July UFO

Here is my July UFO. I managed to get the top finished. I didn't get it quilted my machine is having problems which I haven't been able to figure out yet. Squeaker just had to check it out up close and personal. This was a kit from Connecting Threads and went together quickly. Now to get started on the August quilt.

Anyone Else Running Behind?

It's hard for me to believe that it's already July. It has been a busy three weeks since my last post. DH started on my shed and got it almost done before he had to leave. This will give me a place to store overflow until I can get through it to determine how much I really need to keep and what should find a new home.
The hollyhocks are finally blooming and the grapes are growing. DH cut the grape vines way back this spring and then worried because it took them awhile to show signs of growth. They are loaded with tiny clusters of grapes. If all of them ripen we will be making grape jelly and possibly some wine with them.
When Dh returns from his trip my brother and his wife are coming to stay for a week and see the sights around the area. It will be nice to see them again. That being said I guess I'd best get started on my long list of things to do so I'll be ready for company.
