A wonderful day!

A wonderful day!

Post by Alice » Tue, 17 May 2005 19:36:10



I used to quilt with a great group of folks every other Wednesday.  I met
these ladies when I took a course at my LQS one Saturday.  It was a small
group, 5-6 at any given time, but we got lots of quilts done.  The person
who hosted the group (most of the time due to small kids and the abundance
of room she had for sewing machines and cutting space) unfortunately moved
south of me about 1.5 hours worth due to her hubby's change in teaching
jobs.  She now lives in Greenwich in the most wonderful house I've ever
seen - built in 1724 and owned by a pirate originally if you can believe
that!  What a sweet town.  Anyway, she hosted a full day of quilting at her
house yesterday.  It was glorious!  Ever since my DD moved back home and my
sweet grandbaby was born, I really have not had the time to dedicate to my
quilting as I had in the past.  I've started getting back into the swing of
things with the RCTQ BOM, but I actually sewed for 4 hours straight
yesterday (except for a break for homemade pea soup and corn bread).  It was
so nice.  It was great to see her again.  It was like a drive into another
time zone!  What a wonderful town - even if they don't have cable modems or
cell phone service!

So, I now need to keep up this momentum.  I dove into organizing my sewing
room (yet again) last night and should have it fully operational by this
weekend (leave today for a 3 day business trip) so I can perhaps actually
finish some UFOs first and then dive into the quilts for my soon-to-be-born
new grandbaby!  YIPPEE, WHOOHOO AND WHOOP-DEE-DOO!

Did you see the Tea Burning monument?I agree what a nice little town.It
seems like it's a whole different country down here.Folks are a lot
different than they are in the Lumberton area.But then,we are south of the
Mason-Dixon line....

Sounds WONDERFUL!!

I dug thru my stash looking for the right fabrics for a baby quilt.  Put my
selections on the table.  Looked at them this morning and decided to start
over when I get home from the dr today.
