All that was leading up to this last week-end when we meet for our 2nd Annual DFW Gang Quilt Guild Get Together in Rockwall, Texas for 2 days of quilt related fun! We had out of town guests this time who had heard about all the great times we had and just HAD to join us! Sheryl came in from Missouri, Dorothy and a friend, Mara Del came from Kansas, Dorie came from Oregon, Darsie and Mary Lee came up from Houston, and Lynn came in from California. Add on our regulars and we had a group of 15. We had doubled in size from our first meeting!!! WOW!! What fun!
Friday we spent on a Shop Hop and hit 5 different quilt shops in the area! I'm sure we made a big impact on the ecomony of the DFW area!!! We certainly made a dent in our pocket-books! So many choices and so many people to help us make our choices! Then on Saturday we had our Sit N Sew at "Stitching Memories" in Rockwall (see picture above). Every chair was filled and the room was filled with lots of laughter and the busy sounds of women working on all kinds of quilting activities. We had door prizes, a FQ lotto game, a game to guess who made the blocks in our challenge quilt and an Ornament Exchange. We even found time for lunch! Then at 4:30 the husband of the "locals" meet us at Salt Grass restaurant for dinner. All in all the bestest weekend ever. We are all exhausted, but what a good tired it is. There's something about getting together with like minded people that makes you feel just downright GOOD!!!!
Let quilitng help you make someone smile!
