Saturday provided us a wonderful break from the summer heat – it’s as if the seasons simply turned a page, leaving us still with sunshine and lovely weather – just a bit kinder, a bit cooler and we grabbed the opportunity to take our box lunches, hike across the parking lot to enjoy our lunch hour near the beautiful bit of water you see in this photo at the park across from the community center where our workshops were being held.
GET OUTSIDE! I don’t care how you do it or when you do it – but quilting, as I often tell people is a sedentary sport. We sit a lot.
INSIDE. We need fresh air. We need the vitamin D that the sun provides naturally.
If you must eat out, get it TO GO and find a grassy spot before rougher weather begins. Tuck this beautiful day into your pocket and reflect back on it in the depths of winter and know that Spring will once again be followed by summer and green and warmth and sunshine.
Within a few weeks we won’t be able to do this at all --
It’s WORTH IT!
Plenty of seating for the whole class of 36!
Consider it RECESS!
It was also a beautiful way to share our quilts with each other. Photos turn out great on a slightly overcast afternoon.
Three Celtic Solstices all in a row!

Just a lovely spot!
Our classes were here, across the way!
The Hands of Friendship guild of Kirksville, Missouri. The Stitch by Stitch Quilters of Marshall, Missouri. The Ozark Piecemakers of Springfield, Missouri. The Circle in the Square Quilters of St Louis, Missouri. You made my time here so very very memorable and I can’t wait until we cross paths again!
And for those who are asking, though I haven’t had the time to get our yearly mystery to the point where I’ll be able to release the yardage requirements by October 15th, I’m doing everything I can to release them by October 31st. You can’t have yardage requirements without a quilt ---not in my book. I’m still working on it.
I have just a few days at home before I turn around and HAVE TO take a group of 50 on a Caribbean Cruise! I know, tough job, right? But what it hasn’t left room for the past few months is SEWING TIME.
I’m shooting for October 31st. That still gives you nearly 4 weeks to pull your fabric together. Thank you for your patience.
And I’m panic rambling, so I’ll stop here, wish everyone a happy Monday, and pack for home…
