Fantastic Weekend (Photo Heavy) + Giveaway Reminder

Before I show you camping photos I want to show you my only finish for August.

I made this table runner a couple of years ago.  Finally got it quilted.  This is going to be a Christmas present...not sure for who yet...lol

I also got another Dear Jane block done.

This is block #1.  I now have 2 blocks done.  At this rate my descendants will have to finish it.  

Don't forget the giveaway.

You have until Saturday the 24th.  I will pick a winner on Sunday the 25th. Please be sure to leave a comment stating you are a follower and you will get a second chance if you blog about it.  Make sure I have an email address to contact you.  

 I think this will be the first project I am going to work on.  So many wonderful quilts in this book.

Now for our camping trip...  The weather was beautiful.  We camped at Algonac State Park which is on the St. Clair River.  

It was so relaxing.  Lots of freighters went by but I was too lazy to get up and get my camera out of the trailer.

Those of you who have read by blog for a while know that I love to go for walks and take pictures of wild flowers.  Well get ready....

 We found wild grapes, red berries, white berries, black eyed Susan, Queen Anne's Lace, and so much more.  

The last picture I have for you is a guest we had come by at every meal.

She wasn't shy.  She would jump up on the picnic table begging for scraps.

We had such a nice time camping even if it was only 4 nights.  Lots of relaxing, reading and quilting.  I got another 2 squares of my Henrietta Whiskers quilt quilted. 

I hope you had a wonderful weekend.  Thanks for stopping by and come again.

Hugs, Cathy

Love both the DJ block and the table runner... both are very nice! Mebbe some day I'll work on a DJ for me... some day!

Glad to hear you had a good time camping... beautiful scenery and gorgeous flora!

Ha ha! I know what you mean about the Jane blocks going so slowly.
When I started my NY Beauty, I figured my baby would be in college by the time it was finished!

That second block is cute, tho
