Goin' Sewin' #7

'FaFaLand' is about an hour an fifteen minutes from my home. It is located south of Covington, Ga in rural farmland-many cows, goats, horses, etc. This morning when I was leaving I saw a bunch of wild turkey(at least that is what I think they were)!
I arrived on thrs morning and set up my station-pretty much s zip code!-all the necessities needed for heavy duty sewing.
Sharon and Shannon are the leaders of this happy band of quilters. They plan all year for this weekend. And I look forward to this weekend all year. They do an excellent job of mixing instruction, games and giveaways. Cindi, Louise and I have been to all 7 of these great weekends. This year there were 16 quilters present-gals we see but once a year. Several "Thimbles" were there this weekend as well.

Field trips to local quilt shops-Sweet Home, Patrick's in Covington and the shop in Jackson. I needed some stuff at Sweet Home and Patrick's. Bought a quilt top kit there for one of the little girls-not sure which one will get it yet.
Saturday night we had an auction to "Send a kid to camp". I think the auction brought in over $700-not bad for 18 people!

Not too much sleep-sewing until the wee hours of the morning and then trying to fall asleep with achy bodies. Lots of tylenol! Quilts seen on the bed tour were spectacular-lots of last year's project returned all quilted!

Accomplished:
-juvenile quilt top-dragons and unicorns
-Sassy 16 quilt top
-progress on the Flying geese quilt
-progress on the kit bought at Sweet Home
-burp cloths for Snugglebutt

I really need a nap now!
