Time for some stitching......  And here is proof.

This same corner border feature will be in the upper left hand corner.  I is interesting how this design progressed.  I found the verse and loved it so much I thought I needed to design a quilt around it.  I hope it will look good over our bed.  I'm thinking that once the leaves are needle turned they look kind of sparse, so I believe I need to add more.

This the last of the Riley Blake fabric that I have to share with you.  This is called the meadow line.  Their are more pieces to this line, but this is all I have.  It comes in the navy tones as well as the Autumn shades pictured below.

Abbie and Chad have asked me to go camping with them up in the Uinta Mountains, and I believe I am game to go.  It will be tent camping, so I need to dig out my cot and my cushy pad to sleep on.  I do not do so well on the ground anymore.  Since Bruce is impaired he will not be going with us, but then he never really enjoyed camping anyway.  It was something I always did with the kids, and then he would come up and help us pack up and move us home.  I look back and I have memories to treasure from those camping experiences with my children.  So the conclusion of this story is that I will not be blogging for the next few days.  We plan on returning home this coming Sunday in time to celebrate Grandpa's 88th birthday.  I will try to remember to get some pictures of our adventure.
