Went Camping

We went camping this past weekend. The weather was beautiful most of the day. It turned cold as soon as the sun started going down. In the mornings it was cold, so we lit the campfire to take the chill off.

The campground we go to has no TV, cell phone service, WI-fi and, of course, no internet. Oh my gosh, whats a person to do? I generally sit, enjoy the quiet and the wild life while I read or do needle work. I didn't do any reading this trip, I worked on the lap robe below.

The pattern is by Kim Guzzman, the colors are mine. When I first saw the pattern it was done in black, ocean (blue green) and forest floor (green). It was absolutely gorgeous. But, alas, I had so much yarn at home that I couldn't justify buying seven more skeins of yarn. She called her's Eco Throw, I call mine Stained Glass.
I have been working on this for about three years now. It lives in the camp trailer as it is my needle craft project while camping. Needless to say, I haven't worked on it very much. I have now brought it into the house and it will go where I go until I get it completed. When I started it, I didn't have a need or plan for the finished product so I don't know what I'm going to do with it. I will post a picture of it when finished.
Thanks for stopping by. Take Care
