I am taking a break from posting workshop photos after workshop photos –dealing with slow internet (a small inconvenience while being on retreat!) and the fact that I have an early departure this morning means we are going to shift you from our regular programming and throw in a bit of fun that I had with Sherry and Irene from the time we left Grapevine, all the way until we reached Mineola, Stitchin’ Heaven and beyond!
Irene met Sherry when she moved from San Antonio to Louisville, and I met Sherry when I went to visit Irene, and we all got along as if we’ve known each other forever.
We sing in the car to the oldies.
We laugh and laugh like teenagers.
We are a great team!
And we all love to look out for quilts, machines, sewing notions, antique linens and depression glass.
With this in mind, we made a beeline for Fort Worth.
With Sherry crammed in the back of the car!
Can you breathe back there, Sherry?
Let us know you are still alive!
Hey, it’s Fort Worth!
Who put that speed limit sign in the middle of my photo?
The bushes and trees aren’t much better!
(It’s a Texas sized photo fail!)
For those who are not aware of Texas geography, Fort Worth is WEST of Grapevine, and Mineola is about 100 miles EAST of Fort Worth, but we had all day to get there, so why not?
Oh boy! This is going to take a while!
And it did! Check it out:
We also had after hours when our class time was done in Mineola. This included a run for a pedicure, and dinner out at Love & War in Texas in nearby Lindale!
I dare you to eat ALL of that smoked prime rib, Irene!
Well, all I want is a half chicken, and a rack of ribs on a platter bigger than my head!
Salad? Are you kidding me? SALAD?!?
At Miranda Lambert’s Pink Pistol in Lindale, TX!
Until we meet again, girls – it was a great few days!
Now lest you think that I forgot about our Quilty Box drawing last night – we were just delayed a bit as retreat was winding down for me, and we were busy sewing into the wee hours and with the limited connection frustration I decided to draw our winner this morning.
Let’s draw that winner!
We are looking for entry # 1438 out of 4016!

I love knowing that part of the proceeds go to benefit kids. To me that is a win/win all the way around!
