Maggie, Dotty, Ruth, Vicki, me
We were completely without internet access, and cell phone reception was spotty at best. It's amazing how many more hours pop up in the day when there is no Instagram or Facebook to distract you.
The first evening, we saw eight deer eating at the cabin next door.
We certainly did our share of eating, although we never ever ate lunch. We always had a midday snack that looked like this,
but let me repeat, it was not lunch. So we tell ourselves each day...
We were able to accomplish a lot, and as is tradition, we hang finished projects over the stair railing.
I took these pictures the morning we had to pack up, and Dotty had already taken down her very major accomplishment--a wedding quilt for her grandson. That border took her most of the weekend. It's amazing! So many tiny pieces...

There is nothing on the railing from me. I worked ahead on my Bella Skillbuilder block of the month for Fat Quarter Shop. I was able to complete all the months except for Month 8 because I needed template plastic.
And then I started on a new project called Cumbry Crossing, based on a photo I took of the man standing in front of me in church one Sunday. He was wearing the most gorgeous shirt. :)
While all that was going on, things were getting ready for the estate sale of the things my parents left behind when they moved to assisted living. So strange to walk through their house and see so many familiar things.
I'm not sure that I even want to go to the sale on Saturday. So many memories, all up for sale.
So that takes care of the last week in April. It's hard to believe that May is already around the corner. I sometimes take for granted all the gorgeous flowers in bloom at businesses all around town. I quickly snapped a picture of these when I left the post office yesterday afternoon.
Have a lovely weekend.
