AwH Oops! I Missed Saturday

I didn't get a chance to post Saturday because I wasn't home.

We packed the entire family in the van and we took the ferry to cross to Quebec. We drove all the way to this beautiful lake ...

where we have some wonderful friends waiting for us. They are so lucky to live at the lake year round. (Sending you big hugs and kisses, my sweet friends. It was so good to see you all again.) We spend the day catching up on so many things. It was just lovely.

So now I am late posting my progress on my RSC2015 project. In case you are still interested in seeing my work, here are my red blocks for the month of July.

I still need to do some aqua blocks to replace the light blue of June and then I'll be all caught up. This coming Saturday, Angela will reveal a new colour for the month of August AND I get my first lesson on how to use my new sewing machine.  :^D  YEAH! It will be a FUN Saturday.

Linking up with Angela at So Scrappy for the round up of reds.  Since we are Sunday, I will also link up with Cynthia at Quilting is more fun than Housework for Oh Scraps fun.

Until next time ....



  1. Congrats! on your new sewing machine. Good luck with your lesson! And... OF COURSE we still want to see what RED goodness you have sewn!! At the same time, we are SEW happy that your family was able to enjoy a little getaway.

  2. I read back a bit and I see what these red blocks are going to join. This is going to be a fabulous quilt, keep at it!

  3. That quilt is going to be so stunning!
    Glad you got to spend some fun time at a lake, with friends. Sounds like the ideal summertime activity to me!

  4. Visiting from Oh Scrap! :) Your reds look great and I hope you have a great time learning more about your machine; that sounds really exciting.

  5. Un petit break est toujours le bienvenu !!
    Tes blocs sont très beaux ! J'aime beaucoup les tons de rouge que tu as utilisé !!
    Gros bisous Chantal !

  6. lovely place to go... your red blocks look great and I hope you have a lot of fun learning your new machine...

  7. Cute blocks. I like the secondary pattern that shows up in your layout.

  8. How nice to be able to get away. I love your red blocks ... I too love the secondary pattern that your blocks create.

  9. Those are such great blocks! They make me want to pull some fabric and make some for myself. Thanks so much for sharing with Oh Scrap!

  10. New sewing machine lessons -- so exciting! The red blocks look great.

  11. Your reds look great - enjoy that lesson xx

  12. I think packing the family up for a lovely day out is far more important than doing a link up. Those blocks are wonderful.

  13. I really like this block (love pinwheels). I went back through your posts about RSC2015 to see if you mentioned the sizes of the pinwheels and HST, but didn't see it. Would you mind sharing the sizes. I could play around with them, but I did see you said you had to cut down the HST to fit.

  14. Great blocks! I'm a little jealous of your time at the lake. ;- )

  15. Congratulations! A new sewing machine! Great red blocks. Love the pictures. I've been to Canada a few times and think it is a beautiful country.

In the Shades

Yes, you've heard me complain about how hot it is at the moment in Canada but I want to finish the flannel quilt for my son.  Our emblem...
