Finally Friday!

Despite a very busy week of working on our home, having our oldest daughter and her fiance come to visit, and coming down with a rotten summer cold I did manage to fit in some sewing time yesterday!  I finished sewing all the triangles I cut out for my big "Great Outdoors" blog hop project for Island Batik.  I even trimmed all the corners last night and got them divided up into the sets I want to sew together.
As you can see, it's a big pile!  But not as big as this guy...
We took a nice drive with Nick and Naomi down the Oregon Coast and paid a visit to Paul Bunyan at the Trees of Mystery in Northern California, it was a fun day!  My throat wasn't feeling as bad this day, but my ears were driving me a little crazy with all the driving up and down hills. Still worth it and a ton of fun!

I may say that my idea of camping is Motel 6, but I still love nature - and enjoying a day out in the BIG woods is one of my favorite kind of days! 

I haven't had a chance to read all of my fellow Island Batik Ambassadors posts this week yet, so join me in catching up - make sure you enter the drawings, and leave comments - it really feels great to know that people are reading your posts and viewing the projects we make!

Monday, August 6 - All A Flutter - Yellow Cat Quilt Designs, Creative Blonde
Tuesday, August 7 - Birds N’ Bees - Ark Angel Creations, Patterns By Jen
Wednesday, August 8 - Canterbury Manor - Sally Manke, Powered By Quilting
Thursday, August 9 - Eclectic Garden - Desert Bloom Quilting, Sew Karen-ly Created
Friday, August 10 - Vintage Morris - MooseStash Quilting, Devoted Quilter

And do let your local shop know that they should carry some of the wonderful fabrics from Island Batik.  It always helps to know what your customers are interested in when you are ordering for a shop - you would be amazed at how many choices a shop owner has to make!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Sounds like a lovely visit - but it does look like a lot of triangles. Look forward to seeing it done!
