Sewing with Friends! It doesn't get any better than this!
I spent last week with my Brown Bagger friends quilting away in the Berkshires. Karen, our fearless Berkshire's leader figured out that it was our 13th year out in Western Mass and made a list of all the places we've stayed over the years. Cheryl was our social director and put together a comprehensive list of restaurants for our culinary pleasure.
Marion and I started our trip on Tuesday morning. Our friend Debbie had recommended the $1.99 store in Auburn, so we made a quick stop there at Exit 10 off the Mass Pike.
This year the Girls went a little nutty and extended the week so it started on Sunday. Marion and I didn't think we could quilt for 7 days straight, so we came down on Tuesday. The Girls were in full swing! Joanne S. had this beautiful batik panel quilt in progress (in the photo background). She finished the whole top (in fact all of her projects!) by the end of the week. In the foreground of this photo you can see some of the goodies that Karen had for sale...lots of beautiful bali pops and jelly rolls! The kind without calories!
This is getting to be a long post, so good night for now...to be continued...
