Vacation Catch Up

We arrived home this morning at 1:15 am. I finally fell asleep at 2:30 and slept until almost noon. I've spent my afternon catching up on the blog entries I marked while on vacation. Everyone was so creative while I was walking around Vancouver and Whistler. I did not get any stitching done nor did I visit any quilt shops, but I did spend money on other goodies. I'll share those this weekend.

I thought I'd share some of the swaps and giveaways going on that I found while I catching up on blog news and notes:
  • Lyn at Blue Bird Quilts is having a Christmas in July Giveaway for three sewing packages. Sounds like fun to me. Check it out and sign up.
  • Helen at Hugs from Helen is hosting a Stitchers' Angel Swap. I think this will be a fun way to wrap up my summer months. PS - Can someone tell me how to get the complete logo to show up in my sidebar?
  • Cotton Spice is having a Summer Workshop to finish up summer too. Be sure to check it out.
  • I signed up for the 2008 Bead Journal Project. Since I've recently decided to start beading I thought doing this project would be a great way to chronicle my progress with beads.


Here's a tease of the views we had at Whistler - I'm standing at the Inukshuk at the top of Whistler Mountain (elevation about 7,000 feet).

I'll be back this weekend for more vacation notes and photos. Have a great weekend!

Hi and thanks for the comment on my blog. I think the Stitchers' Angel swap will be a fun thing to try. It will be my first swap. About your question regarding fitting the picture in the side-bar. This is a link to the site where I got the info to change the size of mine. It was a bit tricky. I did as they suggested and made another blog just for trying to make the changes I wanted. Good Luck...TTFN...Lilly
