Nebraska Bound: Day 1!

I left for Nebraska on Saturday morning. Technically, I left for Southern Pines. No need to consult a map, it is NOT on the way! I’m heading to Nebraska for the AccuQuilt Go! Retreat and the barn quilt unveiling. Two of my friends, Gail & Debbie are coming too!
I was teaching the Swoon block at Linderella’s before we officially head towards Nebraska!! I love this block and it’s great fun to teach:) I had an awesome group! Pat chose some great Bonnie & Camille fabric, how fitting!! (Camille Roskelley designed both!)

And Carrie used batiks! One of her fabrics is ombré which produced a great effect.

After class, I got to see lots of my favorite people! Cyndi and Missy stopped by; I met them at a retreat last year! And Michelle brought her animal quilt! I LOVE IT!

Then I hit the road!! I headed to High Point to pick up Gail! Debbie is flying…wimp;) And we were on the road by 4…woohoo!! Perfect timing! This is the exit for my house. Glad to be back where I started!

The mountains are gorgeous!! The drive on I-40 is so pretty in the Smokies!

Spent the night in Crossville, TN. There are no pictures because it was a monsoon rain storm. The tale will continue tomorrow!

  1. I’m going to try and make it to the unveiling. I’m in KC and hope to be able to get free to leave in the early early morning Friday. If you see a way to thin, one legged wonder on crutches say hi.
