Bye Bye June!

It sure is very hot and humid here in Lincoln!! It reached triple digits here today! It, being the last day of June puts an end to another month, but, being from Nebraska I know that it won't be the end of the scorching high temps!!

I did a lot of PR work the last several weeks for our Quilts For Kids chapter. The Quarters for Quilts campaign is getting off to a good start for us! We've had some great success from the community in helping to fill our collection cans, and the brochures have brought some more volunteers as well.

I managed to work on several piecing and quilting projects from my long list of UFO's throughout the month, and, hopefully in July will be able to have a couple finishes. I was able to complete the block for May, for the Flickr group Bee Pieceful but, still need to complete June's block for that group. Hoping to finish that this weekend.

Sure hope everyone is staying as cool as possible, and enjoying some quilting time!!

Long time, no posts, so sorry!

Its been hectic around here lately. After devoting lots of time to get my computer up and running again, I got behind on lots of other things as well. Now, that summer is here, I find myself with even less time than before!

I feel really bad for skipping out on the Scrap Challenge, but, hopefully will be able to start participating again in July. I really missed visiting everyone's blogs, and seeing their awesome ideas, and projects!

The month of May was busy for the Lincoln chapter of Quilts For Kids also! We were able to take 62 quilts to the Omaha Children's Hospital, along with some wheelchair, walker bags, and hospital bed saddlebags as well!! Thanks to all the wonderful volunteers that made this possible! Here's a sampling of some of the quilts that were made by volunteers in the chapter.

And during the month of June, we are running a donation campaign Quarters For Quilts which has been going well, although this does requires lots of my time.

So, even though I might not post every day, I will certainly try to post at least weekly!! Thanks for hanging in there for me. Ila
