We’re well into August, and soon Summer will be over. Did it ever start in Ottawa? We’ve had a cooler than normal and very wet summer here. For me who loves it hot and sunny, I keep waiting for those days. I’m glad to be heading South next week, where I hope I’ll find some of that heat and sunshine.
What better way to say goodbye to the summer that never was, than having a Lazy Days of Summer Photo Contest.
What have you been working on this summer? (or this winter for my lovely quilting friends in the southern hemisphere).
Send me a photo via email of your latest quilting project. If it’s not 100% done, that’s OK too. Include your name, quilt title and your blog address (if you have one). Just one submission per person, please.
Submissions will be accepted up to the end of August 31, 2008.
Every week or so, I’ll do a blog post of the previous week’s submissions.
Early September, site visitors will be able to vote for their favourite. I’ll announce the winners around September 10, 2008.
There will be three lucky winners. Here are the prizes.

And, Lynn over at Fiber Fantasies has very generously donated a dozen gorgeous hand-dyed fat quarters. We’re going to split the dozen for two winning prizes of 6 each. (I wish I could enter, as I love these fabrics… wow!)
Lynn wrote: “When I hand dye cottons, I use PFD cotton, ProChem reactive dyes, rinse excess with Synthrapol, then machine wash in hot water with Synthrapol. They are ‘ready to use’.”
P.S. Feel free to use the Lazy Days of Summer Photo Contest graphic at the top of this post on your own site to promote the contest. Thanks!
