Another R/W/B album block--
There are stars and flags in there. The red stars bled while I was pressing the fabric, but I rinsed it several times and it quit, probably just excess dye. The handsome gentleman holding the block is Dave Becker--Operations Project Manager at Gavins Point Project. Dave is one of the people who make volunteering fun.
Volunteers are a valuable resource for many places. I've been volunteering at Gavins Point for 10 years. There is a national website volunteer.gov with opportunities all over the United States. Many local opportunities exist, just ask.
Monkey Wrench blocks
Missouri Star Disappearing Pinwheel blocks
The week looks pretty busy but I hope to squeeze in some sewing time. Since I have limited room I stick mainly to piecing in the camper. Although clutter doesn't bother me, I am OCD! After making the album blocks I had to organize my box of 2.5" squares. Yes, its the size of a large shoebox. Enough squares to make at least 1-2 quilts. Please see everyone's design wall posts at Patchwork Times.
lose misplace something and I go crazy! Yesterday I lost misplaced the scooter keys. There is only ONE key for the ignition. (I am having a hard time finding a key place that has that blank). I searched for 2 hours. My garbage went to the dumpster two days ago. Yes, I went and dug it out of the dumpster and searched it. Don't ask! But no keys were in the trash. I had given up the search and planned to spend $$$ getting a new ignition/key made. As I wandered my campsite lamenting the loss of the keys I spied them on the picnic table under some flower pots. YIPPEE!! The Corps gives away keychains (floating ones for boaters) that I am putting the scooter keys on. Hopefully they will be easier to keep track of.
Have a great week!!
