Hello to one and all
I have been camping with my two teen grands and every muscle hurts from hiking, kayaking, swimming, etc. But I will keep up!! The high desert temps and dry air has hit us all hard and have to keep pumping liquids into all of us. But boy, do we all sleep good at night!
Tomorrow we head up near the Grand Canyon and staying out in the forest without hookups. Last time we stayed there we watched the elk walk around while sipping our morning coffee. (The bobcat in the tree, however sent me inside!!)
We will be totally out of internet connection, so please keep the rounds going, and posting photos and letting everyone else know you sent or received your next round. I think all but one of the tops are in the hands of the person adding the second round (although it isn't the end of the month yet) Once August comes, I will have more time online and more talkative!
Enjoy your week

Just my daily checking in post. No sewing expected today, hubby has today off and is otherwise working 12 hour shifts/6 days a week for another week (started last week), so we will have some us time as well as run errands and such.

In a bit we will go on a little drive (about 30 minutes each way) to pick up some fresh duck eggs. We have a closer chicken egg producer but ducks are harder to find and it is getting late in the season for them Since hubby went Keto a couple of years ago, he's become quite the fan of fresh eggs as well as non-chicken eggs -- except for quail. Not a fan of tiny eggs.

I should have enough in hand on Tuesday to show my group my anticipated round and discuss my corner options. Still not enough to show here :)

IceBlossom, I'm sure it's enough to show here! :-)

I'll be ready in a day or two... I'm in that second-guessing phase of being committed but that I can still pull back and go a different direction.

While the inspiration hasn't been hard, the second guessing has been brutal!

I think I have a plan figured out just want to do some testing before I commit.
TG sounds like you are having a great time and giving grands lots of memories.
I still cherish the camping/fishing trips with my grandparents.

And since I had the camera out, here are a few pics of my sewing area - it's still a work in progress and probably will be for another year. Got too many other remodeling projects in front of it right now.

I've got Carriem's center on my design wall - waiting for inspiration! The ironing board doubles as a cat bed, so I keep it covered with a lap quilt. I'm planning to build a cat tower of some sort, to give the cat another place to sleep

Great Pictures Cathy. I especially like how you used a cutting mat. And that cat looks very comfortable.

Oh my ! Yes, you do have a couple of sewing machines don't you? It's lovely to have a dedicated space just to play.

Love my bees!!! They are adorable. Thank you!!
