It was a beautiful day in Bedford, PA!
I forget how much further north I am than my home in North Carolina..it was a brisk 55 degrees yesterday morning as we stepped out the door to drive over the American Legion hall where our workshops are being held this weekend.
I drove into town, feeling the cool of nearly-autumn on my skin – reveling in it. Ahhhh! Bliss! I smiled at the low hanging foggy clouds clinging to the sides of the mountains to my right –this place also feels like home as it is nestled into a beautiful landscape.
When I arrived, there were 51 women unloading cars and hauling in machines and class supplies, eager to start the day!
Oh, it’s going to be a busy one!
We were off, cutting and sewing in no time!
Chains of progress!
The laughter of friendship!
A shout out to two sisters too far away to come!
Now here is a VERY odd fact for you to ponder – it has made me laugh all day!
Yesterday was my 34th wedding anniversary. And here I am in Pennsylvania. It’s not an odd occurrence that I would be working on this day – most people who are still of working age find themselves working on birthdays or anniversaries – the world doesn’t stop to mark such occasions, and instead we re-arrange our calendars and choose a different day to celebrate to make up for it. That’s how life is. The Hubster had to work yesterday as well, his job doesn’t change because of birthdays or anniversaries --
There were FOUR of us in class yesterday celebrating our wedding anniversaries in the company of a room of quilters –can you tell where our priorities lie?? Hahaha! We were in good company!
They helped me celebrate!
Thank you for the fabulous day, ladies!
Fabulous blocks from wonderful folks!
The pattern for Smith Mountain Morning is from my book Scraps & Shirttails II. Signed copies can be found in Quiltville's Store.
