...we went camping this past weekend!
(camping lights are a must)
It was only for two nights and only an hour north of here, but so nice to camp again.
We have Jayco Kiwi, which is a hybrid camper. It's a trailer, but the ends fold out for sleeping, kind of like a pop up, but it pops "out" instead.
I sewed this quilt when I was (about) in 7th grade. I can remember sitting around the dining room table at home when my great aunts taught me to use a piece of sand paper, cut as my template, to hold down the fabric as I cut out squares. It's all from double knits and I can recognize dresses and clothes in it that I wore along with some of my sisters' and Moms' clothes too! I tied it all in yellow yarn and it's backed with a yellow sheet. I got a purple on it in the county fair. Now, many years later it's a warm quilt in our camper. And, in great shape. I'm not sure you could wear out some of those double knits!
We had a great time even though, both nights the clouds rolled in and it rained...and, it scared the little gals.
My oldest daughter joined us for one night from Omaha....
and we saw her new ring!!! Yes, that's right, our oldest is getting married!!! They got engaged about a month ago and just recently got the ring. So, we thought it might sparkle nicely against the camper lights, and it did indeed!
Also, today, she turns 21!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Lauren!!
