I've been on a blog holiday!!!

Hi everyone,

I hope you are all well.
I have been taking a break from blogging.
It's summer......
and I have been spending time with my family.

I did do some sewing.
I forgot to take pictures of a few items that I made.

But I do have pictures of a UFO that I made some progress on.
I was cleaning my sewing area,  and found my 4 patches for the border of my 
Sew Modern Bee quilt.
This quilt started 13 months ago 
with my fabric being sent out to the lovely ladies of the Sew Modern Bee.
This quilt has been a struggle for me.
I'm definitely more a traditional quilter, than a modern quilter.
I love modern quilts, I just don't succeed that well at making them myself.

So, I managed to finish the border on this quilt and the
top is now done.

Progress......gotta love progress!!!

I also wanted to share with all the Canadians out there looking to save some money on everyday products.
I'm sure many of you watched that Extreme Coupon show on TLC.
Well, we don't get many coupons in Canada.
There are websites though that will send Canadians coupons in the mail.
I decided that I would request some for myself.
I got some in the mail and waited for the products to go on sale in the local flyers.
Then, BAM.......I dropped my coupons. LOL!!!!
I saved $32.00 on just the products below.
So, combining my coupons with the sales already on was a big savings.

Here are some of the sites I got the coupons from:

So, if you feel like saving a bit of money, do a google search for Canadian Coupons.


Have a great day.
I will try to blog more.

You have done a great job on your modern quilt! Sometimes it's nice to get into something out of our comfort zone! Enjoy the rest of your summer !!!!

Congrats on finishing your modern bee blocks into a quilt. I like it! Modern quilting is something I have an interest in but have ventured into.

I had no idea that coupons were not prevalent in Canada. I've tried to save money with coupons...I'm just not consistent enough to be successful I think. I guess it would help if I had the paper delivered on Sunday!
