Sunday on the Road

Greetings from The Greenbrier in West Virginia.  DH and I had a lovely drive up yesterday.  This place is almost as big as Opryland Hotel!  The plethora of patterns on the walls, floors, beds,  and windows is enough to set a sane person over the edge.

Used my free $20 in the casino and parlayed that into $12.50 in my pocket.  As usual I should have quit while I was ahead, but what's the fun in that?

Did you know that there is a secret bunker here for the President to escape to in time of emergency?  We're going to take the tour this morning and then I can give you more detail tomorrow.

Even with temps near 60 yesterday there is still snow in shady patches.  We should be good for the week, though it will be cold at night.

All I managed to move from my stash last week was 5.5 yards for the back of Cathedral Stars.  I have the quilt with me to show Bonnie Hunter in class next week, then it will go in the TBQ (to be quilted) stack of heirlooms awaiting weddings or significant family events.

In this Week:           0.00 yards
In year to Date:      51.75 yards
Out this Week:        5.5 yards
Out Year to Date:  62.0 yards
Net Used 2014:     10.25 yards

Not too bad, BUT this week I will probably hit a few of my favorite shops in WV and next week is Pigeon Forge Mountain Quiltfest.  Most of the things on my shopping list are not fabric; however, I am looking for 6 yards of a cream batik for a specific project.  I'll try not to let too many other things jump into my cart .....

Linking up with Judy's crew at Patchwork Times.


  1. Glad you are having a great trip, lots of fun things to look forward to.

  2. I was looking at the Mountain Fest site last night, trying to figure out how much the quilt show is, and I can't find it anywhere, not even on the tri-fold! I've lived here almost 4 years and haven't been yet, so I thought I might go this year, but maybe not. Definitely the Smoky Mountain Quilters show, though, never miss that one. I hope you are having a wonderful time, and your post made me laugh. How secret is this hideaway for the president if they give tours of it?

    1. I explained in the next post. Nevertheless, Bush did go there during 9-11. Even though it's no longer secret, it is still secure (to a point).
