Thanks all!

It only fetched $75 in the auction. I was really heartbroken, took me a few days to get over it. I was hoping to at least get $300 for it. It was so much work and material costs were out of my pocket... I did not expect anything in return but was hoping it would pay for a day or two of a camper's stay. Sad

Next projects are for tornado victims in AL, MS & MO. I have been working on simple small quilts for kids and families who have lost it all in these storms.

I was asked a few months ago to make a quilt to be auctioned off on Tim Horton's Camp Day.
I was going to do traditional quilt squares with binding and all but it didn't feel very camp like to me. Camp is discovery, exploration, friendship, fun and memories! A rag quilt became my choice! Each square is out of my head... I have seen similar stuff but, nothing was from an exact pattern and I realized how awesome my quilt stash is lol
Many of the blocks have bead work and needlepoint writing. It took me about 50 hrs of hand stitching, beadwork and cutting and about 20 hrs on the machine and I loved every friggin' second of it! I am so happy quilting. I can't even explain the elation. I just feel content and satisfied when I am done.

We are hoping to get a few hundred bucks from the auction to send a kid to camp! And I did all of it for nothing. Just my way of paying back as my 2 oldest have had the privledge of attending the Tim Horton's Camp that is just north of us and they went for free due to donations from Camp Day. So All I ask is that if you live within 20 miles of a Tim's tomorrow, please go grab a cup of java and toss them a $5! Let em keep the change... that change will change a kids life Smiley

On tv once I saw a room they had painted a navy blue and then fanned the cards out and glued them to the walls to make a border... it looked awesome! Then on the floor they just randomly spread the cards out and clear coated on top to seal it! It was pretty neat and IF I didnt rent I would totally do this to my kitchen floor lol

In my old house I had a wicked awesome wooden shelf in the bathroom. I filled clear wine bottles with colored bubble baths and then put fancy little cork stoppers from the dollarstore in them! It looked really cool and I always had a half dozen choices for a relaxing bubble bath Smiley And every single woman who used the bathroom over a 2 year period asked where I got them and how much they were lol It became a conversation piece!

Or like someone said... make wine! Smiley (I make wine a few times a year... it is a fun hobby!)
