The hubby and I went camping in Alabama last week after the hectic past few weeks we have had. Work and quilting obligations have worn us both out, we needed to re-charge our batteries!!

The main activity was relaxing!! We also hiked to the highest point in Alabama - Cheaha. It was beautiful there!! 

Mostly we relaxed, walked to dogs and experimented with cooking over a camp fire.

I did manage to visit quite a few shops during our trip. We stopped at Pale Moon Yarns in Andalusia, which by the way has a large amount of quilting fabrics and many beautiful yarns!! Thimbles in Birmingham carries beautiful heirloom fabrics and quilting cottons. And the last shop we stopped at was Sew Bernina in Montgomery, they have a friendly staff and modern fabrics.

Last night I started a secret Christmas swap project doing improv trees, which is due on Nov 9th at the quilt meeting. More about this later...

The fish bags are done and in the nick-of-time!! I was finishing them up during the last guild meeting - the time they were due, so I don't have any good glamour shots of them - sorry.

The Boo Bat mini quilt is finished and my swap partner loved it! This picture is from the ECMQG site here.

Now it's back to work and more deadlines - gotta make that money so I can play with fabric :)

  1. Sorry there was no fall color for you. However, hiking and relaxing by the campfire, not to mention the occasional side trip to a fabric store or two, make for GREAT mini-vacation.
