Head For The Mountains (Spokane, WA)

Travel Day!  We are leaving Spokane and heading west over the North Cascades Hwy.  I have updated our map to include Concrete, WA.  You can see our travel plans on our 2012 Map page.
We plan to spend one night in Winthrop and four nights in the North Cascades National Park.  We should have WiFi when we get to Concrete.

Until we get there, I plan to close up my Etsy shop and of course, there will be no blog posts.   Recently, I have been needing more downtime from the computer.  It seems to be taking over my life!

And yet, I cannot stop for too long because I have made so many online friends.  I love to read about their latest projects and family outings...sigh, I miss them already!  In the meantime, I hope to get a lot of scenic photos and get some more projects done.

On The Cutting Board
I finished the embroidery on the bunny wall hanging.
You probably will notice the background is a little wavy.  Yep, the batting shrunk when I ironed the fusible webbing to the background.
I used the Wool setting, but apparently that was too hot and the batting shrunk.  When I tried to embroider the ears to the background...well, that just made it worse..  Bummer.  I'm going to do some heavy duty quilting on the background.  Hopefully, the quilting will flatten it out some more.
Whew!  It's a good thing I am making this for myself.  I don't think I would want to give anyone this wall hanging.

  6. I think the bunny wall hanging is great! Sometimes even the 'Ooops' that happen give an item character! Hope you are having a safe and fun-filled journey! :)
