Goooood weekend!



I have had a terrific weekend. Saturday I had lunch with some lady camper friends. We all met through an internet group for our type of camper. There are three of us that live within a close distance, and we have all visited each other at campsites and grabbed lunch together now and then. A fourth woman from Florida had ordered a camper from a dealer local to us (in N Georgia). She has been talking about when her 'baby' would be delivered. We all met for lunch on Saturday to celebrate the arrival of her baby. In the middle of the resturant, at noon on a Saturday, we held a baby shower. We did get some odd looks. At our ages we are all a little old to be having a baby. And then she opened the packages- things like wheel chocks, step stools, bungee cords, fix-a-flat, and a porta potty - all wrapped in baby wrappings. What a hoot!

Today I finally worked on Leaf Season again, and it is now in the flimsy stage. AND ...Gratitude is up to date. I'm flying high- yippee. I'm up to date until Judy gives us the next installment. I'm guessing it will be to start putting the 25 patch together, and I haven't cut the little squares yet, so I'll be behind again pretty soon. For tonight, I'm a happy quilter.

Looks good! I especially like the leaves that are made of different colors within a block - I was too chicken to do that, but it worked nicely!
