A few days of Heaven!!!

 I spent last weekend at Camp Asbury, on beautiful Silver Lake- at the Guild's annual retreat. 

 My sewing space started out nice and neat- for the first few minutes!

The first project I worked on was a scrap quilt, which will be donated  later this year at a different retreat.    It was a leaders and enders project- I pieced the four patches and half square triangles over the last year- or two??? 

I made a LOT of them, and have a small bag of them left over.    It still needs borders.

Our friend Kathi retired, so Tracy had the great idea to have us all make Kathi a block for a quilt to celebrate. 
  This one was inspired by Amy Butler's "He said she said" pattern.

But someone had suggested we make curse words for her.  So I took leftover strip sets and made a word I hear her use fairly often.   It was fun, and she loved it.  (she only got one or two others.)

I finished a couple of small pieces to donate to the silent auction later this year.

 This was the teaching sample from a class I taught several years ago.

 I don't remember why I bought this kit, but I finally put it together. 

 Julie brought stuff for us to make these fun dolls!

Another leadersand enders project trying to use up some of the millions of scrap therapy squares I have cut.  Also needs borders.  I'm not sure what it's for yet. 

It was a great time, and I can't wait for next year!!!!

Have you heard about the decline in honeybees?  There are simple things we can all do to help bring them back!

I am grateful for:
Four days away from the world.
Sewing to my heart's content!
Laughing until tears run down your leg. 
My cough is much better.
Hubby understands why I need to get away.
