Weekend Excitement

 
It was an exciting long weekend at a family gathering and "Pig Roast" in Houston BC. Houston is a very small town about 1.5 hr flight from home and a 1 hour drive when we landed. We set up the tables and seating using hay bales. All five tables each had whatever flowers we could find around the farm and we used canning jars to display them. It all looked very country.
 
This is the pig roaster, they started the pig at 9am and dinner was ready about 10 hrs later.

More excited news....while I was away I won Cheryl's and Darlene's Christmas Through the Year giveaway AND double surprise I won Kathy's Bowl's with Borders Giveaway.  Woohoo...I was thrilled.

And even more excitement. The last day we were in Houston I was at the grocery store (the only one in town). I went over to the magazine section and reached for a quilting magazine and a lady standing there, made a comment that she looked at all of them last week. We started talking and Pamela is the long arm quilter in the area and she has a studio in her house. I was very surprised to find out this small town had a active guild of 17 people and Pamela stocks supplies and fabrics in her home. I wish I knew sooner but being the last day of our visit I couldn't make it to see her studio. I hope to visit her next time.
  
The pig is just about ready to be carved. This 90 pound pig did not last long with over 30 hungry people around.

So that was a pretty exciting weekend for sure.
