MIA - What a Summer!!!

Sorry - I have been Missing in Action from my Blog but summer has been a big whirl wind for all of my family....and it has not stopped yet.

At the end of June it was back to Ottawa with the largest suitcase available to deliver quilts to all my quilty friends and customers (check out my "Customer Quilts" page to see some of them). My mother came with me so we could see our Becca graduate from highschool.  She is off to UBC - Okanagan Campus in Kelowna to take Nursing.

July 5th we packed up our truck and trailer and headed west through the northern states.  It was a very long trip but fun.  We loved Montana and hope to visit again.  Spent a day in Yellowstone National Park and saw Old Faithful.  Beautiful country.

We made it back to Summerland mid July and did a bit more unpacking of boxes.....there are still many to do....but we are getting there.

During the first two weeks of August we were off again with my sister and her husband to do some camping.....well really RVing!!  No tents for this girl anymore.  We spent a week fishing up at Jewel Lake (no luck) and another week down in Washington State at Twisp and Winthrop.  We also managed to get a couple of games of golf in as well.

Sam and I have been busy this past week helping out a friend pick her peaches.  You really know it's summer in the Okanagan when the peaches are ready to eat.  They fill your hand and the sweet juice just runs down your arm.  Yum.  And I see a quilt in this picture......

I have also been busy making a wedding quilt for my niece Candace and her fellow Alex.  The wedding is next weekend so I need to hustle.

My brother-in-law Kelly and my nephew Ian are busy building for us again.  I am having my "Dye House" built this weekend.  Very excited and will share pictures in a few days.

Hope your summer was as fun and jam packed as mine.  Thanks for visiting and see you again much sooner.......
