Whew, I am slow getting back to real life...I got back on Wednesday late afternoon from our retreat and a stop at a quilt shop. What a wonderful time we had...I don't think I've ever had the opportunity to spend that much time sewing, uninterrupted in my life.
We sewed, ate, laughed, and did it over and over again. We're trying to figure out how we can do this all again really soon. Everyone got lots done...some got whole projects done
and some got parts done
and moved to the next step. I did a little of each. I started and finished this table topper from the book Bits and Pieces.
I got the border fabric when I was in California, they had the sample done and hanging in the shop and Sharon and I just loved it. Now I just have to get it quilted and it will be ready for the patriotic season. It was lots of fun to do...good directions and went together well.
I was also thrilled to get 4 Web Sampler Blocks done
...now I have 6 blocks done and the other 6 have lots of pieces so I need to really concentrate. I got my finishing kit today so all I have to do is get to stitchin LOL!
The sewing group was here today and we had a great time and oh my goodness we had wonderful treats...I made brownies and added the yummy frosting that Karen had posted this week. Oh my, it is out of this world. Then I also made Karen's Oatmeal Cranberry White Chocolate Chip cookies that she posted a week or so ago. Andy loves those...he's not a real big chocolate fan so these cookies are right up his alley...I think he'd eat his weight in these cookies if I let him. Thanks Karen for your delicious treat recipes...I may not be able to zip my pants but it's OK!
The Happy, Happy news from here is that Hampton and his parents are all well again and they will be here tomorrow. I'm not going to get so excited this time, but I'll be doing the dance when the car pulls into the driveway.
Have a great Sunday all!
