My stuff is packed....

I'm ready for camp!!  Our church association has a crafters retreat every spring, and this year we prevailed!  Tuesday through Saturday  morning instead of  just the weekend!  Yeehaw!  (But since I live 3 miles away, I will be going home at night to sleep in my own bed.)  DH is coming home Thurs. night, so last minute house cleaning and frig purging was done today.  I am looking forward to long hours of quilting, friends, and spiritual renewal.


Here's the apron I just made for the shop.  It is VERY cute on--a fashion statement!

Blocks close up

Here is a photo of the blocks. Hope you're not bored yet!! I have 16 of the star on the right left to put together, then setting blocks and borders. I'm adding a third border to make it bigger. If you want to see the quilt completed in Brenda's colorway, go to Robin Place Fabrics on my blog list. (There are also some other color choices from the Sat. class)

was made big time on the Princess Mystery--however, no photos until after the second class on Saturday--I'd be dead meat if I "solved" the mystery before its time!! But I will tell you I am gonna make a couple more of this pattern and DH really likes it too!

Design Wall

looks like this . Another small quilt just needs to be put together, but I've been doing homework for the Princess Mystery, and Brenda gives lots of it so we have blocks after one day of class. So that's a good thing! So I am prepared for class on Wednesday. Just have to pack up and hopefully not forget anything! I have been known to do that, but I'm only 10 minutes away--5 if there's no slow traffic and I hit the lights right!
DH just put his fabulous mac and cheese with sausage casserole in the oven. I know... how do you spell spoiled?!?

Strings are up

on the design wall. And now they are gonna come back down since I have decided to make many and then see how they will go together. By the way, my design wall is white, not blue!! And I don't like blue, so what color do you see??!!

I've been dieing to show you the string blocks trimmed and gorgeous, but I MUST get Becca's mystery blocks sewn together and off the design wall---only three more seams to go.........Made 24 8 1/2 " blocks and I hardly used any of the scrap pile! I'll be able to make a zillion quilts from scraps.....who knew?!?
