Putzing Along

I have almost recovered from the past camping weekend, just in time to prepare for "Quilt Camp North" this coming weekend. 
It's a long drive to the "great white  north" (hopefully not white at this time of year!)  but I am looking forward to a relaxing time of sewing and visiting. I haven't seen my friend Deanna since this time last year, so believe me, there will be lots of catching up to do. We plan to sit in her gazebo and do nothing but stitch... YES!
My sewing room is a busy place since I am organizing which projects get to come to quilt camp, and which ones have to stay home. Of course I always take enough sewing along to keep me busy for a year!
I've also been busy cutting, sewing, and making block components for my next scrap squad quilt. This photo of my work station makes me very happy - see how organized everything is?!? Aren't those the cutest clips to keep my blocks together in groups of 10 or 20. I can see at a glance how many blocks I have finished, and there are no pins to deal with.

  1. Have fun at quilt camp. Wouldn't it be wonderful to stay a year ampnd finish everything? Since you can't, I hope you make lots of great progress.

  3. Good luck with your camp, sounds fun. And I have spied cherries in a bowl on your work table. I love cherries, but they are in season such a short time here. We don't really have the right climate for them, so they are also terribly expensive usually.

  4. I have to admit to be just a little jealous of having a quilty friend(s) to have a quilting getaway with. I long for some good quilty friends.

  5. I use the "clips" for all sorts of sewing projects... including holding binding as I hand sew it down.

  7. I use those clips to hold my Alphabitties on the cut pieces for my Snapshots and Farm Girl blocks I make. The little ones are tiny to work with. Much cheaper than the Clover clips. Have fun making your trip up North! Quilting with friends is the BEST.

  8. Do only the best behaved projects get to come with you to quilt camp? And do you lock the naughty ones in a dark closet while you are away? That'll teach 'em! : )
    The cherries look delicious!
