No Photos

My Trip Around the World is now a flimsy.  Yay! I wish I could show you a photo, but something is wrong with my camera, connection wires or perhaps my computer.  I just can't seem to be able to upload my photos from my camera.  I plan to have this looked into soon.  Perhaps on the weekend. 

But because I hate a post without a photo, I will show you some of my poppies that were blooming in my garden a while ago.

Challenging Myself and a Colourful Crocheted Blanket

Today is July 1st.  It's Canada Day for us.  We are 149 years old.  Young, eh?

I saw a crocheted blanket on KaHolly's blog.  I fell in love with it.  And I hoped it would use up a lot of my yarn stash.  Here is my version.  Not completely finished yet.  And I still have to weave the ends in.  But I have all summer for that.  And it is using a lot of yarn.


Barb from Bejeweledquilts is challenging herself and wants others to join in.  She is trying to finish a quilt that she started many years ago.  I also have a quilt that I started quite a while back.  I want to get this one finished.  No, I need to get this one finished.  So I am joining Barb.  How about you?

I only have 6 more strips to sew on.  And that is only on the bottom part.  I think that is doable. Don't you?
