#277 Girls Day Out

Yesterday was the annual Hugo Ladies Quilt Show and I went with 3 other quilters to see the show. It is held in a tiny old-time school house that the ladies actually own. They are some of the best quilters around. Thier hand quilting and applique is professional and they always have a challenge with art quilts that I can't wait to see. This year's challenge was "Games". They were to make a wall hanging that showed a game. They had tons of fun hangings from golf to Mexican Train.
Then there is the grounds outside the show filled with vendors of all sorts. We had to make our way through every booth and spend money as often as we could.
(This would be the raffle quilt I did NOT win.)
On the way home, we found a new restaurant in Grants Pass called TapRock and it was the icing on the days adventure.
(somehow my camera switched to B&W here.)

We also poked along old Highway 99 and saw where they are removing Savage Rapids Dam and got some information about an old house that is caving in that I want to put into a water color and a wall hanging.
