A perfect day for sewing up the strings, Virginia Bound style!
A Sunday afternoon workshop going from 1pm to 7pm after a relaxing morning at the hotel puttering with a borrowed featherweight machine.
Just a great day for playing and laughing and making some beautiful blocks!
I also had my first run in with a sand crane….those guys are HUGE!! As he walked past the window, head bobbing, beady eye watching what was going on inside the building.
I ran outside to see if I could get a photo, of course forgot the camera inside, so--
You’ll just have to believe me. They are BIG and gawky and so fun to watch!
We started with stuff like this!
We sewed onto our foundations like this!
And before we knew it we were turning out blocks like this:
So pretty, Cindy!
Look at them all, just slaving away!
Yeah, I like to work them hard! Ha!
Thanks for the fun day, Ladies!
Oh yes! And there was THIS:
Flavor of the day? Key Lime Pie! How Floridian!

Dinner was a fun affair –but even after getting there after 7pm on a Saturday night, it took quite a while for us to be sat, waited upon and fed. But still, what a fun evening for all 13 of us. Toward the end we were worried that we’d make it back in time for the season finale of Downton Abbey.
I made it with 5 minutes to spare, but that also explains why there was no evening blog update last night.
No spoilers here! but there were some good surprises and I’m glad we made it!
Still…why are British tv series SO SHORT!? And do we really have to wait until January to find out what happens??
This is nuts! Wait all year, and now it’s until next year.
This morning we’ve got a whole nuther batch of quilters gathering for a Talkin’ Turkey workshop from 10am to 4:30pm.
Time to get my shower and get this day put together – here we go again!
