Whoo-hoo! Camp Weekend!

My friend Chrissy has invited me and a couple others to a private retreat at GS camp while she works as the camp supervisor this weekend. Thanks, Chrissy! 

Tools and equipment are all packed up and ready to go. 

Several projects are all kitted up, including my LQS BOM which meets tomorrow morning, my flannel plaid project, and a UFO that was put on hold last summer.

Let's see how much I can accomplish. Of course, much of the fun of camp is just hanging out and gabbing all weekend. So whether I accomplish much or not really doesn't matter.

Speaking of accomplishments, the blocks of my batik spiral project are almost all sewn into rows. Three more seams are needed for each row to be complete: the center and the quarters of each row. Here's the upper 3/4 of it on the wall:

So far the width has shrunk 6" with another 1-1/2" to go, for a finished flimsy width of 64".  The length is still ceiling to floor, but it will shrink to 84" when the row seams are sewn.

I am not taking this project to camp because it would be too easy to get the pieces out of place or turned in the wrong direction. This one is better off left on the big wall at home, and I have plenty of smaller projects packed that'll keep me busy.

Linking up with Whoop Whoop Friday over at Confessions of a Fabric Addict.


  1. Hope you are having a great time. I'm going on a retreat with my sister in law in July and am getting excited. What to bring... what to work on while there??

  2. Hope you are having a very fun time and getting a bit done here and there too!
