Late last week my friend, Anne, determined that she could get away to the river for a couple of days so she invited me down for a quick craft weekend. So I've been here since Saturday evening.
It's always a treat to be able to come here no matter how short the visit. The weather has been really mild for late July so we've gotten in a couple of good walks. But mostly we've done a lot of sewing.
I am (was) two months behind in my Rainbow Scrap Challenge and since that project stays ready for travel it's what I brought. I started with the batik project and got about 80 blocks made. I need a little over 30 blocks a month for this project. I didn't have enough red and yellow charm squares so I added dark blue to make my quota.
This is the quilt that Anne is working on. She started these applique heart years ago with two purposes in mind. She needed a travel hand sewing project and she wanted to learn applique. This quilt has been everywhere! It's been to London at least a dozen times. It's been to Spain, Italy, Brazil and all over the US. It's really exciting to see it all come together.
We head home this evening so I still have time to work on my other RSC blocks.Maybe I can get completely caughtyup before the 1st rolls in.
