A little break from the cottage and some pics!

Hi everyone, I hope you are all well.
I have been at the cottage all week with my inlaws and the family.
We rented a little cottage just 20 minutes from home for the whole month of August.
My inlaws are staying there the whole month,
but we will be going back and forth since my husband and I have to work.
The cottage is tiny. It is ment for a family of 4, but we have been 7 people and 3 dogs.
A bit crowded!
But we have been managing.
We've had lots of fun fishing and playing games.
 My husband brought his guitar and we sang
while roasting wieners and marshmellows over the fire. 
Even though I grew up in in North Ontario where the mosquitoes are plenty,
still struggle with them. They drive me crazy!!!
I've been using a lot of bug spray. 
I'm home for the weekend with the hubby and the kids.
 It's nice to be back to my central air and the comforts of home.
Ahhhhh!! I love to be home!!!!

I also wanted to share my July block for the Sew Modern Bee. Nicole wanted blocks with circles and she sent the cutest fabric. I decided to do some fussy cutting around the cute little prints. I used fusible web to adhere the circles to the background then hand stitched around each circle with a blanket stitch using embroidery floss. I really like this block. I hope Nicole likes it too.

I have a few more projects to share, but I will wait until tomorrow. I need to take more pictures. I'll be around until Tuesday. So I hope to share a bit more in the next couple of days, before I go back to the cottage.

The cain may be a close fit but there are many memories tied up in it. I really like the block you have made - how cute is that owl print?! ann
