Last weekend was our annual guild retreat and what a treat!
In preparation for the weekend, I decided to make a little favor for everyone. Here is my basket of little kleenex covers. I made 29, well actually I cut 9 wrong and didn't realize until afterward - doh! so I really made 38, ouch.
What's going on here! Sewing stuff to the right, personal stuff to the left -
Here is the front of the Shawnee Inn in the Poconos in Pennsylvania. It was beautiful setting!
Here is a shot of the moon on Friday night - gorgeous!
Here is our workroom. It is in the lower level and it was wonderful!
Here is my new toy! I popped over to Pocono Sew & Vac to get one. My friend, Susan, found a good site for these if you are interested and they offer free shipping! Click here to see it.
It really extended my work area, which was wonderful. I love that it matches the black and gold detail of my feather weight.
This is what I worked on for a while. It will be a king sized quilt and I'm still working on the lay out. I'm using civil war nine patches and a variety of chintz looking fabrics.
I also knuckled down and pieced my four-patch posie top. I'll be working on borders soon.
Here are some of the show tell projects.
This is Sally's project. I love it!
I sat next to her (lucky me) and she shared some scraps with me. I'm going to make a little quilt for our quilt show mini-auction.
And a few more views of the Inn. If you are near the NJ/PA area it is a wonderful place for a sewing retreat.
A view of the Deleware river. I'll bet it is really pretty in the fall!
I'm off to the Red & White exhibit and the Empire Quilters show tomorrow - say hello if you see me!
