We had a great first couple of days back in Newport. The sun has been out with just a light breeze. The best part - it wasn't too chilly for a walk on the beach.

It is certainly nice to be on the move again even if it is back to a place we have been to several times before. I'm looking forward to our travels to South Dakota. It has been quite awhile since our last visit....five years to be exact. Amazing how time flies. In the meantime, I'm going to enjoy this gorgeous weather.
On The Cutting Board
We have full power....yipee!.... so I have been working my iron extra hard. Lots of fabric to get ready for my new projects. So far, I have cut out about 10 new Happy Camper mug rugss. I'm transferring patterns for embroidery now.
I finished embroidering the last block for the All Creatures Great and Small quilt. I started cutting the fat quarters and I am finding that quite a few of my fat quarters are so crooked that I am having a problem getting the exact amount of required pieces. According to the instructions, each quarter would have given me 8 large pieces with 12 smaller ones with very little left over. I will need to add a ninth fat quarter to make up for the lost pieces.
