Quilt Camp-2011 now only a memory

I was here by 7:30 in the morning. I figured by the time I would be on unfamiliar roads, it would be light. I left home at 6AM. This is a new place for us and I LOVE it. A cabin in the woods-outside of Dahlonaga, Ga in the middle of nowhere! Well actually we were not too far from the Kangaroo rescue place-didn't see it-too busy sewing and laughing. 14 gals all together-how fun is that???

Here is Peggy talking about our project. We had to name this bad boy...some of the names can not be published. It was not an easy quilt top to master. Some of the star points are "lost in space". I am having a problem with the border as I made mine larger. I have to rethink how I will finish it off.

Here is our workspace. It was a little small but I loved the natural light and the fact that you can eat when you are hungry and do not have to get dressed unless you feel the need.

The living room/kitchen area. The food was wonderful. Sharon and Shannon are not to be believed. They deserve a long vacation with people waiting on them hand and foot. OMG I ate too much! The bedrooms all on one level made for a fun bed tour of quilts.. Hot tub outside your door!

Here is precious Louise. I love this woman. She is just the funniest person. She came to quilt camp for the first time several years ago, not knowing a soul. She was so quiet. And there is Becky pressing stars.

We laughed so hard all weekend long-that is until today when we had to come back to the real world. BLEAH!!!!!

Went to a new quilt shop up in Dahlonaga. Sure hope I can find this one again. It is worth the trip. It is not the too much fabric, poor lighting, can't see a thing shop there that is not worth the time or gas to travel to.

I was missed by the guys. They ate the food that I had put in the CASSEROLE dish and felt the need to chew through a bagof food. My boys know self service. They are glad I am home and have not left my side.
