Howdy, Getaway, and Jo Morton


A huge thanks to everybody for posting their good wishes re pneumonia; you are all wonderful! Kaiser doctor said it is an infection but not pneumonia so since the trial was destroying the last shreds of my sanity I drove up to Vogel State Park in north Georgia for the week-end. It was fabulous. The fall color was still gorgeous. First sunny and very warm, then on Saturday it got deliciously rainy and overcast (just love stormy weather) and the temperature plummeted. Listened to the wind blowing around the cabin all night. It was 80 degrees in Atlanta Friday afternoon and 37 degrees at the Park on Sunday morning.

There were all kinds of photo ops with the light and then rain dancing on the little lake in front of the cabins.

This is the Park Cat, evidently. He was very friendly and wanted a handout but didn't want the hot dog bit I gave him.

This gourd display was at the entrance to the camp store.





Came home and completed the Challenge top.

Now I need to prepare a bit for the next Jo Morton Club class; here is the layout for the Jo Morton Swap blocks. Oooh I just love all the Jo Morton prints all mixed up like this. I want to get it together to take to the class to show everybody.

Karen that just looks like a wonderful place to run away. I love the setting that you are doing with your Jo Morton blocks. I did that swap also and got my blocks last week. That was such fun. Hope we do it again.

Great photos. I'm in love with the one of the leaves (right below the one of the tin roof cabin). Glad you got some rest.
