Ok, so for the rest of our time at camp.
Class was from 8:30am to 3:30pm each day. After the evening program most of us would go back to the classroom and work on various things until 11:30pm or so. Frank was always there, too. Ginger and I would then go to our room and stay up until 1:30am and work on things. One night we stayed up until 2:30am. We just couldn't go right to sleep after all the creativity and fun we would have with the other ladies and Frank.
Tuesday: Before class, Ginger and I walked to the coffee house to place an order for the Morning Glory muffins she had to take back to Oklahoma. On the way we spotted at house that said "PIE". We decided we would come back after class was over to check it out.
We went inside and the smell of pies was wonderful. There were three rooms with tables to sit at and eat your pie. We looked at the quilts, signs, samplers and other treasures to purchase before having pie. Now for the decision of what kind of pie....I got a slice of coconut cream pie to eat there AND a slice of cherry pie to go for later. Ginger had a slice of coconut cream AND a slice of pecan pie to go. We decided that would be our breakfast the next day. After pie, we went walking around downtown some more and found a few more treasures we couldn't live without.
Tuesday night, one of the teachers, Karen Kahle, did a trunk show of her rugs. Here are some pictures of the rugs. They were simply beautiful in person, but hope you can see them and imagine how wonderful they were. I love the colors she uses in her rugs. It makes the rugs look very old and antique.
Wednesday: Most of the day was spent working on our class projects. Ginger and I finished our tote boxes, sewing book, jar lid and flower pin.
Ginger drew out some pumpkins, snowman, dog, sheep and punched them to make pins and more sewing books. You know, she is very fast and had several things finished by the end of camp.
Frank did a trunk show on Wednesday night, but I don't have pictures. I was helping take orders for some of his patterns. He is a great speaker and had everyone in stitches from his jokes. He showcased each student's projects and had something to tell about each one. One of the ladies in class decided we all should wear wax lips to the show. Some of us had red lips and some of us had vampire teeth.

Thursday: Our last day of camp. Some ladies worked on finishing their tote boxes while others punched more covers for sewing books, pins and such. Here is what Ginger did:

This was one of the most fulfilling and rewarding classes I have ever taken. Frank is such a giving person and he was always telling us ways to do things. I came away from his class with so many new ideas and ways of doing things.
On our way home, Thursday afternoon, he even called to check to see how we were doing. This morning (Friday) he called about 10:30am to make sure we made it home OK. Said he had several students that left on Thursday and were driving at night and wanted to be sure they got home. I just can't say enough of how much fun I had this week. It is a class I will not soon forget.
Well, tomorrow I will post pictures of rugs from the rug show. There were some beautiful rugs brought by the students from all the classes. So until tomorrow, have a good evening.
