Have to admit that I have been on a fabric binge lately. Guess it is just like the food diet. Depriving myself of the fun of acquiring fun new fabrics just doesn't work!!  LOL

I just could not resist a collection of Tula Pink fabrics. I really like what some of the new young fabric designers are doing.

My straw bale garden is really growing like the plants are on steroids. Only problem is that the weeds are doing very well also.

Have finished quilting two quilts so far this month. It feels wonderful to have a couple of UFO's done.

Our youngest granddaughter, Hannah, graduated from High School in June. Hannah is getting Easy Street as part of her graduation present. She likes purple, so I think she will really like it. She has become such a young lady.

The Minnesota Quilt show was held in Duluth this year. Since I rode the bus from Gruber's Quilt Shop to the show, it was a fun day with many friends and acquaintances. A week after the Minnesota Show, Brainerd Pinetree Patchworkers had their quilt show. I always like to attend their show. They have some very talented quilters.

So far it has been a busy summer. We will be going up to Fargo to help celebrate July birthdays. There are three of them: daughter Natalie, son-in-law Norman, and grandson Jacob.

Hugs to all and make sure you hop over to Patchwork Times to see what others are doing.

Hugs, Beth
