Charming Girls Quilt Club

I decided to join in all the fun over at Charming Chatter and signed up for the Charming Girls Quilt Club.


This year Kelly decided to have bi-monthly goals/priorities. This seems very manageable, and I think will be another great motivator for me. The goals for the two months can be more than just quilting goals - another great idea. There is also other fun stuff, like quilt alongs, swaps, and sewing parties. So/sew much fun!!
There is also monthly themes. This month it is "Self Care". That is something I definitely believe in! It is important to take time for yourself so that you can be the best that you can be!

My goals for the months of July and August are to finish this little Schnibbles quilt. Today I sewed all the blocks together.
Next month my family is taking a vacation to another country - so my goal is also to experience the joys of another culture, and to see if we can improve our lives because of it.
I also want to make another little bag.
Just three goals for these two months, not much. I spend lots of time in the summer enjoying time with my family, and outdoors.

Now for garden pictures.

Lots of Day-lilies blooming


And a Cactus blooming


Yesterday there was a beautiful double rainbow -

It was so bright!!

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!!

I just love that Schnibbles, and your flowers are so lovely, not to mention that rainbow. I haven't seen a double one in a long time!

Enjoy the new quilt club...sounds like a lot of fun!

XOXO,
