Fun at Camp - Big Wins!

What a blast we had again at camp this year! There is so much to share with you I don't know where to start. So I decided I would share the theme and a few "wins" I got at camp! The theme this year was "Sail the Blue with Old Tippecanoe!" (Old Tippecanoe quilt guild). I found these awesome wall decorations at my local party store - so I had to deck out our walls!

And I found this wonderful hat for our friend Linda - as you can see she really enjoyed it!

And I was SO LUCKY and won the big door prize of the weekend - a sewing lamp! My other friend Linda's husband (different Linda than fish head Linda) collects old threads and sewing notions during the year at auctions and makes 2 lamps each year for camp. And I got the thread one!!!! I"ve been waiting to win for years! I was so excited.

I also scored one awesome vintage sewing box! Linda's husband has been scouting one of these out for me for a few years at auctions. And he finally found one, in almost perfect condition! Isn't it wonderful! As you can see Chloe is helping to check it out! I need to clean it out and apply a little murphy's oil soap and it will be as good as new.
