Awe - gust

We are having some delightful weather which makes it so pleasant to be outdoors.  We have had dinner at the picnic table the last two nights.  Mornings tend to be cloudy but by noon the skies have clear and it is wonderful.

We headed over to Shilshole Marina, in order to meet a boat bringing home the two oldest grands.  They have been at the local Camp Fire camp.  Taking a boat to and from camp has been a tradition since at least when I was about 8 or 9, and I attended every year until I was 18.  My daughter and son and their best friends attended and my daughter even worked there for a few years.  So now the tradition continues with the "big ones".  It's a great way to begin the adventure and conclude it.
I have finally found a good sashing fabric for the stitched animal blocks.  It has been washed and ironed.  Photos to follow.

Ahhh ... summer camp. I think every kid ought to experience a week or two at camp. I have very fond memories of Girl Scout camp throughout my childhood & teen years and then working at different camps throughout college. They'll remember those experiences forever. Glad you're having great weather, too!
