Where does time go? I sure wish I could find some that I have lost. This month is passing so fast. Next week we have QSC's fall retreat.
This is such a fantastic weekend. This year over 300 quilters will gather at White Oak conference center for classes, show and tell,meeting friends we haven't seen since last year. This is one of those times that when it's over, we are all so exhausted, but, it's a good tired, if you know what I mean. We are also inspired to go home and try some of the wonderful techniques that we have seen.

Once I get home from there: it's off to Aiken to judge the quilt show for the Carolina Pines Quilters. This is a new experience for me and I am looking forward to the challenge.

This is a show at the Aiken County Museum that will hang from November 1 - 27, 2011. This is their 31st show and sure to be a good one.

So, if you are in or around Aiken, S.C., do yourself a favor and head over to the Museum and view this free show. Lot's of eye candy.

Then we have to most anticipated event of the month.

That's right.....One Loose Thread and the Frayed Knots head to the coast of South Carolina for the first Beach retreat. We will be sewing at the Camp St. Christopher Conference Center on Seabrook Island. The 'Frayed Knots' are packed and ready to go.

On the way they will be stopping in Orangeburg, S. C. to visit with the folks at 'A Stitch in Time Again' quilt shop. A wonderful young shop with so much great fabric.

Down the road a few miles they will get to Summerville, S. C., the home of 2 great quilt shops. One is the world renoun 'People Places and Quilts' and the other is 'Sew and Sew'. Totally different fabrics and totally different shop climates.

These next few weeks will really be busy. Christmas is coming up fast and I am just beginning to realize that. What to get for the Grandchildren and for Mr. OLT? Big questions to be answered. Makes my head hurt to even think about it.

New and exciting things are happening. There is a NEW RETREAT in the works for May 2012!!!!  Two fantastic teachers !! Two fantastic Techniques!!!!  Two fantastic Quilts !!!!More on that soon. Just save the dates May 7 - 10, 2012!!!!!

Have a great week. Pictures from retreat when I return.
