Trip news

We are having a great time traveling with our camper!  These pictures show a few of the sites we've seen.  On our way to California to visit DH's cousins, we passed through Nevada.


We traveled a little on the famous Route 66!

My DH's aunt handed this 1930's signature (fund raiser) quilt to her granddaughter.  The amount of funds raised depended on the number of pieces in each block, so some of the quilt block makers put lots of pieces in their blocks.


On the way north from southern CA, we stated at this campground in Independence, CA.  It was really nice and had a great view of the mountains as you can see below.



The stream through the campsite was beautiful too.


I haven't had internet access in order to view my favorite blogs, so I am way behind.  We are in Oregon now and will reach our son's home by Friday.

I have lots more pictures to share when I can.

Looks like you are having loads of fun! That camper rig is incredible! Looking forward to more pictures.
I'm glad you left me a comment. I was beginning to think something was wrong with you and/or my blog. Everyone must be really having fun this weekend; not many online! ---"Love"

With such beautiful scenery, who needs the internet? All you travelling quilt bloggers are making me so jealous that I'm stuck at home, but at least you're sharing so I can enjoy the scenery from my comfy couch!

The quilt is incredible! When looking at the fabrics, I wasn't sure if it was old or new and had to look more at the setting fabrics to see their condition and figure out it's older. Do you know how old? It's a treasure for sure!
