Another wonderful Seven Sisters retreat has come and gone. We all wonder how our 3 day stay together can end so quickly. We also wonder why no matter how hard we try to pare down the food and projects we bring, we always end up with too much of both!
I was working on some secret sewing, so I don’t have many photos to share. I did manage to piece my June mini top and will try to get it quilted this week.
And, a little late night mishap stitching!
Fotini enjoyed her stay despite her inability to work on anything due to a minor mishap – a broken wrist! The rest of us played Little Red Hen and all took a part in stitching her top together. Kathy will do her quilting magic and it will be ready in time for the wedding at the end of July.
Charlotte stitches us all under the table. She is like the Energizer Bunny!
Christina can turn the tiniest “discards” into something amazing. I am itching to start one like this!
Karen M. was working on her fabulous kit from Missouri Star Company. I forgot to get a photo of the center, it is stunning!
We try to have a challenge of some sort and last year Fotini had given us a bag with instructions to fill it with "unwanted" fabrics over the course of the year. We dumped them all on the table and we all politely grabbed our favorites! And since there is never enough fabric we all made a short trip down the road to visit Cyndi at The Busy Thimble. If you ever get to Maine you MUST visit. It is the best quilt shop ever!!
And, of course we all managed to have fun doing what we do best!
As we said our goodbyes, we decided that our next year's spring retreat would be at the Vermont Quilt Festival. I hope we see some of you there!
