I think I was waiting for this break before last quarter ever started.
I tend to take it hard sometimes when my day to day isn't getting accomplished I think trying out goals over a couple of weeks might be good for me (I did have to limit the list however - it quickly got out of hand).
I actually really wanted to photograph the group of drivers but it would have been rude. There was just something about their "group-ness." I was actually drawn to them first and then I noticed the cars.
Benefits, Saturday, June 16th:
Relay for Life North Bend Bake Sale and Garage Sale. I will be baking for this one and thanks to my sister and mom I have garage sale contributions. You will see more posts on this obviously because of the baking...including dog treats.
Auto Angels Auto Show. An auto show would be a personal nightmare for me. But so many people love them and I think what Auto Angels does is super admirable. If you are in the Bellevue area, consider supporting them.
Dresden Quilting Challenge. Oh, how I wish I had never heard of you. Now I spend even more time per day - hoping quilting blogs - stunned by the ideas and creativity out there. And yes, if I get taken with it, I might do my own project.
Purse Palooza. This is possibly worse than the Dresden Challenge which is funny considering my appalling lack of fashion. However, quilting sorts of people tend to take purses and bags to an entirely different level and once again I actually have a time situation thanks the blog hopping.
Obviously I am a dedicated Vogelstar reader and actually learning so much about Japan that it makes me want to visit which I never would have thought about that country. I can't believe how much I am drawn to the video to get a feeling of Japan.
The other day, off a quilting site (go figure) came this:
Africa Journals. Scroll down to the bottom to start the journal. I had to quickly close the site due to all the sitting I was already doing thanks to the quilting hops. I am not far into this journal.
Should I ever take up traveling you to may be subject to my handwriting because I love this format so much. My day to day journals are sort of already laid out like this including cut-outs and images (although no where near as interesting or pretty). I love the visual.
This quilt is number 2 on my "Break List" (number 1 being the Tova shirt of course). The backing is another panel of that flannel I was given and it just barely, BARLEY large enough. But it will work.
