It is a very cute hotel and we had the top floor (penthouse - with huge dining table and kitchen) and the 4 rooms below it. We even had a couple of folks who brought their RV and stayed at the nearby park.
It's a sweet little town, with a ferry landing, lots of boats and some fun architecture.
We arrived home and unpacked and then it was time to prepare for our annual Stashbusters after Christmas party. [held in January]. Patty's church is nearby and lets us use their space for our little gathering [same place where Stone Soup Quilts operates]. And so,
We were able to present Alayne with her wedding quilt - it's been a work-in-progress for quite some time and she was truly overwhelmed,
Stashbusters will start thinking about this year's raffle quilt - what to do. Also Elaine brought a lovely quilt she made using a strip exchange. We are thinking perhaps we want to do one - provide each participant with at least 40 - 2 1/2" strips. And see what you can come up with,
Hers were all blacks and tans. She was suggesting we think about violet (see her sweater above) and maybe a tan or cream or something light. Hmmmmm. Violet is supposed to be a new "in" color, so we should be able to find fabrics to cut and swap.
Lastly, the ugly fabric I got. And I think it really and truly lives up to its name,
Happy, creative 2014 to you and yours!
