We had a plan to have a long quilt retreat here in NC. Some people I knew and some that I was looking forward to meet. Quilters are always very nice people, so I knew we would have fun. We started well on Friday afternoon; but Irene the Hurricane, decided we did not need electricity for our fun. So one day into it, the lights went out.
What were we to do? Find out if the nearest quilt shop had power; and if they were opened, of course.
The lady at the shop told us that she had power; and would stay open for an extra half hour.
The photo above is us ready to hit the road to shop. And shop we did.
Unfortunately, power did not return and we had to pack and come home half a day earlier.
The UFO's had to be repacked :-( Oh, well!
We did have fun! I was right, these are great people.
