How is your summer so far? Anything fun that you've done so far? Or are you going on vacation somewhere? how goes the crafting? :)

Sadly, summer hasn't been great. My mom has been really sick. However, she's on the mend! So summer still has potential to be great.
As for crafting, I'm learning to quilt. I'm hoping to be finished my first one next week and will be starting on a second one right after. Also, got back into my cross stitching but I'm a long way from being done the piece I'm working on.

How about you?

Sorry to hear about your mom :( I hope she gets better quickly!

Be sure to post pics when you're done! I love looking at quilts.

We've been doing a lot of sitting about! today was super hot and we didn't even open the blinds in hope of keeping the house cooler. I'm trying to do a lot of crafting but homework puts a dent in it sometimes.

My summer has been boring. I have been concentrating on school and trying to find a job.

So far we are doing really good.

I miss my guild which shuts down for the summer since the church is not air conditioned.

I have spent most of the summer at the campground with the kids and my spinning wheel. Yesterday kicked off the beginning of a spinning competition. I got two bobbins filled for my Frankenstein yarn.

I am currently working on my socks for yet another competition. I tend to do lots of those but they lead to some awesome prizes.

I need to make more time for taking photos (which I am really bad at) and posting them to my online boards and facebook. Maybe it is a good day to go to the park .... I like to use grass and the picnic tables for backdrop.

I went up north last weekend for a mini-vacation.  I've been working part-time and doing a few crafts.  It's been a relaxing summer.

School work is never fun :( What kind of job are you looking for?
