At last the blocks of the batik quilt are done and I have begun to work my way around the border. I really have enough of that quilted that I might just put on the binding before going to camp on Saturday.
The + and x blocks are now up to 204. I am thinking of taking the flannel sheet my son sent me for Christmas with me to camp and tacking it up in the back of the craft area for a design wall. I still have around 20 more blocks to cut and sew but they would make fine take-along work if I could get them organized. The biggest challenge is space to do it and camp might be the place.
This past week my daughter and her daughter came for a couple of days and we went to our local amusement park for their annual Hydrangea Festival or Ajisai Matsuri. This is the season for hydrangeas and that day the rides were closed and the price was reduced for those enjoying the festival.

The whole gang.
Probably my favorite is the deep blue one in the first picture but these framed ones came in so many varieties.
This week has been cool and wet so I am glad we went last week. From Saturday I will be in the woods with the boys. I will be teaching Woodcarving and Leatherworking merit badges.and the nature requirements. There will be no currant bushes to connect a computer to and no wireless, even if there were, so I will be on withdrawal from the blogging world. You may not miss me but I know I will be missing you all . I hope there will be a finished batik quilt to show upon my return and maybe a design wall plan too. So a happy rainy season to you all!
