I Love Switzerland!!!!!!!!!!

As I sit under the apple tree in the kids yard, I'm serenaded by cow bells...love that sound!

That's me yesterday, again under the apple tree, taking a cat nap for about 30 minutes (after being up for 30+ hours). Took a walk in the canton forest behind the house before the nap, went out to eat, took another walk in the canton forest after the nap.

After being up for about 37 hour...I had to sleep.

Ringgold Quilt Shop Roadtrip



On the 5th of June, four cars full of quilt shoppers headed to Ringgold, Georgia to check out Sew Be It Quilt Shop.  A little over a year ago it was destroyed, along with a good portion of Ringgold, in a tornado.  The town and the shop have come a long way in a years time.

As you can see from the bags that everyone has, it was a successful shopping trip...a good time was had by all!

Next Tuesday, we will have our annual picnic at ETC Park on Legion Road.  We will meet at 11:00 a.m. and bring a dish to pass.

Live At The Shop Hop....Again

Sharon and Chuck did the Shop Hop on the motorcycle and made Ellijay their last stop. Sharon won two drawings while at the Quilt Shop On The Square...and they were her third and fourth wins for the day. Sharon will be buying a lottery ticket!
