Fun Time In Florence!





I wish I could say it was Florence Italy....but it was a very chilly Florence SC as my destination today! It was 19 degrees when I got up, and the car thermometer read 23 degrees on my drive to Florence! Brrrrrr!

The Florence Swamp Fox quilters are a very fun group! They are a day guild, and it was a full house! Lots of great show and tell, a terrific batch of ladies!

Afterwards, we all went to lunch at a mexican restaurant....and the fun and laughter continued! Quilters just are the best people around. We've got threads that tie us together and I just love it!

I came home energized, inspired...and promptly took a nap..*LOL* Okay..so I didn't get to sleep on time last night because I was worried I'd forget something and I get so nervous talking in front of big groups, and afraid my alarm wouldn't wake me up and I needed to leave the house at 7:30 am to get there in time..you know how it goes?

The only thing I forgot was my camera, so hopefully someone from that group will send me their pics :c) In the mean time, I googled for florence, sc pics just to have something to keep your attention here and read this far ;c)

It's a good thing I didn't take the mystery quilt with me!! There was someone there following along with it... But I can tell that yes, it is DONE...the binding is on...and the sleeve is sewn down...and I hate not being able to show it for a few more weeks until the mystery is revealed! Bleak House was perfect to stitch by! Tomorrow I will go back to the library and pick out some new choices for the coming weekend :c)
