It always takes a day or two to bounce back after a retreat--staying up later than usual, getting up earlier, sewing like crazy and, of course, all the yummy food--it takes a toll!
It's totally worth it though--new friends and so much fun!
The facilities at Keepsakes were great:
|Each table was equipped with these sturdy wine bottle holders.|
Cocktail hour starts at 3 PM !!
|A "toe"st for a great retreat!!|
|Lois made us these adorable wine glass cozies so we could tell our glasses apart.|
That is, if you remembered which shoes your glass was wearing.
(Yes, I'm talking to you Susan! )
Helen was the winner for most finished projects: eight quilt tops for her Etsy Shop,
as well as some table toppers.
Susan (a close second) got a lots of models finished for the shop including this gorgeous place mat:
Aren't they pretty? I love Dresden Plates! These will probably be a class and kits.
They're fused onto a stiff interfacing and finished by machine (and washable)
I managed to get my Scrappy Trip together.
I made a total of 35 blocks using two inch strips. It measures 45" X 64".
I plan to add a border to make it large enough for a QOV.
And I made 16 more blocks for my Paper Doll quilt.
