Sew, Hike, EAT!

Can you hear the laughter and feel the friendship that is happening here?

What started last July post-lock-down when we only had 6 ladies able to attend for Chris's first Christmas in July retreat has now expanded to full capacity at 12.

Those who weren't able to come pre-vaccine last year are able to be here and partake in all of the crazy fun that happens on retreat!

One of the best things?  THE FOOD of course!

Winter Blues in July!

With Chris's Christmas in July group fully moved in to Quiltville Inn - we started in on our Winter Blues workshop day one.

Can I just say how rewarding it is to teach a group of 12 over the course of several days as compared to cramming it all into 6 hours divided amongst 50 students?

Belated June 2021 Quilty Box Gift-Away!

Evidently a funny thing happened to my June '21 Quilty Box , and I was so busy I didn't even know it went missing!

When it finally dawned on me that it hadn't arrived - I contacted the folks at Quilty Box and our digging found out that my package had arrived at some post office in Nashville as "undeliverable/damaged"  OH NO!

But never fear - here at nearly the tail end of July comes the June box, and I am sure the July box is not far behind!

Airing of the Quilts - Pieceful Hearts Style!

SO many blocks were made.

SO much progress on so many projects -

And here is a handful of over-the-rail eye candy to share from the Pieceful Hearts gals of Augusta, GA and North Augusta, SC!

We were making the best use of the threatening cloud cover as it is so helpful in getting good photos without shadow or glare.

Sew Pieceful Hearts, Sew!

How do you say "We had a great time!" without words? THIS PHOTO!

As I type up this post this morning from the QPO, the Pieceful Hearts gals are rounding up their stuff, packing the cars and getting ready for a 10 am departure as they have a 6 hour drive ahead of them.

And that leaves time for lunch somewhere, and a quilt shop stop or two along their way!

Beating the Rain -

It was a "Hurry up before it rains!" kind of Sunday.

Not that we couldn't get dry if we got wet - but there is the slippery mud to contend with, and as we are all past the half-century-plus-ten mark (or close to it) mud and inclines, rocks and declines come into play when they are wet.

We were four plus one - Zoey! And I'm so glad we did this hike - I couldn't fathom we would see what we did!
