Summer Discovery Camp!

My summer continues to leave me with little time to sew. Last week I had my annual "Grammy Camp" (post to come) and this and next week find me teaching an eight day Discovery Camp at our local Middle School. My camp: Community Photojournalism. We're having a great time.
"Campers" are learning the attributes of taking a good photo and use them to write blog posts to share their ideas. Each student picked a place within walking distance of our school to highlight.

 It's been fun to watch them take pictures beyond the world of "selfies" and
begin to see themselves and the world through the eye of a "photojournalist". 
Unfortunately, due to our school's internet server, we were unable to use any blogging host outside of  the "Google Classroom", thus the kids can only share their blogs with eachother. But they are enjoying this new experience of combining photos with writing and are truly "happy campers."
Take note, next Tuesday we'll be celebrating our 200th Tuesday Archives Linky with a 
$25.00 gift certificate from Fat Quarter Shop.

I'm hoping to get some sewing in this upcoming Sunday. Until then, I can be found in the classroom and Friday and Saturday on the golf course as hubby and I are off for another fun weekend away.

Three years ago I made my mom this table-runner.
The little wool flowers were fun to stitch and it was quick to put together once I had them finished.
Now that I think about it, I really need to make myself a table-runner.
Happy Tuesday. I'm looking forward to seeing what ya have to share this week.

Happy Tuesday everyone! 
Happy Tuesday everyone. Soooo, I don't pre-wash my fabric. I have never had a problem with uneven fabric shrinkage or colors running. I do however, always use Shout Color Catchers with my first washes. The more the contrast in colors, like this red and black with white quilt pictured above, the more sheets I use. I'll use anywhere from 2-4 sheets depending on the quilt size and quilt colors.


SWAP IS CLOSED.
