Have You Missed Me? I've Missed You!

My little mini-vacation to join some good friends on the HGTV Message Board for a mini-retreat in Alabama...was such a good time. But, I did miss my daily posts with you! I tried to talk to you on Thursday, but the wireless connection was so slow...I could not get a single photo to upload.
Now, I'm back home...and tired...and can't wait until I can see my dear friends again!
Part of the time we worked hard!

Part of the time we partied hard!
There was a lot of stitches put into my Merry Merry Snowman quilt (yep, this is me!), and I only have one more block to go and it will be all appliqued! I'll share some photos of the finished blocks when I get a moment to put the button eyes on and embroider the arms of the snow-people.
We shopped at the Ashland Quilt House and the Heart to Heart Quilt Shop...and look at part of the stash I purchased. Can you tell that I like this fabric? I had no idea that I had purchased the same package of 5" squares at each shop!! Do you ever do that?
 While at the quilt shop in Asland, a man/woman delivered a beautiful rocking horse to the owner. Her mother was so pleased that she had to take a little ride herself...she is 97 years old!
I had to have a photo...hope I have half the energy she has when I'm 79...much less at 97!!!

Time to start unpacking all of my dirty clothes, fabric, projects, and such!
See y'all again soon.

Looks like you had a marvelous time! And how come you didn't take a turn on the rocking horse??

Yes it's good to see you back again, I missed you.
How funny that you bought the same fabric pack in both stores, lol. It must really have spoken to you.
