About half of this trip was spent camping in a tent. That didn't stop me from sewing! That is what the electrical hookups at campgrounds are for, right?
I finished up this quilt top which is both a baby quilt for a friend who is having a baby in November and my entry for this year's quilt show. Just two weeks to get it hand quilted - better get cracking! It measures about 43" square(ish). It made a dent in my scrap bin, used up all but a couple small squares of that white, and used up most of that striped border (which was leftover from backing my last quilt).
My mom surprised me with a "new" sewing machine while I was visiting. This gem (that she picked up at a yard sale for $20) sews like a charm, and comes complete with sewing stool with all the acoutrements under the padded seat. I didn't have room to bring it home with me since my car was packed with camping stuff plus my sewing machine, but I'll bring it down in January when I go back to New Hampshire to bring my mom south for the winter. I should have Mom tell me the serial number so I can see when this baby was born.
She asked for a clothespin bag while I was there, so I sewed this up on my "new" machine. Simple and quick.
Of course, this trip included lots more than just sewing - campfires, swimming, games with the family, and, of course, FOOD!
