Make-A-List Monday - Taking A Week Off (from lists...)

 

Hi, all!

Well, despite all attempts from Mother Nature to rain on our parade, we managed to make it to the beach, and vacation is under way!  We ain't afraid of no tropical storms!!

I'm happy to report that I managed to finish everything on my list from last week - good thing, since it was all related to getting ready for vacation.  

And it's been a good week for doing some blog maintenance!  I finally found a solution to Blogger taking Feedburner away, which also took away the easy way to send you posts by email.  You can see that I have added a new "follow by email" box to the left side bar, as the posts will now be coming via email.  Follow.it is supposed to be importing my list of previous email subscribers, but it seems to be taking a while, so feel free to sign up there again if you want.  I'd hate for you to miss anything!  You can read more about this whole process by clicking here.

I also got things started for the 12 Days of Christmas in July blog hop, putting out a call for bloggers who want to be a part of the hop.  If you're interested, drop me a line at salliesue57 (at) gmail (dot) com and I'll add you to the list.  You can read more about what's involved by clicking here.

And while I have been doing some of this while here, the weather has been iffy, so I have also been doing some of this...

...working on my vacation quilt!  I've made about 1/3 of the 25-patch blocks I'll need for the whole top so far.  A good start, and I really think I'm going to like it!

And today, during a rainy patch, I went to one of my favorite places - A&E Pharmacy in Pensacola.  Contrary to what you might think, no drugs are are sold here, but a truly fabulous array of fabric and other craft supplies.  I found fabrics I needed for a trio of memory quilts...

... and also the fabrics for this year's 12 Days of Christmas in July quilt-along! I'm excited to get started on that one - probably first thing after we get back from vacation.  I didn't bring the best tools with me for cutting out a quilt, plus I really want to get the blocks for my vacation quilt finished!  So I'll just pet the fabrics for a while yet.

And now that I've shared what I'm doing this week, I really want to know - - - what are YOU working on?

Hugs!

Sarah

  5. Glad you are having a good vacation -- you certainly deserve it after doing all the work for H2H -- I was so impressed with all the quilters who participated and the huge number of quilts sent out! Great job Sarah.

  7. Just a few days I came across your blog by chance looking for something (?) and signed up for emails. Today came the first via follow.it
    I think I will enjoy reading your blogs. I am a blogger myself. Actually three blogs. I just put my first video tutorial up https://laceandquilts.blogspot.com/2021/06/a-sewing-tip-to-avoid-mistakes.html. You might be interested how I am sewing blocks for your vacation quilt. Hope the weather improves for the rest of your vacation.
