Camping and Quilting

Camping is the sort of thing you make lists for; then you revise them; then you go camping and start all over with a new list because there is a lot you didn’t get right on the first one!

All in all, I didn’t do too badly with my list. In fact, I did rather well with some aspects. I did the worst with fishing. I forgot to dig worms so I had to buy some, only to find out the fish were not biting worms. I re-rigged and lost my first lure to a poor knot and a good sized fish. Being in a hurry doesn’t pay when it comes to fishing. My second lure went down to a snag on the bottom. Tangled line didn’t help either. I forgot to wear my dad’s fishing hat, and that put an end to my fishing. The hiking was awesome, except where I got sunburned. I forever miss some place with the sunscreen.

In the middle of the night there was a terrific wind and rain storm that put my tent staking ability to the test. That one I passed. My new sleeping bag and mat passed the test also. I absolutely loved the location where I was camping, but I will say, shower facilities when you tent camp are a truly nice option – and we did not have them. I will check that out more closely next time because I love my morning shower. The coffee was great though, as was watching the sunrise. Cormorants, ducks, ravens and all manner of hummingbirds shared inIMG_1960 IMG_1986 my love of morning on the lake.

The quilt is done. I also made two pillows, two blankets, and one stuffed owl. He is the cutest thing in person, more so than in the pic, but I did my best.
