iPhone-o-gram! WV retreat, Day 2!!

It's Pineapple Crazy today!

We've got pandora playing on the panda speaker on the 60s channel--dare you not to sing along with "Locomotion" :-)

Before long the packing up will begin.

New friendships made and the old friendships strengthened,
ladies will depart and head their separate ways all gung ho to meet up again next year.

As for me I'll be back again to teach in 2016!

Several promises have been made to have their Smith Mountain morning quilts and pineapple crazyquilt done by the time we are together again. :-)

I got a 3 Hour drive home – unless I happen to find myself waylaid by antique malls!

Don't you love Katie's table runner?? So fun meeting her finally, she is adorable and so fun!


  1. Love the table runner! and that tiny pineapple piecing! Woowoo!

  2. I love my little panda..the best speaker i've ever had. Thanks for directing me to him. Now, seriously, i have got to put new music on my ipod.its amazing that i could get tired of 800 songs . Too much time at the sewing machine maybe?

  3. AHHHHHH I can't believe I met Bonnie Hunter in REAL LIFE! You are so SOOOOO awesome. . just no other word to describe you but awesome!
    Although, doing your mysteries and reading your blog.. for so many years, I felt like I already knew ya!
    I hope you made it home, or WILL make it home safely and get some rest. Thanks for a WONDERFUL weekend. My first-ever sewing class was a success and I learned so much. I'll DEFINITELY be doing it again. I had a blast!
