This past weekend was the 13th Annual Quilting in the Cabin , near Yosemite. From early afternoon on Thursday until after breakfast on Monday we were without cell phone reception or wifi. It was Fabulous.
We forgot to take any pictures of the three of us at the cabin, so we stood in the Fresno heat while Ruth's husband, Gordon, snapped this. (L-R: Dotty--it's her cabin at Yosemite, me, Ruth--who drove up from San Diego)
Don't let anyone ever tell you that gluten-free food cannot be tasty. Ruth made these crepes one morning for breakfast.
We take turns making breakfast and dinner, and then just snack midday. Friday morning was my turn to make breakfast. I headed upstairs at 7 a.m. (or so I thought...) to make my breakfast omelet, wondering why it seemed so dark outside. Looking for the lightswitch, the first thing I turned on was the garbage disposal. Oops. Made the omelet, got ready to put it in the oven for the next hour, and looked up at the clock above the oven. 5:40 a.m.???? Seriously? When I got back down to my room and checked my travel alarm, I realized it was still set for Kansas City time, so I got up at 5 a.m. instead of 7 a.m.!! Doh. Ruth heard footsteps overhead when I was up there in the kitchen and thought there was an intruder. But then wondered why he seemed to be cooking!
We always hang completed projects on the railing of the spiral staircase.
It's nice to have a history with friends. Hours of laughter, sometimes sharing parts of our lives that no one else hears,
and sometimes just the hum of three sewing machines (with an occasional outburst of "Seriously? I'm 'air sewing' again?")
I did a lot of trimming:
And eventually ended up with this (complete reveal soon but you can see more of it hanging on the railing above):
Finished some fun blocks (and ran out of brown fabric or all of my "birds in the 'hood" would be done!)
It was hot and we only ended up taking a walk one night, at dusk:
What a wonderful weekend with wonderful friends. Already looking forward to next year.
I'm linking to WIP Wednesday here. Thanks for hosting us this week, Sukie!
