Camp and Sewing

Emily has posted about the camp scholarship fund in our little angel Jackson’s honor. I hope you will visit her blog and have a nice read.www.footprintsandhope.blogspot.com. The above quote is for Emily and her Russ. It sums up their attitude pretty well.

I am a whirlwind of excitement now. Guess what is this weekend !!! THIMBLES CLUB…YEAH BABY. Friday and Saturday and then (drum roll pahleeeze) Monday at 9 am we rock the house (which happens to be my church) with SUMMER STITCH IN 2012. There will be 36 mad for quilting women sewing their brains out and fingers to the bone from 9am – 9pm for 6 days. Yes my friends you heard me right, I said 6 days. My camera is charged up and ready to go. This year promises to be a good one. 

Aside from getting goodie bags ready and planning for the big week I have been working on my project list. (choke, gasp, wheeze). I’ve been doing some big stitch quilting, tons of fun and works up fairly fast. I’m using 3 strands of floss and a crewel needle. I marked my piece with Clover white disappearing ink pen. I have used them before with good success. I was lucky that my motif transferred to the dark fabric through my light box. Lucky yes, very lucky! It is not pretty when I throw myself on the floor and pitch an old fashion southern HISSY FIT! (that would be a tantrum).

Writing today, with a side order of mental breaks called visits to Pinterest. What is wrong with this picture??? My eyes are falling out of my head between non stop sewing, hand stitching, and writing. So what does Pat do? Takes a break from it all by visiting my Pinterest Boards. Me thinks I need an intervention.
