Girls' Day Out
This morning Mary Stori gave a program for the Lake Oconee Quilters in Eatonton, GA (just 1 hour south of us). Mary is a wonderful teacher and lecturer, so several ladies from the Athens quilt guild drove down to see her.
Mary spoke about how to use beads in quilts and art quilts effectively, and she had plenty of samples and ideas.
Lucky me...I got one of her Beading Buddies books with 78 beading stitches and a quick reference to step-by-step directions.
We're still recovering from the holidays and getting back to normal this week. It was great to see both sons in the same week over the holidays. I had my camera the whole time we were with Darrell and Krystle and I totally forgot to snap a shot of them. Here's one from their camera...
Bryan (below, on the right) came home with one of his Army buddies, Brandon. This was gift giving day...
They both just came out of their last deployment (AMEN!) and will be civilians before long.
All is well.
