Weekend at Camp

This weekend my sister and I left town for quilt camp.  This camp was the first one sponsored by the Quilt N Bee which is located in Cache, OK and I look forward to attending many more.  Camp was held at Camp Y'Shua in the Wichita Mountains of SW Oklahoma.

Here's the lodge where we stayed.

Downstairs is a very large common room and a big kitchen.  There are plenty of windows and good lighting which made it a perfect spot to sew day or night.  Upstairs are acommodations to sleep about 60 people without being crowded.  The views from the lodge are lovely.

We arrived on Friday afternoon which was the last day of winter.  It was a bit cloudy and windy, but otherwise a warm and pleasant day to make the drive.  When we got out of the car I noticed the beginnings of this year's spring flowers.


Shortly after everyone arrived a strong cold front moved through which dropped the temperature sharply and brought along a big snow storm.  Since we had no need to go outside again until Sunday morning we were able to enjoy the snow.  In spite of what looked like a good 6-8" falling from the sky the ground was so warm that the snow never got more than 2" deep.

We spent all day Saturday sewing, eating, and having lots of fun making new friends.

The snow stopped shortly before sundown and we were treated to a lovely sunset.

Sunday morning dawned cold, but clear and by the time we left after lunch the roads were clear and dry.

    What a fun way to spend the weekend. Were there classes or just group sewing?

    Were there classes or just group sewing? Both. There were two classes to choose from. We could have learned to make Shooting Star or done a mystery quilt, but I elected to simply work on my UFOs all weekend.
