retreat photos...



 Where we worked...
B sewed on the left, V sewed on the right

My SewEzi table set up

What we worked on...

Bev's tabletopper. It needs another border so not finished yet.

V worked on a tablerunner from the book "Night and Day" by Eleanor Burns

Turning Twenty Again worked on by B
What we finished...
Pillow for DD2

 close up of straight line quilting

Mystery Christmas present

New Wave quilt made by me, Tutorial by OhFransson


V and her finished tablerunner

and there was one more tablerunner finished, but I missed getting a photo.  I also put a zipper in a tote bag which was surprisingly simple and took all of 10 minutes.

So here are the finished projects...
  1. zipper in tote by me
  2. New Wave quilt top finished by me
  3. pillow quilted and made by me
  4. mystery christmas gift finished by me
  5. B finished a tablerunner
  6. V finished a tablerunner
We all had a wonderful time.  We ate, we sewed and we took a trip to Specialty Quilts  who has more Moda pre-cuts than any store I have ever seen.  They were literally everywhere..  Then as we were leaving we noticed this,..  we were in a resort area.  I'm not sure why FedEx thought they should have their truck towed there.  It's not a town, there isn't anything for miles around...

when it positively, absolutely has to get there...


and every morning this little fellow would show up on the balcony...


And the winner?
