Quilt Camp-the good, the bad and the ugly

First off: there was no ugly. But there was lots of bad!!!! It was Splendor in the grass as you can see. Moda Man took the gang camping. I thought that Bobbin and Thimble were staying home. I guess they decided that they did not want to miss anything. I believe that Moda Man and Fat Quarter had a rather good time. I am not going to tell you what Brenda now has renamed Fat Quarter. So that was the bad of the weekend.

Here is the dynamic duo-Sharon and Shannon. 2 very special ladies that work their tails off to make a wonderful experience for those of us not fooling around in the grass. This year's quilt is really neat. Picture to follow later on-it is not done but it went home with Peggy for a couple of weeks. It will be at Patchwork Cottage. Luv, luv luv the fabric (Moda of course) Thanks to Peggy and Sarah no blog for helping me pick it out.

Sharon and Shannon always give out prizes and lots of goodies throughout the weekend. It is a wonder I could get my car loaded because I came home with more stuff than what I went out with. The wrap up this morning was yet more prizes. There were 5 really good prizes. I could not believe my luck when Sharon called my number. I WON!!!!!! I never win but I WON!!!!!!
You ask: what did I win?
FREE RETREAT IN 2011!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am one happy camper because this is such a special time. I have been 8 years. Cindi, Louise and I are the only ones that have been there since the inaugural Goin' Sewin'. The place is beautiful, the quilters are awesome and we even got French Toast Yes!!!!
