This and that

I was reminded I hadn't blogged for a while, but to tell you the truth, sometimes I wonder whether to keep it up.  We'll see.

This past weekend was the annual quilt retreat that I go to.  What a great time I had with friends, and lots and lots of sewing accomplished.  The following photo is the layout of a quilt one of my friends is making for her daughter.  I think it is just spectacular.  Gotta love that blue and pink!
I worked on a couple different projects, and got a lot of blocks completed, which I will plan to post about another time.

The following photo is a quilt I am nearly done quilting on.  I think I have posted about this at least once before.  At any rate, I was within six blocks of being done quilting the body of the quilt, and darn it all, anyway, if I didn't run out of thread.  I did manage to find a pretty good match, so completed that and am half done quilting the border.  I'll post again when it's bound and totally completed.
 I signed up to take a Beginning Wool Applique class with a friend.  That class was Monday, and truthfully, I enjoyed it much more than I thought I would.  It is a fun process.  We all were to purchase a small kit and mine is a Buttermilk Basin kit. 


  1. Hi! I saw that you popped in & visited me, so I decided to come see you too & what a treat! Before my eyes appears your amazing Snail Trail variation aka Shakespeare In The Park, then Hunters Star, then Dove Tails, and then...ahhh...Mt. Hood! The contrast in your quilts is so graphic!

  2. Nancie, thank you so much for visiting and for your kind comments! You mentioned Shakespeare... and I thought of your post about ripping and re-sewing, and I knew I had to tell you that I had Shakespeare nearly quilted and decided I didn't like it, so ripped it all out and re-sandwiched and re-quilted. Anyway, much happier now with it.
