Back up to last week

Here we have a project I did for the Backstreet Quilt Shop in Elkton. This is all done by hand in wool.

It is a Mary Flanagan pattern.  I t was fun to do once I got the stars figured out.

On Thursday of last week I taught a class at the quilt shop.  We made the pattern by Atkinson Designs called "Pockets to Go".   It is a great project to make and very handy to have.  I have made at least 10.  I am loosing count.  Here is a picture of some I made.

What did I do next last week?
Yes, That's me with my first deer.  My husband wanted me to hunt so I told him I would hunt but I wanted to shoot a doe.  No trophy bucks for me, I want good meat to eat.  So, I hunted the early doe hunt this year and got this 85 pound doe.  It is all cut up and in the freezer or canned.

So, Now I can talk about this week.

Happy Labor Day!

We had a busy weekend of camping and driving.  We returned home this morning at 4:30.  Then we all climbed into bed and slept.  I awoke at 8:50 and was done sleeping.   So I got up, made coffee, let the dog out, and got my bags from the van, and took a shower.

While we were gone I went to "The Fabric Patch" in Ironwood, Michigan.  That is a nice quilt shop.  I got lots of great fabrics.  I can't wait to get at them.

While you are at it check out the give away over at
