Three Days of Fun!!!!!
I'm back home from three days with the girls. I had an awesome time and lots of fun.
We started out on Friday morning and headed to Gore, OK for the Fin & Feather Resort 26th annual craft show. We stopped in town and ate at Garden Gate Tea Room. Homemade chicken salad and tomato basil soup was the special and it was delicious. After lunch we headed to the craft show. We spent the afternoon walking around looking at lots of crafts. The weather was beautiful...sunshine, cool breeze and 75 degree temperature.
Found some things I just had to have, mostly Halloween decorations.
Enjoyed a cold glass of lemonade and then headed down the road to our final destination for the weekend...Western Hills Guest Ranch for "Quilters PowWow". Arrived in time for dinner. Unloaded our car and then went to the evening program. Cynthia Regone from Houston TX was the speaker and she had some beautiful quilts.
I didn't have a class until Saturday afternoon, so I spent the morning stitching on a project I had brought with me. My Saturday afternoon class was called "Jake's Quilt". An easy "I spy" quilt. And yes, it is very easy. I have done an "I spy" with the hexagons template and it was NOT an easy quilt. This one is super easy and really fun to do. Here is a picture of the teacher's quilt.I got one row completed and the rest of the pieces cut out. I will work on it this winter when the weather is cold. My friend, Shirley and I went for an afternoon walk and came upon some deer grazing. They let us get pretty close to them before they ran away.The rest of the weekend was spent sewing and enjoying time with friends. Sunday morning we took our yearly picture.This is most of the PM Quilters group in Central Oklahoma Quilters Guild. We had lunch and then all headed home.
It was a great weekend and fun was had by all!!!
Hope everyone has a great week. Enjoy the nice autumn days. The weather has been absolutely wonderful here. They are talking even cooler weather and rain later in the week, but still need some rain.
