30 inches in three years

In 2005, several of us backpacked 50 miles in the Olympic National Park.  I don’t know what I was thinking, but I brought along some hand piecing.  There wasn’t nearly as much time as I had thought there would be to relax.  Today, nearly three years later the last stitch was sewn.  This piece is 30″ square.  It was hand pieced and machine quilted.

Here is a picture of a glacial fed river, the Elwha.  It was absolutely gorgeous there.

Saturday, my son and I leave on Arrowcorp 5, with Boy Scout’s Order of the Arrow.  It is a service project in Shasta-Trinity.  We are packed and, yes, I do have a piecing project to stuff into my backpack as well as handwork to do on the drive down and back.  Later in the summer, we have a short 20 mile pack and then will do the Timberline Loop around Mt. Hood.  Since part of the trail is washed out from a few  years ago, we’ll enter at Tilly Jane in the northeast corner and travel clockwise.  Hopefully, the snow will melt by then.
