Last Tuesday my friend Nancy planned to deliver some finished quilts out at North Bend State Park. They were having one of their three annual quilt retreats at the Lodge. So I went along. The 46 quilters were so friendly and welcoming that I decided to join them. So .....
I took off on Wednesday last week for the quilt retreat at North Bend State Park, joining 46 quilters from Ohio, WestVirginia, Tenn. It's out in the woods and a little rustic.
OK I'm joking that's not the Lodge. You can blame my DH ... he thought it would be funny.
This is the "real" lodge. I forgot to take a photo so this is one from their website during summer.

The evening ended with a skit, "North Bend Nursing Home"
It started to snow on Wednesday afternoon ... and kept snowing .... oops
DH came to pick me up Friday morning ..... oh dear the roads
We made it down the mountain side into the closest town, Harrisville, about 8 miles from North Bend State Park.
Now we're on the 4 lane but only 1 lane was cleared
Oh dear I do hope the tractor trailer driver is ok
The closer we get to our city the road is better
And there she is ... our little brick house ... about 32 miles from North Bend
