The last time I visited with the Chatahoochie Evening Stars was about 5 years ago – I had just relocated to North Carolina, and I had so much fun with these ladies that when I was asked to come back I whole heartedly said yes!
Boy has a lot happened in the past 5 years! Still – it is fun to see familiar faces, and catch up with everyone, and meet some newbies that weren’t here last time.
As I mentioned, Brenda is visiting from Oregon --- today was her wedding anniversary and I received an email from her hubby months ago saying he wanted to surprise her with a trip and a weekend full of classes. What a first rate guy!! Isn’t that the coolest thing?
Barb drove all the way from Mississippi --- she found out about it from another class member, Renee who is a guild member, and the two of them had become internet friends, and this was the first time they got to meet in person!
Debbie was also a traveling visitor ---I can’t remember off the top of my head where she is from, but she traveled from a few hours away to come join us as well.
Anna and Emelia ((Shown smiling above!)) traveled from about 3 + hours away, being from the Oak Ridge, TN area.
If we build it, they will ccome!
The fun thing is ---- now everyone who was a stranger is friends with everyone else --- and the circle increases!
Here is how we spent our day:
And to think ---we have another day of crazy sewing in front of us! Whooot!
