The Hoo-Rah

We went camping this Memorial Day weekend.  We went to the Hoo-Rah which is a family campout that has been happening for 34 years now. 
We took the Basil (our Chihuahua) this time.  He was pooped out by the time we got home. Pictured below is my daughter and I with Basil.
We got to do some canoeing. I love being on the river!!  Give me the river over the beach any day.
A family photo under the Hoo-Rah sign which is also 34 years old. :o)
And I did some stitching on the trip too.  My son drew this picture for his teacher. I'm stitching it up to give her as an end of the year gift.  I will be sure to post pictures when I am finished.  It may turn into a pillow.
I started a new quilt today (Monday).  These are not my colors and I am finding them hard to work with, but my cousin is getting married the end of June and they are her colors.  It will be a signature quilt for the wedding.  I got the pattern from Jaybird Quilt's blog, a free tutorial.  More of this project to come later also.

Happy stitching.... I'll be camping again in 4 days!!
