What online block sources do you know?

Now and then I crave peace and quiet, eating when I want and just enjoying the quiet of nature. Yesterday we went to our camper and we had already discussed it would be quiet time. When we arrived 4 couples that we are close to were all there. Had a great time but so much for peace and quiet. Arrived home today and ordered some real camping supplies. Hubby is not happy with me because he is worried about my safety. Going to give it a try. Just a day or two, I will be car camping and taking a instant set up 2 person screen tent
I have always wanted to camp solo, and off the grid. It would be so peaceful being able to read, knit or just craft with no one around to bother me.

Speaking of Memphis, I'm going there tomorrow, through the weekend. My daughter and I are embarking on a little business venture together. She has a couple of "venues" now in an upscale antique store. One is for babies and young children. I am making stroller and crib quilts to sell in the baby venue. I've been busy for weeks stippling my fingers to the bone, and tonight I'm washing all of them. They should crinkle well with their 80/20 batting. Eventually I will add pillows and probably bags and some outfits. My daughter would like to have some of my crocheted animal dolls too, but they take so long to make it really isn't worth it. I just make them for the grandkids' gifts.

Waiting, waiting for this boom to start. Maybe I'll make my own blocks while I wait.
I have been throwing around participating in some local craft fairs with some of my crafts. Other than quilting, I love to knit and sew. Bags and purses, baby items, hats and scarves are all the items I have made for a small booth. In the fall we always have 4 or 5 in and around the community, by next fall I should have some more made.

Terri - enjoy it one night at a time. Pick a safe spot. You can do it!

SewBiz - I we had a dog like that. I couldn't take a walk without her - but couldn't walk with her! Let us know what are the sellers in your venue. I see so many items made and always wonder how much they sold. I give everyone credit as I am not one that could sew like that.

Bibliostone such darling fabric, love the camo like fabric with the frogs.

Klaws, your fabric is beautiful, all those colors are going to make a beautiful quilt.

Hav4, first thing I thought of when I saw your fabric was Kass would have had a blast creating something unique with it. It's going to be fun to see what everyone makes.

Well, I tested positive for Covid today. It was really unavoidable since it's all over my facility. Just hope it is just a little runny nose and cough and nothing more....

LogCabin82, sorry to hear that. Hopefully it’ll be a light case. Take care.
