Saturday evening

Well, what a great visit we had today! We hit the stores first and we all did well.

That's Shellie on the right, Kathy in the middle and I am on the left.

3 shops later and I only spent $18! Can you say WILLPOWER!! Wasn't easy! lol By this time it was lunch time so we grabbed a bite to eat and headed back to my house for some sewing. I think we got back around 1, which wasn't going to leave us much time for sewing as we needed to wrap up around 4 as I had dinner plans.

Now, you have to understand...I don't think there was one minute of quiet the whole time so far! Shellie and I have gotten together, but we haven't connected with Kathy since our retreat last Thursday. So, lots and lots of gabbing was being done!

Finally settling down to sew, we worked away. Here are the girls working:

We did manage to each get a few of our blocks done before we had to call it quits.

The ones on top are mine..and so far I am liking the melon background. I know it is not a great shot, but what do you think?

Dinner plans panned out but hub went and got us dinner and Patrick, hub and I ate our dinner on a quilt covered table outside in the shade and just enjoyed the evening. One movie later and here we are. So, soon Patrick will be off to bed and I assume hub, also. Then I am hoping to do some more sewing!! Now, off to check out how everyone else in the quiltalong did!!


  1. I had an awesome time! We need to do it again and again and again....soon. love ya

  2. Looks like you had a great time, I am so envious you live close enough to get together. CathyG

  3. Woohoo, I think I'm going to be able to leave a comment at last.

    It looks like you had a great time with your friends, and even got some blocks made.

  4. I just made some of these blocks for a QOV quilt. well, I just sent the blocks off. Resized them. The melon background looks GREAT. Nice job. Love the description of your time with your sewing buddies. I miss my buddy who lives 3 hours away. Sigh.
