Don’t judge me! I love fabric….and no, there is NEVER ENOUGH FABRIC! While on vacation I found a great fabric shop that was just a couple of miles from where we were staying and I got some pretty pieces of fabric. And when I got home I needed just one more day away. I decided to make a run to the Lancaster area and do a little more fabric shopping. I may have gone overboard. LOL! I’m not worried though. I’ll use it up pretty quick. 🙂 Now to find a place to put it all.

Stitch & Bitch V was the best retreat we have ever had. I don’t know if it was the combination of people, the projects we were working on, the food and games, or just what led to it but this was by far the most fun we have had at a retreat. And we CAN NOT WAIT to do it again. We will on Feb 2-6, 2023. I think most everyone will return but just in case they can’t be sure to let me know if you want to be added to the wait list. We always give the people who were at the last retreat the first right of refusal for the next but if they can’t attend we open it to the wait list. And trust me, you don’t want to miss this!!!!!

We saw the Andy Griffith Mural on Moore Avenue in downtown Mount Airy when we visited earlier this week. It is created with spray paint! The mural displays four aspects of Andy’s life and career against the backdrop of Pilot Mountain. The mural, done entirely with spray paint by Greensboro artist Jeks, was completed in May 2022, in time for what would have been Andy’s 96th birthday. Our tour guide told us about watching the artist working with spray cans of paint to do it. That is pretty amazing for spray cans!

We had a couple of days away to recharge our creative juices. On the way back home we stopped at Poplar Forest, Thomas Jefferson’s Retreat. They are doing so much work there restoring the structure to the way he had it originally. It’s so amazing that they have so many documents that Jefferson wrote to tradesmen describing what he wanted. It will be even more amazing when completed.

It’s the quiet before the storm….storm of sewing, that is! The Quilter’s Retreat started yesterday afternoon and while I didn’t get here till early evening I tried to catch up by sewing until 11 pm. And now, as usual, I am the first one up. I just can’t seen to sleep past 5 am. It’s kind of nice in the quiet minutes before all the machines fire up. I can’t wait to see what everyone is doing! More to come.
