I pulled out Quaker Christmas to finish the stitching - my goal to have it done by the end of June!! Well, the threads were not in the baggie with the pattern and the fabric! so neadless to say I started pulling apart my new sewing area/studio in a frantic search, but to no avail. So the replacement piece is Garden Gate by Shepherd Bush. This piece was started as a round robin many years ago and I never finished it due to a mistake that was done on it, but it is out now and heading toward the finish line. I am still searching for my QC threads, hoping to find them soon, would love to get that finished.
Last weekend DH, Terry and I headed to Jekyll Island, GA. Terry had a conference there for 3 days so I tagged along for a little R&R. I did a bit of stitching, but I actually read most of the time. Pope Joan was the book - it is for my book club discussion group.
Now just FYI, I do not do bridges very well, as a matter of fact if I know there is a bridge on a trip, I plan, yes!!! I plan when I drive and when someone else will drive - The feeling I get when going onto a bridge is just like having an out of body experience - it is very frightening for me! Does anyone else have problems going over bridges????
Anyway, there were two bridges we had to cross to get to the island.
Below is a shot of the Sidney Lanier Bridge/ Ocean Highway that crosses over the intercoastal heading towards Jekyll Island, GA.

Here is the bridge that puts you on the island

It was a wonderful, quiet, and beautiful time away, I guess I just needed some down time.
Next weekend is anothr conference for Terry - this time it is in Savannah, GA.
Thank you for visiting ----- Roberta
