Well, back from a family road trip in USA. We toured 6 States in 2 weeks, highlights included Yellowstone, Deadwood, Little Bighorn and Mount Rushmore. I did manage to visit 4 Quilt Shops and got lots of lovely fabric!!!

All that touring meant I did not get much sewing done, a piece of variegated Hardanger while sitting by a pool and a piece of chain stitch - both of which I will probably use in travelling books.

I got home Sunday Lunch time and have been busy putting together the 35 x 9" blocks, layering up and machine quilting in the ditch. started doing hand quilted circles and round the appliqu├ęd parts - my deadline is mid October, so on track. I would like to finish by the end of next week when I have a cataract operation.

Been so busy with latest quilt for Linen and Lace, not had much time for other sewing. I did go to Embroiderers Guild meeting last Tuesday, and had managed to get a few things ready for the travelling books.

Can not wait to get back on with my camel project, so nearly finished!
