What amazing weather we had this weekend – who would have imagined that in November we would be walking outside without jackets and boots as we spent our weekend at Camp Iawah. It was another wonderful weekend of hooking, eating (yup way or is that weigh too much as usual), laughing and sharing with old friends and new. We spent some time with the quilters enjoying their show and tell and then had our own show and tell. Some pix of our weekend work (finished and in progress)…
