See that beautiful Gulf water..............It's a monster! The Gulf of Mexico swallowed my wedding ring the first day............. I was so sad.....I have had it for 23 years. I knew my ring was loose and I've already lost it down two sink drains this year but, I should have known better than wear it too the beach.
It's gone......... Forever.

Even though this was a good vacation, it was bittersweet.
Back to sewing news!
I took a little break from my usual sewing and decided to switch gears and sew something a little different. I'm making my nephew a quilt and cloth book for Christmas. You know it's only 5 months away!
I saw the Peanuts & gang quilt panel in a Nancy's Notions catalog, the price was a little steep for me so after some research online I found the same one at www.fabric.com for 1/2 the price. I just love the camping theme of the panel. The quilt size ended up being 36"x56".

I'm trying to decide what to use for the backing fabric. A solid or a print?
I've made yards and yards of binding and I finally went to the store for some batting. (I hate going to town).
