GQ and Countdowns

>> Tuesday, August 25, 2009

The countdown continues for my sister. She is getting closer with everyday to her birthday.
I'm excited because I conquered some FEAR yesterday and worked on quilting her final gift. Now it can realistically be completed and delivered on time. You'll have to wait until mid-September to see the results.

This Christmas fabric is from Heather at Quilter's Connection. A NEW Canada wide magazine by and for quilters. The first issue comes out September 1st. I won a giveaway on the magazine's blog. (The reason for GQ in the title of the post!) I know many Canadian quilters are anticipating this magazine.

The final countdown for back to school is also on here. We took a family trip to Sudbury, which is just under an hour away, to visit Dynamic Earth. We took an underground mining tour, panned for gold, and discovered many neat minerals. This one was on the giant mineral wall when we entered. Many reminded me of colour combinations in quilting. This one reminds me of metallic thread.

I'm trying not to countdown this month too quickly as many of my monthly goals remain on my TO DO list. It is the end of summer, so I'm finding my quilting time is being traded in for family movies and outings. Or a nice day away. I will catch up! Watch and see:)

Enjoy all the anticipation this month,
Sarah Vee

Hey Sarah,
I just posted the presents from the last few days. I can't imagine the fun (and perhaps frustration) you had putting this all together for me. I am really really thankful to have such a great sister. Can't wait to see what you quilted!
