Happy Canada Day to Fellow Canadians

Yes, it is me. I'm still around but have been busy with working outdoors around the house and with doing some travelling.

We did take a trip to Nova Scotia to visit Cathey and her Hubby and we had a great time even if it did rain a lot while we were there. Of course, we have had a lot of rainy days in June and we have not had really nice summery weather yet. This past week has been the pits, rain every day. Getting back to our visit to Cathey's, we got to see her new home and it is just beautiful. She and her Hubby were very gracious hosts as well and it was a wonderful visit and I want to thank them both and we are very proud of both of them.

This past weekend, we took part in a multi-family yard sale. We had it on Saturday morning from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon. At 11:40 a.m., the rain came down in a downpour and so we closed it about 20 minutes early. It was fun and we got rid of a lot of stuff. We actually can walk around now in the storage area of our big garage. Wonders never cease!!!

We took a camping trip to Bangor, Maine, about three weeks ago. Well, if you can believe it, the girls all headed to Marden's (they have a big selection of fabrics) and Jo-Ann's Fabrics. Me, being me couldn't go to either place without buying more fabrics. I swear I must addicted to fabrics. It feels so good to walk out of those places with fabric. Since then, I have started another quilt. I have most of the material cut and some of it marked ready to sew. This one is in bright yellows and bright blues. Now all I have to do is find some time to spend at it.

We have also had some visitors. They have been family mostly. It is fun have visitors especially if they have not been here since our renovations. Everyone is impressed with DH's workmanship as I am. I just heard that Cathey is coming for a few days in mid-July. Looking forward to that visit, always enjoy seeing them.

I want to with every Canadian a very Happy Canada Day! Hopefully, I won't be as long getting back to blogging next time. Have a great day everyone!

Good to have you back in blog-land. You have had a busy spring. Glad it was an enjoyable one (except for all the rain). I'll look forward to seeing the latest quilt as you get it together.

Happy Canada Day to you Mumzy!!!! I loved your post and am so jealous about all that lovely rain you've been getting. Things are quite awful here, brown and crispy lawns, stunted gardens and the trees are looking so sad. What we wouldn't do for a couple of days of steady rain.

Your newest quilt project sounds so inviting, yellow & blue, also very European, n'est pas?

Have a wonderful day and a great summer.

We had fun with you here although we could have done without all that rain ;o) I'm looking forward to coming home for a few days, even if it's not for the best of reasons.

Glad to hear that you got rid of some stuff. I guess I'll be the judge of how well you did when I see the garage ;o) LOL!

Happy Canada Day to you and Dad! Not a great night for fireworks.
