What I learned in June 2010

I was inspired to write monthly reviews by Amber Strocel of See her June review and learn what she's been harvesting from her garden here.

Here's what I learned in June:
1. I'm going to be spending a lot of time at Spool of Thread Sewing Lounge. I went to their highly-anticipated grand opening in early June and brought the whole family with me. Here I am buying fabric for a quilt Dean is going to design for me.

2. My family is so supportive that they'll listen to me talk about quilting for hours on end. My father-in-law can now distinguish modern quilts from art quilts and traditional quilts!

3. Sophie can run/walk a 1K with ease! She was a star at the Child Run and had fun high-fiving all the cheerleaders.

4. I have a junior quilter on my hands. Here she is carefully arranging her Kona cotton charm pack. I bought it for her so she could have her own fabric to play with while I quilt.

5. There is an enthusiastic group of modern quilters in Vancouver who are excited to make the Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild a success!

6. Dean's still a kid a heart. Of course, I knew this, but here's some visual proof.

7. Sophie's not about to win an Olympic medal in the sack race, but she sure had fun jumping up and down in one place!


  1. Better late than never! Thanks so much for playing along.

    I simply MUST get down to Spool of Thread. Must. I just don't know if I'll be able to get out without spending every cent I have to my name.

  2. Love Sophie's sack race photo! And always enjoy your "what I learned" lists :)

  3. Great list!! You forgot to mention that you are a great cheerleader/motivator/organizer yourself! That first ever meeting of the VMQG was a knock-out!
