Happy 4th of July 2017

Happy Independence Day to All who Visit my Blog!

It's wonderful time in our nations history to celebrate our freedoms! Never stop! God Bless America!

Where freedom is, there is my nation. — Benjamin Franklin

Another Glamping Trip!

My husband took me to Reno last week to see the quilt show in Reno
Quilt Show Reno

There was a beautiful display of Lion King Quilts that were entered into the Lion King Quilt Challenge

I am posting a few photos of the ones on display at the quilt show

There were so many beautiful and creative Lions, the one that won was a bit shocking to all the guest of the quilt show and to myself. My favorite is the one on the bottom right, the winner is the one at the bottom left. 
I guess it's interesting, but it barely looks like a lion.

While on our trip to Reno we drove to Lake Tahoe Ca and left the trailer parked in Reno, we went just for the day. We were married at Lake Tahoe 29 years ago on July 9th.

This is at Emerald Bay Lake Tahoe a very super special and beautiful photo spot. It's probably the most popular spot to take photos of yourself and Love and family and friends.

This is a small quilt wall hanging, I have not quilted the top yet. It looks a lot better in person. I used a pattern from Edyta Sitar's new book. I am doing a lot of Edyta Sitar's designs right now.

Mom looks great she is home now. I am her caretaker and it's a lot of work! she has a long way to go to getting better. It's hard for her to walk and get around. This was her first day out holding the bear I bought for my trailer.
We were on our way to Doctor appointments when we stopped for lunch.

Cute sign

I made two of these little mug rugs for the 4th of July. Super cute and fun to make. I used Edyta Sitar's Speciality Set, Serendipity.

Have a Happy Safe 4th of July! Happy Birthday America!



  1. So wonderful you were able to get away and celebrate your anniversary early :) That looks like a neat quilt show, and I totally agree with you, not sure why that quilt won, maybe so unusual. Love your wall hanging that is just gorgeous!!
    Good to hear your mom is better, it does take a lot of work but I am sure she really appreciates it. Your mug rug is so cool too, neat idea!

  2. Hi Kat! Thank you for stopping by my blog. I'm happy to know someone else who has a camper--I may have some questions for you since we haven't yet taken our trailer out and we are total newbies. Last night I booked a two week stay in Gulf Shores, AL, at the end of October, so I am super excited about that. I hope you have a very blessed new week. Big hugs!

  3. Hi Kat, thanks for visiting my blog. I enjoy your camping pictures. I agree with your choice in the lion. Glad your mom is doing better too! There is no place to put my url.


Have a wonderful day! ~Kat
