Today we took a little road trip and went out to see my sewing room and on to Quilter’s Patch, the quilt shop in Santa Anna. The ladies there are so nice and they had a great discount for our group and we took advantage of the sale and discount. I’m not even sure how many yards came home with me but I’ll figure it out in time for the stash report!
We’re all busy
This is one Doris finished binding yesterday. I think she said it’s America the Beautiful from a McCall’s Quilting series. The quilt is gorgeous, as is Doris’ piecing and quilting.
There’s some knitting going on, a bit of beading and a whole lot of quilting. We’re having fun. Wish you were here! 🙂
Oh, I wish I was there!! Thanks for the update, I’m sure you’re busy. Looking forward to hearing more about it when it’s over and you’re back home. I’m hoping you will be doing more retreats and that sometime in the future it will work for me to come. Have fun!!

I wish I could have been at the retreat. Maybe the next one if you have more. I know you’ll are having too much fun. A friend and I decided to have a mini-retreat of our own today (6 hours worth!!). We talked, ate, talked, ate some more and did a little sewing!

What a gorgeous quilt! Thank Doris for the eye candy. And thank you for sharing. What was on the menu today?
Doris’ America the Beautiful quilt is wonderful! Looking forward to more pictures, and wish I was there too. How many are at the retreat? It sure sounds fun!
that is a beautiful quilt! thanks for sharing with us. looks like some great progress is being made on several fronts.
The quilt is quite lovely. Do I spy a man quilter in your midst or is he an errand husband? I’m sure you are all having loads of fun; how could you not!
Yep that’s me. I am here helping when I can but mostly watching my wife having fun at what she likes to do best.
Byron is every bit as nice as his sweet wife, Terry! I’m so happy to have both those Louisiana folks here!
