Raliegh, NC

Saturday Patricia and I finished a Quilt Retreat with Memory Lane Quilting at Greenbo Lake State Park, KY.  I was not expecting too much and was pleasantly surprised by the response to our products.  Just 16 participants and three teachers, but everyone got personalized attention and they had all their questions answered.  That made everyone happy.

Sunday we drove over the West Virginia mountains and down and east to Raleigh, NC.  We had it all, rain, snow and wind, then sunshine.   About 100 miles from finishing we found a Girl Scout Troop selling cookies.  Add milk and we had a late lunch. Really healthy and all that!  But it did bring out the sunshine even if it was a bit cool.  Not cold by our standards, but cool enough to need a jacket, which I forgot to bring on this trip.  But I brought two on the last trip and never put them on so go figure.

Today we are in downtown Raleigh sitting in Starbucks hoping it will warm up enough for a stroll around the city center.  Since there are trees blooming this cold snap has to be unusual.  At least there is no snow on the ground, just some ice in the shady side of buildings.

This afternoon we will head for Hampton, VA for the MidAtlantic Quilt Festival.  Then home for a week before the Lancaster Spring Quilt Show.
