Every year on or about that date I pack up all my stuff and head to Peterborough Ontario and go to Quilt camp. Of course there is more to it than just packing... I organize the camp so every year I have lots to do getting everyone organized to go to camp. Then I have to take time and plan what I will take. (Which always ends up being way more than I can possibly do!)
This year I planned to take UFO's (unfinished objects)... because I have a lot of them. Some I should just stop calling UFO's and start calling them FIIADWTP's!!! (forget it, I am done with this project).
So I packed up my bag(s) with several very old projects, some Nickle's (5" squares) in case I felt like completing one of several nickel projects I had started and promised myself, no trips to Fabricland while I was at camp... hence no new projects!
Being confined to a large room with 40 other quilters is plenty of motivation to work on a project, but only bringing UFO's started out feeling like a bit of a mistake. Everyone around me was working on something new. But I dragged out my first project and everyone around me jumped at the chance to remind me that I had started it many years ago at another camp.
|Mystery Quilt started 2008|
Next out of the bag... another quilt I had started at camp, the first time I attended camp at Elim. I had bought the template and pattern on a recent trip to NFLD and decided it was going to get finished at this camp...
|Newfie Quilt started September 2010|
|My friend Aimee took a picture of me working on that Newfie Quilt... I was in a big mess! LOL|
Ok... enough for today... stay tuned for (Camp part 2)
