It’s the last day of June already, and it’s time to share your June UFO finishes in the link up at the end of this blog post. If you have been following along with the Hello 2016, Goodbye UFO’s challenge, you will have completed six projects from your UFO list by now!
I know that summer vacations can add a little time crunch to the challenge, which was definitely true for me this month. We just returned from 11 days in Scandinavia with 3 of our (adult) children, and we had a wonderful time. That’s my UFO for this month – a successful trip (which was entirely planned by me – a challenge in itself) and back home safely.
We started in Stockholm and spent the first 5 days in Sweden visiting with our niece and her family who moved there last year. They have a 2-month-old baby girl and 2-year-old son. It was the perfect vacation for me – some baby snuggles combined with long walks on cobblestone streets and no cooking! We also took the train to Copenhagen and spent one night there.
Next, we landed in Bergen, Norway, and spent 3 days driving through the fjords. We ended up in Lillehammer for two nights, where I found my way into a quilt shop by accident (yes, really) and was happy to see bolts of fabric and beautiful samples on the walls.
We didn’t make it to Oslo (change of plans), but I was able to connect with a good friend, Edith, who lives in a beautiful town just outside of Oslo. I met Edith through my blog, and she has visited me several times in California. She made a fantastic lunch for our family and showed me her sewing room and some recent projects. It was the perfect ending to a wonderful journey!
Now it’s your turn. What have you finished this month? I’m finding it’s hard to keep up with all of my BOM’s and QAL’s, let alone finish a large project. The saying is true, “sew much fabric, sew little time”.
This month’s prize packages will each contain 6 fat quarters of Noteworthy by Sweetwater for Moda, a book of quilting patterns, mini charm pack and Frixion Pen.
