Another weekend at the cabin

When the quilt meeting last thursday was over Irene and I was ready to drive to the cabin where three quilting friends was waiting for us. 


As usual I had brought a lot of projects.  And I got a lot done.  Like sewing down the bindings on the Chrismas table cloth and some wallhangings (showed in my previous post from the quilt meeting). I hate sewing down bindings, but together with friends chatting and laughing it is done in no time.

But most of all I enjoyed working on blocks for my Antique Sampler quilt.  I am soon ready to sew the blocks together.  But have not started on the outher appliqued border yet.  So still a lot do do on it.


And as my machine project I started to sew these moose’s.  There was a lot of work prepping all the parts for the moose.  Still have to make legs for them, but then they are ready to be sewn together. 


Friday was a rainy day, but still we went out for a long walk.  And discovered traces from bear paws.  This photo is from our walk saturday when the sun was shining.


And we found some other traces from bear paws.  Can you see the bear paw??  It is a bit scary to know that the bear is close to the cabin.  But we did not see it. 

BUT…..during the night to saturday we heard the wolf howling.  An adventure mixed with both joy and  fear.  Not fun to know they are so close to the cabin, but so fun to have heard it.

Good to see you back. Gee, wolves howling and bear prints! Here in Australia we have lots of creepy crawlies and snakes but not BIG predators like that. I love your projects in progress and can't wait to see the moose. They look so cute.

Bear and wolves - oh my, that does sound a bit primitive where your cabin is. I know you all have a great time. I'll be watching to see the moose.
