Where have I been?
A little over a week ago we were covered in 4 inches of snow. OK, Northerners, don't laugh; but it was the largest single snowfall we've had in many years and it was crippling to many of us, especially those of us who live on a hill on the shaded part of the street. We kept power and cable, but the basement temp couldn't catch up so very little sewing occurred.
I did manage to finish this little piece for the youth group auction. 1/4 yard for binding
The rest of my time was spent preparing for classes at Mountain Quilt Fest in Pigeon Forge, TN. Any readers who are going to be there, shoot me a line and I'll try to meet up with you.
I recently purchased this little bag specifically for quilt shows since it's small and has a nice long chain for wearing cross-body.

I had to get prepped for Quilt Fest early because yesterday SIL treated us to an afternoon at the SEC men's basketball tournament. Here we are enjoying ourselves at the SEC Fan Fair before having brunch at the Hilton.

Wish someone had reminded me to suck in the tummy! It was fun and the first time we all three had been on an outing together in the 7 years since Pops passed away. SIL had thoughtfully made arrangements with our favorite Saturday sitter to be sure she would be on duty and comfortable being alone with MIL for most of the day. All went well; Kentucy won (Georgia didn't) and we came home to a delicious crockpot of stew I had started before we left in the morning.
So for the benefit of the stash report I'll say nothing in and negligible out. I know next week's report will be much different after a week of shopping in Pigeon Forge!
I'm off to meet the girls in just a few so I'll wish you a happy week. Don't forget to let me know if you are in PF!
