I've been trying to keep up with the Sew All Around QAL that has been running on Quilts My Way this summer. I am enjoying doing all of the circles that Gosia has been challenging us with in her patterns. This one was all about waves.
Other bits of sewing have been my Gridster Bee Blocks. I have enjoyed being able to work ahead a bit on these. These blocks are for Lisa on IG @nymblefyngers. She requested little tree blocks. The pattern can be found HERE.
I need to catch up on the Temperature Quilt, but this is what the year has looked like up into the middle of July.
We recently returned from our annual fishing trip in the Sierras. It was absolutely gorgeous this year after the wonderful rains we had. Of course, there is still quite a bit of snow in the area. Our son actually skied one of the mornings before fishing! The scenery was spectacular as we fished at 9700 feet elevation. There is nothing like have a line in the water as you take in that sight.

My favorite part is watching and enjoying the interaction of all of the grandchildren. It's not as though they aren't together frequently since they live locally, but they aren't together 24/7 like they are when we are away.

DD came over and helped me put up the pickles for the summer. Everyone wanted to help so we found jobs for everyone.
As we say goodbye to July we welcome August. Christmas will be here before we know it. Happy August!
