The first week in September is a gathering of Fiber Artists in Searsport - about and hour and a half from our home. The gathering takes place in our favorite campground, Searsport Shores, on Penobscot Bay. This year they hosted the famous Gee's Bend quilters - and my friend, Cheryl Lawson, posted a wonderful blog about these amazing women and their legacy

The sewing machines were humming - and the Ladies were harmonizing with soulful hymns - and the colors were eye-popping. I hovered around the edges watching (since I'm not a serious quilter). At lunchtime I returned to our campsite to discover Mishka was having her kittens!
