July already!

June passed by so quickly, it was a very busy month for us with family birthdays and our anniversary celebrations. Hubby and I had a super time on our cruise - you can see more photos and read about our trip in my travel blog - Aimetu's

My stitching this month has been for Needlecraft Haven's Summer Exchange and a few gifts so unfortunately I cannot share much this post.

A quick word about Needlecraft Haven Forum - we are a small friendly group of stitchers, knitters, card makers, quilters and general crafters. To prevent spam posts and keep our forum safe it is a closed Group BUT membership is free and it's very easy to join.

We've had quite a few new members lately but sadly they haven't posted so after 4 weeks their membership has lapsed. Maybe they just wanted to have a look .... if you join please post so we can chat and share your crafting too .... we have members in the UK, USA and Australia ... here's the sign up link

I have however completed my Temperature Quilt to the end of June .... we had an unusually hot day here in central UK on the 29th, it was a surprise to use my hottest colour. 

It wasn't a surprise to use the hot colours on our cruise, we expected the Mediterranean days to be high and the evenings warm .... thank goodness the cabin had air con, it was quite humid on the balcony.

My stitching plans for July are to finish the gifts, finish and make up the Summer Exchange gift, keep up with my TQ and hopefully do a few hardanger pieces for my church tree .... no holidays planned, although we might pop to Cardiff to visit our daughter, so there should be plenty of stitching time 🙂


  1. Sounds like a fantastic June. I just didn't have time to be a good member of Needlecraft Haven. I kept forgetting to check it. It's a fantastic sweet group though. Love the temperature quilts. We are having a lot of warm temps too here in Indiana. Even have a heat advisory today for temps that will feel like 100 degrees. Have a great July!

  2. Your temperature stitching is lovely. June just flew by, cruising looks like alot of fun!

  3. The TQ looks great with the vibrant hot colours.

  4. Needlecraft Haven sounds great - maybe I'll take a look when I can post a little more consistently. So glad you had a wonderful cruise x

  5. What a wonderful way to celebrate, Happy Anniversary!
    Adding some colour, the temp charts are looking good.
    I don't get on Needlecraft Haven as often as I should, but I'm looking forward to the upcoming exchange!

  6. Sounds like you had a wonderful celebration for your anniversary!
    Your temperature chart looks great!
