Saturday morning I'll be packing up my little red Beetle and heading five hours north. It's Wildcat time again.
It's been two years since my friends and I shared a week at Wildcat Lodge near Boulder Junction, Wisconsin. We'll be staying in a house on a mirror-like lake on the property of a rustic fishing resort. The surrounding deep balsam forest has a scent that can't be described and I intend to breathe in a lot of it in the next week.
Projects going along with me:
1. In nearly 25 years of quiltmaking, I have never made a basic Log Cabin quilt, and it's high time to remedy that. I have a huge box of 1.5 inch scrap strips (a real stroll down my personal quilting memory lane), a baggie full of red center squares, and I am STOKED.
2. A new Top Secret project, which is going to necessitate a stop here en route to stock up on solid color fabrics, of which I have nearly none. A type of fabric I have none of? Hard to believe...
3. Emergency back-up quilt project.
4. New lace shawl project.
5. Sock knitting.
We all also plan to enter a quilt show, take in an evening of theater, drink a bit of wine, enjoy some tasty meals, and do quite a fair amount of being lazy.
So, I'm signing off till September 21. Everyone behave while I'm gone!
