You can see here in the background the set up at Hen and Chicks for sleeping at the retreats. There were rows of beds with quilts behind the dividers. And each row had a set of dividers to separate it. It's really a great set up for classes and retreats and the prices are very reasonable. Polly and I had it to ourselves - sat and chatted and relaxed at night - I appliqued and she hooked. It was really almost a vacation.
The night after class we did a trunk show - of my quilts, not Laurie's - the plan was that she bring them with her from Michigan. But I brought quite a few having been prewarned by Polly. And we had Polly's awesome rugs. Here's an example I fell in love with. It's her interpretation of an antique rug and how could I pass up those kitties. I can't applique or read in the car. It makes me sick. I can however, hook. (Pep says I have hooked my way across America.) :) Houston, here I come.
Back at home, a visit from the grandkids was in order. I had missed their smiling faces with such short visits due to Market and then the workshop.
Here's Cullen at one of his favorite pastimes - climbing. He is an inveterate Spider Man fan and emulates his hero at every opportunity. Also note the sandals. The eyes light up when Cullen walks. How cool is that?
