Yesterday I went with a very fun quilting friend of mine to the retreat about an hour from here where many of my other fun quilting friends were spending four days of non-stop sewing, talking, laughing, eating, and even shop hopping! Lori had asked me some time ago if I would like to go with her as a daytripper to which I immediately replied "yes!" She works so is unable to attend for the entire time and it's no longer feasible for me to go for that long It was not a disappointment!! A lot of the girls there I have known since I first got into the guild along with others who have joined our group after I did - they are such a lovely group of women and I hope they know how much they contribute to my life. I am so much older than all of them but still feel so comfy when I am with them and I think they are part of making me feel not so old! It was a good day!
I didn't get a picture of it, but Lori, who I came with, brought along a quilt she had pieced a long time ago which she was embellishing with ribbon embroidery! Gorgeous! Her work is beautiful. We have so much talent in our guild! Lots and lots of great quilters whose work is wonderful.
Me, I brought along a scarf I was crocheting. Did much more talking and laughing than I did crocheting but that is just fine with this old hag! It was fun.
A Thought for Today!!
