I just got back from a trip to the mountains with a group of quilting friends. We left the Raleigh area early on Friday morning and went to Gastonia to visit Mary Jo's. We all bought A LOT of fabric and then headed toward Boone for a mystery quilt weekend. For those of you that are not up on your NC geography Gastonia is not on the way to Boone from Raleigh. We quilters will use any reason for a visit to Mary Jo's. :)
We got to the house Friday evening, unloaded the cars, set up our machines and started sewing. We were doing a mystery quilt that has been handed out by a local quilt show, Wish Upon a Quilt. We actually did pretty well we all were on Step 5 out of 6 by the end of the weekend. Which is amazing considering the amount of laughing that was going on. I don't think that I have laughed that much in years.
When I got home, Matt had roses waiting for me. Maybe I should go away more often. ;)
