The weather has been amazingly hot – well over 30 degrees most days – without a drop of rain since early June. We had two days in air conditioned luxury during out trip to Whitefish, Montana last week. Whitefish is about a 3-4 hour drive from Lethbridge – we drove through Glacier National Park on the Going to the Sun Road, hence the variability in time. The drive was fantastic, altho I am sorry to report very few glaciers remaining in Glacier Park. We did enjoy our trip to Whitefish tho – the kids did some shopping, we had a few nice walks, went thru a farmer’s market, played in the pool, ate way too much, and enjoyed being out of the heat. I found The Back Door General Store – which is really a quilting shop! They carry McKenna Ryan quilts, fabrics and patterns – she lives just down the road. I was absolutely delighted to buy all the fabrics for her Petals of my Heart quilt – you can see it here:
I already have the patterns, so just need to get busy! I also bought flannel fabric for a quilt for DD – shhhhh, it is going to be a surprise!
I have been stitching a bit this month – I did these two blocks for the Ackworth Friendship Book RR that I am in:
I have also stitched a gift for a Birthday exchange, but am having trouble finding time to finish it! The deadline on a model stitch job has just been moved up ….. and I spent all Saturday reading Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. While I am sorry to see the series end, I am happy with the ending!
Finally, a garden update. My yucca plant has enjoyed this hot hot weather, and has graced the back yard with its blooms:
Keep cool everyone!
