that is only a little over one week to finish each quilt. I could maybe do that if all I had to do was the binding! :) Good luck to you.. this will be a fun challenge to follow along!

Happy Stitching to you...you're one busy quilter. :)

Jackie said...

Great! I have entered that one too! I am also thinking about Eileen's as well. Thanks for linking back to my giveaway and good luck!

Thimbles and Joy are a riot!

Those poor, poor, innocent bunnies. I hope you've let them down . . . their ears must really hurt *s*

Carol said...

Those wascally wabbits...that should keep them out of trouble for a few minutes. LOL!

Nanette Merrill and daughters said...

Have fun with your mom. Everything else is not important. These summer challenges are so much fun. It keeps us moving!!

Good luck with your summer challenge. I know you can do it! Most of all, enjoy your time with your mom. Take care.
Aloha!

welcome back Thimbles and Joy-you crack me up!

Carole said...

I cannot believe you would do that to those poor innocent creatures! lol Now, I cannot figure out who is the 5 for July. That's something I could get into! I need tops! ;o) Have fun Speedy Quilty Gonzales!

Mar said...

Good luck getting those done, I have faith in your determination!!

Wendy said...

Let me down....let me down.
There sure are a lot of challenges going on...I hope to jump in to one of these. Have a great visit with your Mom.

Cheryl said...

Peg - Happy In Quilting said...

Challenges ae good for our soul....well it sounds good anyway, so pleased you have joined...have fun

Kathy Wagner said...

Yes...there is so much going on in cyber quilt land! And there is so much going on in your sewing room! Wow! So many beautiful tops appeared while I was away! They are all gorgeous...I can't even pick a favorite!

Ginger Patches said...

I joined in the other 2 challenges I don't know if I dare do another!!! Although I could definitely stand to quilt some of my flimsies also!!!

julieQ said...

What a wonderful group of challenges...just the thing to give a quilter that extra push.

Karen said...

I am going to be watching for those five finished projects. Maybe one of your little helpers you've hung on a peg should be let loose to help you out.

Nan said...

I am totally worn out reading about all these challenges! Yikes! I should join Peg's, as I am on my way to finishing 5 quilts by the end of July, but I'm afraid putting pressure on myself will bog me down. Does that make sense? Anyhoo, I am proud of you for joining Peg's challenge. You can do it!! I bet the wascally wabbits aren't still hanging around waiting to be rescued, are they? H'moosies!!!

Nanette Merrill and daughters said...

Ok I know you are busy with your mom but you are missed! I hope you are having a nice time together.
