There's nothing like getting together for a quilt retreat with friends.
Last weekend we beat the storm and made it to our cabin at the YMCA camp, just as the first flakes started to fall. Not lucky enough to get the cars unloaded before we got good and wet though! LOL!!!
We woke up on Sunday morning to 17" of that infamous
You just have to love these spring snowstorms.
They do create some beautiful photos!
As inconvenient as these storms may be, we really didn't mind. We were hunkered down for 4 whole days with nothing to do but stitch to our hearts content!
None the less, it was exciting to see the sun trying to peek
thru from time to time!
The weather was such, that not much was around in the wildlife department. No moose, bear or elk, but this little chipmunk
sure enjoyed the snow!
Deb was always looking out for us. She did a
great job of keeping our deck and stairs cleared.
Joi, got her "Bloom" quilt finished.
There is a fun sew along over at
"Bee in My Bonnet"
You can read more on that right
Shona finished her two+ year project of restoring this beautiful
"Cathedral Window" quilt for her friend Kina.
What a labor of love.
Deb and I worked on our our Amy Bradley Camper Quilt blocks.
We had way too much fun with these. I'm doing mine on denim and in the QAYG method. Deb is using the standard quilt method.
Since we both are making these as quilts for our campers, we are adding an extra row. Everyone put their heads together and we've come up with some great ideas for holiday campers to add into the mix!
When we were not stitching, we were enjoying incredible meals that everyone brought! This was Joi's, hubby Vic's famous spaghetti meal!
Thanks Vic, it was truly the best!
There is really nothing better than good friends, good food and a few drinky poos, to make for one raucous time. I can't remember when I laughed so much. Oh the power of girls of any age getting together!
And on that note, I have been released to return to work.
"Paroled", as I like to refer to it!
I went and got fingerprinted yesterday...just to make sure I'm not on the America's most wanted list.
You know... they need to make sure I didn't go "too" crazy when I was incapacitated! tee hee
But crazy enough, my vacation starts next week!
Yes, it's another quilt retreat. Yahoo.
I get to see my NY girls in just a few days.
I'm all practiced up for a giggle fest, so you better watch out!
Keep on Stitchin
