Out and about (but not too far away!)

Staying home is over rated, even if the snow keeps on coming down…

On Saturday I went to the Salt Creek Quilters Guild Quilt Show. After a long walk through the park, avoiding the snow covered frozen ponds… I enjoyed catching up with friends and seeing the varied quilts (and vendors).

I found one familiar design on display.

On Monday I ventured a few more miles to La Grange to visit the Centennial Quilters for a wool appliqué class. By the time I remembered to get my camera out there were only these five lovely ladies left…

So now I’m home again for a few days. Here are some more sneak peeks…
