Kids Camp

This week of August is Kids Camp at Memaw's house.

 We hope the Texas Grands can join us next year.

This one is for you, Kay C!

We  managed to make a few masks, trying different styles and fits to make sure we come up with the best fit mask for school.

We did a lot of playing and eating of ice cream. 

Plus, we baked an upside down pineapple cake which really had these guys intrigued. The cake was for Jackson's birthday. He is 9 years old today.  Happy Birthday, Jack!

Our first Quilters Trek Winner

This year, Quilter's Trek (formerly known as Row by Row) expanded the rules to include 2 winners at each shop, each winning 15 fat quarters.

Today, our first winner came in when Dianna Deskin from Johnston, IA came in with this quilt.

Diana picked out her prize of 15 FQs plus a certificate of accomplishment and a bonus gift of 9 of our own patterns as a bonus gifts.

Here is a picture of her label showing where she collected kits. New this year, Trekkers can order kits by mail so Dianna took advantage of that to get kits from some shops she had hoped to visit this year on vacation, a vacay that got Covid nixed.

Maggies' First Quilt

Maggie came in to show me her first quilt. True to her nature, she made it for someone else, a comfort quilt for the son of a friend. The fabrics represent two of his favorite teams.  Nice job, Maggie!

Iowa Gifts

Christy Vilsack stopped by to pick up some Sweet Corn Pot Holder kits to give as Iowa gifts. How sweet is that? She had me prepare her purchase for porch pick up, thus the long-distance picture.
