Hard to believe our time is almost over for this year. It seems like we just got here. But Day #3 was not the same as the last two days.
It began with a great breakfast and some visiting.
And a little bit of ironing. I’m thinking of getting one of these little irons, better than half the quilters had one.
And Nancy did a little sewing before our morning event.
The morning was spent on Show and Tell. We all got a chance to share either completed projects or projects in progress. It is so much fun to see what others are doing with their skills. Camelia shared a top she’s working on. (Thanks Jim for helping to hold it.)
After a delicious lunch, there was shopping at the Schoolhouse Fabrics and other stores in Floyd, VA, followed by dinner at the Pine Tree Tavern. Some ladies returned to get more stitching done while others attended the Floyd Jamboree to hear the White Top Mountain Band.
I usually stay at the Retreat to host any of the ladies that want to stay stitching. Lynne and I ran into Floyd for a quick shopping trip. I picked up backing fabric for the Raffle quilt the ladies of the 2017 Retreat created and I just finished assembling. This will be raffled off to support the ministry at Spirit Wind Retreat Center where we have our retreat. I also picked up some fabric to back the quilt to I made on Thursday, plus a few more yards of pretty fabric. We then stopped by the Bread Basket on our way back. I did a little bit of sewing, but more ironing, planning and organizing.
Tomorrow’s post will be about the conclusion of Camelia’s 2018 Quilt Camp.
Happy Stitching & Moving!
