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!
I will be heading out a bit before they do – I have that dermatologist appointment that NEEDS to happen.  I missed last year due to Covid.  I have some spots that look and feel suspect to me.  So I may be coming home with some frozen spots – 
But I digress!

This has been SUCH a wonderful visit!  
And that rain? It really only happened during the night if at all.
NO BIGGIE!

Design wall full of swap blocks!

And projects in progress!
I just love Leslies blocks – so fun!

So much productivity going on here – 
Dueling Featherweights!
I think our grand total was only 3 Featherweights this time around.

This was just a stack of fabric when retreat began!
Now it is a completed runner – just add binding!

This was something else I watched grow over the weekend –
Everyone was swapping paper pieced flower blocks!

I have do info on the designer or the pattern. But I love these!

Aren’t they fun?
Mix and match the flower tops to the different stems and pots.

We really couldn’t ask for more!
Except for maybe more time.
And as I am also headed out for appointments (wish me luck!) I’ll save the over-the-porch-rain quilt photos for tomorrow’s post so stay tuned!

It was 57 brisk degrees when I arrived at the inn this morning to start on the laundry.  57! And foggy – you know what they say? The number of foggy mornings also adds up to the number of snowy days we’ll have come winter.

I’m not ready to start counting those yet!  But that fog may make things a bit difficult seeing my way down the mountain pass. I’m giving myself a bit of extra time and caution.

How does your Tuesday look to be shaping up?

Quiltville Quote of the Day –
Life is a lot like the safety demonstration on an airplane.
You have to adjust your own oxygen mask before you can help others.
Start with you!

Have a wonderful Tuesday, everyone!
