We had a great camping trip

September 28, 2008

We didn’t catch as many fish as we would have liked to but we had a great time anyway. We had a very nice camping spot next to the lake and it was very nice to just watch all the fish and the birds. We did some reading, took several walks, fished and sometimes just sat and stared at either the lake or the camp fire. It don’t take much to entertain us.

Jazzy was the hit of the campground and everyone had to play with her and of course she loved it. I did have to work Friday but I just had a little longer drive to school then went back to the campground after work. It worked out just fine.

I didn’t get any sewing done this weekend but did get to use my 9patch and stripes quilt as I had made it for our camper. It sure did keep us warm.

Well, I guess that’s all I have to say right now. I have to get a shower and curl my hair as I have to work tomorrow at the school. I hope all of you had a great weekend.


Nice Weekend

September 21, 2008

We have had a rather laid back, lazy weekend. Yesterday there was a picnic at the lake for the residents. A real estate company that sells a lot of houses in our subdivision hosts the picnic every year as a thank you. They furnish BBQ and all the stuff that goes with it and the residents takes a dish to share. There was over a hundred people there and all I had to cook was brownies. Worked for me. There was also a band and I managed to get three dances from my dear hubby. Nothing fast for him but I love to slow dance with him. He told the band he didn’t remember the songs being as long as they were playing them. Of course everyone laughed at that.

Today was mostly laundry and house cleaning. I did manage to get the binding on my nine patch and stripes. Now it is done. Yippee!

I made a sausage quiche earlier and Lynn and I have eaten it for lunch and supper. I had a peach with mine. Lynn thought that was weird. Tasted good to me.

We will be leaving Wednesday on a little camping trip so I will be offline from Wednesday to next Sunday. I just checked the weather and it is supposed to be gorgeous next week. We might even catch a few fish.

I hope everyone had a great weekend.

Cornerstones Quilt

September 1, 2008

I have been working on a Cornerstones quilt and I have completed the body. I love the colors as they look kind of retro to me.

What do you think of the colors? I like sewing the framing border, which is white and I will put it on as soon as I can find the spot where I put the border strips so I would know where they were, and the outside border. Do you ever put things up and forget where you put them?

This will be my next project. It is called Swirling Leaves and Logs by Chris King. It is in the October/November Quilt Magazine.

Here is my fabric choices. At least some of them, I may add more as I go along.

Hope everyone had a great Labor Day and will have a good week.
