I would love for you to join me (a retired senior)in my zany crafting adventures with quilting (waaaaay too much fabric); scrapbooking (will I ever catch up?); redwork; counted cross stitch; crossword puzzles; reading; and cooking.

                         Here are the first 12 blocks sewn in groups of four to make 
                              a row of three across =ling @ 48"

                         {Difficult getting a picture across, as my room is so small,
 so--I went into the corner of the closet to try to snap this one ROTFLOL}

"Julierose, go to your closet!!" LOL

Anyway..I like the flavor of outdoorsey camping these fabrics show:
rocks, skies, trees, streams, campers, music --and--
there will be the  guitars for the back--

I am limiting myself to making 3/day so that I don't HURT MYSELF AGAIN!! aAARRRGGGHHH..

Hubster Honey (HH) and I were just wondering last night
 if a day would go by when one or both of us would not get hurt!!
Ahhh the joys of aging...but as Mom used to say :

  "Don't complain--you're looking DOWN at the grass, not UP!!" 👴👵

So, I am happy that this Friday I can sew...

Hugs for a healthy, happy weekend...
