Next week is also the reveal for the first round on the centre block of our Mini Round Robin. There is excitement building! And next week is also my big reveal of projects made for the Henry Glass Fabrics Desire to Inspire Challenge, and my interview on their blog, eeek! Or 'eeeep!' Also be sure to visit their blog if you'd like to take on this challenge, as they will be announcing the opening for the July challenge probably on Friday, July 1! It's been fun: good brain and good creativity work.
Right NOW, for four more full days, Craftsy (affiliate link) is having another mega sale on supplies and kits. This is as good a sale as they have, but what is better is that they have extended it to a full 5 days (it started yesterday), as opposed to the usual weekend one. Apparently this is it for all summer, so now might be the time to stock up, replenish or snag the product you've been eyeing for a while. As the button on the sidebar says, 40% off all kits and supplies (and that is across the board, so if you knit, for example, check out the yarn as I have, and take advantage of some sweet deals), but some products are as much as 60%. Remember you can sort by price, and go from lowest to highest.
Important: As you heard once before I've had some issues in the past with orders bought through my links but not credited to me. I had asked if you do buy through my link, just let me know in a personal email, and the order number, nothing else, so that I can check to see that that order number did show up. I totally appreciate this that several of you have let me know. We did a conference call and screenshare in early June to check everything and all appears to be working. However. I have heard now that not everyone can SEE my sidebar button which Craftsy puts there and updates. It is right under the Moda Bakeshop button, so can you let me know if you do NOT see it? If it is there, no need to tell me. Thank you for supporting my blog; it means a lot, truly.
So a leedle update and enabling since I posted this (yeah yeah I've been browsing)...that Steamfast mini iron which I ADORE? Haven't used my Rowan big one except for once on a quilt top since I've been sewing on the dining table, and I can tell you I am more in love than ever with it...it's even cheaper now than what I got it for! $26CA so I would bet it's under $20US. It's also part of yesterday's freebie Friday giveaway on the Craftsy blog, if you haven't entered yet. If you are in the US, there is free shipping on orders over $99, so get a couple friends together and take advantage of that sweet deal!
Hope you've also been checking out the New Bloggers Hop going on; there are some sweet giveaways to be had as well! This is Week 2 and you can find the links to the blogs at Cheryl's Meadow Mist Designs.
Cheryl's mystery that starts in just under 2 weeks?! This is mine (yet to be quilted) from last year. It was a great project, lots of fun, with one step per month, so not much at all to add to a person's load, right?
One last quick photo...

Happy weekend! Hope the sun is shining in your little corner of this blue-green planet, as it is in mine, and that you get in some sewing time as well. Take the time to pause, though, and remember those who are hurting, those whose loved ones were killed in Orlando, those whose homes have been lost either in Fort McMurray, or now both homes and lives lost in West Virginia with the terrible flooding. Send them some love and hopes for better tomorrows, and maybe even participate in one of the ongoing quilt donations.
