Oh, I had the best time recently at two quilting retreats, back to back. Yes, ten days in a row of quilty fun. First up was a trip to Blairsville, Georgia where we took in a lovely quilt show.
I love this purple and white Hawaiian style quilt. One of these days I'm going to be brave enough to tackle something like that, maybe a bit smaller though!
And, lucky me, it was placed right beside my bed.
And, we got lucky in that the quilt show was being held at the same time as the foliage was putting on a real show. Here's the view from the porch outside my bedroom.
And we just had to spend some time downstairs on the swing where we had this view.
As we were doing our running around, we saw a flock of gorgeous turkeys.
And there was a herd of deer. You can see only a few here, but I think we counted about fifteen of them.
Every turn in the road provided a breathtaking view.
On one of our days, we decided that a picnic was in order and we found a lovely park for just that purpose.
Now, I was on that trip with quilty friends and we did, indeed get some sewing done. After we'd come home for the day, somebody would handle cooking supper and we'd commence sewing, which continued until the wee hours of the morning.
There might have been a little laughter mixed in there somewhere, too. Oh, what a good time we had.
After parting ways with those girls, I headed on over near Birmingham to meet up with my other quilting retreat buddies. I must admit that I don't have a single picture from there, but we most certainly did have a good time. As I've said before, some of the girls come from all over for our retreat. So, I spent another five days there, sewing and talking and laughing. I was truly and well tuckered out when I finally got home.
Y'all take care.
