David has been very good to take pictures while I’m in Florida so I can keep up with what is going on at the house. It is sure hard not to be there and see it in person and to have a say in what is happening. Hopefully we planned well and all of the questions that needed to be handled are or will be taken care of.
At the house as of Friday evening we have 3 walls on the craft room and more paint and trim are going up in the house. I really love the trim, it sure changes how it looks.
We did have to change up our travel plans a little. Paula and Cynthia R. were to meet us Tuesday night and then we were going to leave out Wednesday morning. I got a call from Paula letting me know that she had too much work and would not be able to go, so it was just Cynthia and I.
Upon our arrival in Starke, Florida we made a visit to their Walmart to get a few snacks and little odd supplies. I remembered that Vicky had a rug and I wanted one too. So off we went to look for a rug. Cynthia found a really cute one and then we both got these perky rugs! It was a hit at the retreat and several of the ladies had to go get them one too.
Wahoo, I finally finished my last bag of paper piecing on my Judy Niemeyer Captain’s wheel pattern Friday and I got to page 16 of 20 in. Which also means to block construction! Paper piecing can be a little on the monotonous side since you are basically doing the same thing over and over. However, it is rewarding when you are putting it together – things go together pretty well.
Saturday I worked on my sections and finally got all of my big blocks done. I didn’t think I was going to get there, luckily I did!
We are having a great time here at Camp Blanding, we have laughed, ate, told stories and just really enjoyed getting to know a great group of women and seeing what some of them are working on. We got to pass out our churn dash swap, it was almost like Christmas, and we each had a nice pile. I am really looking forward to putting those together.
Thank you all for all of the happy birthday wishes, I had a great birthday. I am truly blessed; I hope you are blessed by your daily threads. Love and hugs,
