All's Quiet Now...

But there was a whole lot of noise going on over the weekend at The Stone House!

I had the pleasure of hosting a group of quilting friends for several days for sewing, shopping, yakking and laughing.  We had visitors from Maine, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Kentucky here.  I know I had a lot of fun and I'm pretty sure everyone else had a good time as well.

Saturday evening after supper we handed The Engineer about 6 cameras and had him stand in the yard and try to get us to be quiet for 2 seconds per shot... not an easy assignment... but he's pretty patient (has to be as he lives with me).

A lot of sewing was done... several projects were finished and new ones started... and the economy in this area has been well supported.  LOL

We were very fortunate to have the use of the classroom space at the Piece by Piece Quilt shop over the weekend... lots of elbow space available.  It was fun to watch the progress of the quilts on the design wall as the blocks were assembled, joined and the quilts completed and removed... only to have a new project take it's place.

I am so fortunate to have a wonderful group of friends and I look forward to future gatherings.

Thanks, sweetie! I had such a great time that I can't even find words to say it. It was a much needed break, with good friends for the icing on that cake!

Have a safe trip!
