Camp Part Two!!!

I think I caught the computer off guard. It seems if I just wait long enough it gives up and let's me on for a bit of time!!!!! We are computer shopping, OK, computer thinking, but there is a new computer coming sooner than later....promise I will stop WHINNNNNING about it!

Back to camp report! Here's Eleanor Burns with her Quilt In A Day girls. These ladies are so much fun and kept camp so much fun! They are there for all our questions, and any help that we needed. The bounus from my camp experience is meeting Annie (last in line) last November and I am so thankful for the wonderful friendship that we have formed. She is one of the nicest people in the whole world. To the right is sweet Cindy who kept the camp quilt shop running smoothly......wow that's a great quilt, and that girl always is smiling and cute as a button :-)!!

Love the center photo (again, thanks Annie) with Eleanor and some campers at a tea she hosted at her home. They are pictured in her sewing studio which as you can imagine is the most amazing place!!!!

Some more beauties below!!!!!!!!!! The ladies in the center are having a look at some wonderful antique blocks that someone shared with us. That's Annie and myself at the top...I brought my pinwheel template and she whipped out her sweet quilt. My friend Nurse Carol sewing like crazy in the bottom corner! There were so many wonderful quilts, and many more that I didn't get pictures of.
The food at camp is DELICIOUS....no photos, so you will have to take my word for it but OMW!!!! Here's are friend Marilyn enjoying some yummy cranberry sauce; here's our friend Marilyn enjoying some yummy whip cream; and here's our friend Marilyn looking over the raffle prize she won!!! Campers bring in items for the auction and then all money raised is donated to a women's resource center. Over $1,400.00 raised! A shout out to our friend Sharon H..........camp was not in Montana!!! We all missed you and hope to have you there next time!!!!
Here's what I worked on......my ME quilt top done and I am loving it!! A quilt for baby polka dot that is way out of my color box, but goes with fabrics in his room, the far picture shows blocks from a quilt I started about 4 years ago!!! I got the rest of the 16 patches done and all the rows for the stars are pieced!!! If you read my blog it is apparent by now I am a very, very good starter! The finishing I need a bit of help with!

The computer gremlins have been very kind this morning and I know my time is limited. Email is another story. I usually can zip one or two out in the morning and before this post I wrote
to Ms. Geranium who is in the process of getting all packed up which I am still in denial about:-( !

Not being able to visit you all has been very frustrating, but hopefully that will be resolved very soon!!! Happy mid week bloggy people!!

The fun never, ever, stopped did it? So glad you enjoyed yourself and that you were able to report by sneaking up on your poor, unsuspecting, computer!

Hi sweet girl,
So fun to "see" the camp thru your eyes. I will forward a link to Cindi. She will get a kick seeing herself on your blog.
I will have to save the rest of my posts til I get back from our Anniversary trip. My gosh....34 years and I still like the guy (G)!!! XXX Annie

I would love to go to a camp like that. The quilts are all so pretty with so many different designs and patterns. Also I am a bit closer to having my own blog. My son has helped me to design my header. Thanks for all the email help on getting it going. Bonnie in Texas

Your camp looked magical! I would love to go to quilt camp/retreat with you some time. Maybe we can retreat in the Bay Area some time? Centralize ourselves.

So glad you're connected again!

Me again. That site meter is amazing. My sister in law put it on her blog. Her friends that have been giving her such a bad time about having a blog are on her blog all time. We were laughing like crazy. They don't realize we know they are on her blog. You were right. Bonnie in Texas

I am finally catching up with your most important (to me!) blog! What fun you all had - someday, I'm going to go to one of these retreats! I love that you ladies made a power outage! LOL The quilts are all beautiful - I love the one you made for Luke!
