    Has anyone walked the Camino de Santiago in northern Spain? I'm considering walking the Camino Frances from St Jean Pied de Port in France over the Pyrenees to Santiago, Spain next year.

    It sounds a long way. We drove part of one route one year and that was exhausting in the car.

    It should take me about 30-35 days to complete. My husband think I'm nuts and isn't keen on my doing this. I'll do more research, but I'm really drawn to it.
    wow, 30-35 days... what a journey. your husband isn't interested in joining you? (or is not able to?)

    Pville, if my kids were older, I'd do it with you (also have a husband that can't (wont) do active things).

    Walking a portion has always been on my bucket list as well. I will be very interested to follow your progress. Do you have a time frame?

    Dr. Tammy mentioned us talking about quilting. I want to show you what I have been up to lately. This was a mystery quilt. A mystery quilt is a quilt where you don't know what the final quilt looks like. You get clues and make the blocks. This one was a fund raiser for a group called Project Linus. It is called Gracie's Get Well Garden. Name:  IMG_0313.jpg

    This will be donated to a local charity in memory of my mom. I had signed up for the challenge but the day before the first clue came out my mom passed away. It truly has been healing for my sister and myself so the name of the quilt is very appropriate.

    Wow Cossie, what a lovely thing to do and in memory of your mom. You're very clever and thoughtful.

    When my daughter was a baby she spent some time in hospital, a lady came in and gave her a beautiful crocheted blanket for her cot, I really appreciated that.
