Fuel for the Soul
For me, there is very little that refreshes more than observing the world from a mountain top, especially in the fall with the leaves turning color.
Last Sunday I motored up to the Holston Presbytery Camp and Retreat Center in Banner Elk, NC for four days of sewing, eating, and fun at Mountain Quilt Camp. Our hostess was Cath Evans from High Country Quilt Shop in Butler, TN.
This was a new adventure for me, having heard about it from another blogger -- Joy at The Joyful Quilter. Check her blog for a full account of our first Mountain Quilt Camp.

I got started right away on my OMG by putting borders on a Halloween panel ...

Monday and Tuesday were devoted to the third quilt from leftovers in my Scrumptious collection. I am using another pattern from 101 Fabulous Rotary-Cut Quilts -- Army Star.

OR I could use the extra units for quilt 4 .... NAH!
Wednesday was devoted to Dots and Dashes, my many-years-old monkey wrench project.

In my leisurely trip home on Thursday I had plenty of time to reflect on my experience -- the absolutely gorgeous weather, the out-of-sight food, the delightful new friends I met, the progress I made ...
At the same time, I tried not to think about the two weeks coming up when my husband will have cataracts removed from both eyes. I know most folks come through with flying colors and can see so much better afterwards, but I'm worried for him, nonetheless. Thankfully SIL will be here to take care of the Queen Mother and I can devote my time to caring for DH.
Not sure if there will be much sewing in the next two weeks so I'm glad I met my One Monthly Goal with a week to spare!
