Rain and Sun and Fun

Another weekend comes to a close.  Luckily, this coming week is a short week, and then another long weekend!


On Friday, just as it was time to leave work, we had a major rainstorm, so I decided to wait it out a few minutes, knowing it would probably pass quickly.  It sure made the flowers happy.


The river was a little higher than normal on Saturday, and it was perfect for paddling.







For a special treat today, I met up with Irene from Hilaches.  She’s been visiting family near here for nearly a month, and we finally got a chance to meet up. 


She even brought me some fun western-themed fabrics!  After lunch, we made a trip to a local quilt shop, where Irene managed to refrain from buying too much, because she’s flying home in just a couple of days.  She may have bought a surprise for Ida though!

As the weekend comes to a close, so does the month.  My OPAM’s for the month include a mug rug that I can’t yet show, and a pincushion.  June was more about WIP’s and vacation.

I stole this picture from Di’s blog, because I forgot to take one myself.






So now it’s on to July!  Happy Canada day to all my Canadian friends, and stay cool to my USA friends!
