almost all of the quilt sharing pictures that I took
at the quilting retreat were a big fail!!!
I didn't have a good location for picture taking -
back many rows and off to the side,
so each of my quilt pictures
featured a head (or four)
between me and the quilt I was photographing.
(I may have to borrow some from a friend who was front and center.)
I do have one good picture from my camera
that a friend took for me -
I got to meet up IN PERSON with a couple of blog friends!
One of the gals that also goes to retreat - Judy -
asked if I was doing the small doll quilt swap
with Lori of Humble Quilts.
I was, but she wasn't this year.
But that got us talking about swaps we'd done before
and she said that someone that I'd swapped with in years prior
lived close to the retreat area...
So we messaged her (facebook has its benefits)
and she was able to come to visit during retreat!!!
Here we are!!:
Small Quilts and Doll Quilts,

and me on the right, standing in front of a beautiful Jane Stickle quilt.
Lunch and chatting and sharing for most of an afternoon...
I love how quilting brought us together!!!
They both have wonderful blogs and do fantastic quilty-work -
if you have some time, check them out and say hi!
I'm back to doing some stitching,
and then after lunch,
some weekend fun with the grands!
