We were off camping again…….fun and pretty! My long time quilting buddy, Lani, lives down the road a bit from camp, so we had ourselves a Quilt Camp day at camp……..FUNNNNN!!!! There’s my buddy ….oh look at our messy sewing table. Oh well, we had the best time and I actually used my sewing machine…..SHOCK!!!! I decided to work on a couple of Kim Schaefer’s Calendar quilts. I have had all the months cut out for a few years…. (I am so bad). July is pieced and fused, buttonholing to happen. August is partially done.
Finally some progress in the sewing department! Lani always comes with goodies. Yummy Chocolate Crispy Bars that were really delic and very low in calories. There were a few more, but we were snacking a bit. She just got a pile of quilts back from her quilter and brought some of them along for a trunk show at camp. The Trip Around The World holds special memories. When we started quilting together way back in the 80’s there were 4 of us that met every week. We each selected two fabrics and that’s what’s in that quilt. Great quilts Lani.
Another favorite day was catching up with our friends Peggy and Rodger who we hadn’t seen in 20 years. Our daughters met in preschool and were best friends….our families shared lots of fun times. When the girls were in 4th grade we moved away, and as life goes, life gets busy. It is so amazing to be back in touch. It felt like yesterday that we were hanging out! So funny to think 20 years ago we didn’t even have cell phones.
I brought along some of my own quilts to bind ….again aging nicely in my sewing closet for the past couple years. Hey wait a minute look at that cute little trailer in the background! Hold the phone….it’s stinkin’ cute and you know what I’m thinking? I am really expecting Pam Kitty, or Lori Holt or Nanette to pop out of that thing. Darn. No. such luck! But that is one cute trailer! We never did get invited over for a look see…but I bet it’s super cute in there!
Now back home and settled in for time with The Dots….missed them like crazy. We will have lots of playing to get to. It was very nice to get back to a bit of quilting and to have four bindings checked off my to do list!
So what’s everyone else been up to?
