We are heading off today for our week in the woods at Allegany State Park. Boy, do we NEED this. Life has just been out of control and some down time is just the answer. No electricity, no running water in the cabin..BLISS!
It does require some thought on what to bring along to work on, since there is no electricity. I am bringing along the Giant New York Sunflower quilt (up on the header here) to do some more handquilting on when the light is good and I will be bringing along some yarn and needles to start a pair of fingerless gloves (how I LOVE those things) when the light isn't as good. I am sure an extra project or two will end up in there.
The kindle is a definite, lots of board games and some good hiking shoes. I won't have much accomplished by the time I get back, but hopefully I will be refreshed and rejuvenated so I can make some good progress when I get home!
Btw..you can still vote at the online quilt contest for my quilt, Pete and Bev's Hideaway, at http://quiltinggallery.com/blog-posts/ The quilts there are so gorgeous, it is worth a peek!!!
Take care, my friends, and see you in a week!!!
