gone camping.

gone camping.

Early every summer, we camp at Hunting Island state park on the southern coast of South Carolina. It is a most delightful place to be, with ocean front camp spots and so much wildlife.

I hope to enjoy the road trip as well! Fingers crossed for sanity.

Yellow Bottled Rainbows

Before leaving today, I worked a bit on the yellow Bottled Rainbow block. Thanks to some donations from my friend Mary Claire, I had so many lovely scraps to choose from.  Looking forward to stitching this up when we return!

Enjoy the Weekend!!!

  1. I am so jealous!! We accidently got a cabin at Hunting Island several years ago (I say that b/c someone cancelled just as I was looking.... only about 2 weeks before going - in August!). It was the most wonderful place for us to be with our kids. It was truely magical. I had heard that many cabins were washed away - so you must be camping... for real!! Have a fantastic time!!

    Hope you had a wonderful time with your family. What projects do you use the purl cotton on. Any chance you might feature a little project online for those of us that love the thread but don't quite know what to do with it?

  12. Bev - Thanks for your comment! I use embroidery floss (shown here) for embroidery all the time on random projects like coasters, coin purses, zip pouches, pillows.... The purle cotton thread is great for hand quilting and sashiko embroidery. Hope that gets your ideas flowing!
