Don't ask God to make your life easier, ask Him to make you a stronger person.

Quilters of South Carolina . . . . .

We had a wonderful weekend in the middle of the state. . . . all 290 of us!  4 of the 290 ,were Teresa of Stitchin' FriendsJoyce of One Loose Thread, Karen of Quilting with Karen, and Vickie of Jackson Patch Quilting.  Joyce was even in my needlekeeper class.  Maybe she will blog about it since I totally forgot to take pictures in that class!  Hint, hint, Joyce!

We were at White Oak, a baptist convention center near Winnsboro.  Beautiful facility but the food leaves something to be desired.  That's okay . . . . .we weren't there to eat. . . . we were there to sew!

Pictures of my pincushion class, hard at work!

And the only picture I took of the 15 pincushions made in class . . . .

My samples on the wall . . . . .

I even managed to get a picture of my roomie . . . . .  She keeps me in stitches . . . . (get it? . . . . stitches . . . . .quilting . . . . . I crack myself up . . . .)

And while watching roomie make a spectacle of herself speech, I took a picture of another one of my best quilting buds working on her crazy quilt block.

We just finished on Sunday and I am ready to go back!

Blessings, Cathi

I love the pincushion, but my favourite picture had to be the pumpkin quilts.
