June OMG

A beautiful sunny start to June.  My goal was to finish quilting Mary's boy quilts--
Aren't they lovely?  Both contain a lot of the same fabrics, but set very differently!  They ready for binding.  My OMG for June is to finish binding this Blue & White Irish Chain--

It's for DD Laura Beth who asked for a blue/white quilt, very plain, only two colors.  I'm linking with Elm Street Quilts.

I'll be back in the camper until October.  This year I am not volunteering at the Visitor Center, instead I'll be working at a campground gate booth, still with the US Army Corps of Engineers.  I am going to miss the Visitor Center, I was there for 15 seasons!   Camping season was supposed to start the middle of April, instead its June 1st. 

In preparation of working I sorted my supplies--
I'm not paranoid about Covid19, I prefer "proactive".  If spraying/wiping prevents one case, it was worth it.  I did not buy any of these special for camping/working, this is my "collection" from our house/vehicles/camper (some are partially used).  Each vehicle has a container of wipes.  This is nothing new, we ALWAYS have a container of wipes in each vehicle.  Even tractors & the combine will have one when we are using them.  

I wish you a beautiful June.  Summer is FINALLY here, I am so happy!

All of those quilts are beauties!

Are you at the same location for volunteering, but just a different job? Or totally different park?

The collection of cleaning supplies made me chuckle. I still have not been able to find any disinfecting wipes, but my daughter bought me some last week. Now I just need to get to Sioux Falls to get them. :-)

I really love the quilt in the first picture. I looked at the border and said to myself, "NO". Then realized it was a stripe fabric. OK then. The blue/white Irish Chain is so striking. Simple and be great.

Which campground are you at? Cottonwood? Hope you have a great summer and enjoy your new position.

I'm tending to buy a container of disenfecting cleaner wipes each week at the store. Not hoarding tho, as I really am using them daily to clean.
