Anyway, I am collecting my squares and strips and I plan on starting a new project, Bonnie Hunter's Oklahoma Backroads. It will be a wedding present that I need for late July. I have a mystery quilt clue that I plan to work on and maybe a UFO??? I plan on taking too much to work on.
I finished the mystery quilt from Quilts 4 Military, which was partially complete and on my design floor last Monday. If I decide to put borders on it, I will also take it along on the retreat. I have a navy blue wide fabric for the backing so no need to sew on it. If I put borders on it, I may use some of the backing fabric. It looks rectangular in this photo but it is actually square.
I didn't get a chance to post a stash report yesterday so I haven't counted the fabric in the top. Hopefully next Sunday I should have an extra good report after the retreat.
Here is a little treat for Judy L. It's a shame it is so heavy or I would have sent it to her to accompany her solar oven.
Many years ago, possible 35 or so, my BIL sent us this ROCK POT for a gift. We did a lot of camping and I guess he thought it would be practical. He doesn't camp but he bought one for himself as well.
My husband was cleaning out his workshop and came across this gem from long ago. It was never used. I sent a photo to my BIL and he was surprised we still had it. He had gotten rid of his 3 years ago when he moved. I don't know why we didn't get rid of ours when we moved 25 years ago.
Anyway we all had a good laugh. It has been given to Goodwill so maybe someone will actually get to use it.
