i think its pretty snappy looking but then again i am a major green freak. so it will take its 1st of many journeys with me this Friday to the Gorge at George, WA where i will take in my 2nd DMB show for the week (1st is tomorrow night in Boise) with a great friend of mine Stephanie.
this will be our 5th year of heading to the Gorge to see DMB & i couldn't think of another person i would rather do it with. Steph is one of those people that when you meet them you feel like you have won the lottery. we have been through thick & thin & the best part is - is that she gets me & all of my quirks & still wants to be my friend.
she is ACES!!!! love ya girl!!!!
This is my pile of stuff for quilt camp.
which i will continue to add to in the coming weeks with every spare minute that i can find.
this past weekend i also go my blocks together for Karrie's Charm Pack Quilt Along. Karrie posted the final step on Sunday morning & so i have the blocks together & the 1st boarder cut. this might be added to the pile above & finished at quilt camp.
the fabrics on the bottom are the 3 boarders inside to outside - left to right.
the next thing i will be cutting up for quilt camp is this yummy pile.
Verna - i have a way cool pattern for this that involves sewing curves & thanks to Julie's video tutorial they will be a breeze with the right foot.
go watch the tutorial - its totally worth it.
tomorrow at o'dark 30 my mom & i drive to Boise. me for the DMB show with my brother & sil and my mom to babysit my niece. we will be back on the road home Wednesday morning. its roughly a 5 1/2 hr drive each way so i am taking some hand work.
i have 2 1/2 buttons on this block to finish & then its on to block 4. i know i am slow with this (i have only had it for 2 yrs) but its getting done. more will get done during the days this weekend at the Gorge.
so it begins,
6 shows, 20 days, 5,000 plus miles
then a 5 day quilt camp
what more could i ask for?????
i feel very blessed for being able to do this.
i will post when i can as well as prep for camp when i can.
enjoy your week!!!!
