Last weekend was our annual retreat to Rosemary’s,
our local quilt shop/friendly retreat center.
Rosemary is extremely generous to open her home/quilt shop to quilters who want to meet, sew, shop, sleep & dine at the local yet delicious restaurants of which we choose authentic; Mexican, Italian, & Chinese!
There are more restaurants within the same two block radius from her shop including a diner next door where Loraine & Chris ate breakfast plus many more restaurants & stores throughout the little town of Highland to make this a perfect destination to sew with friends.
I prefer left-over Chinese & DiMaggio’s pizza for my breakfast…
While there, I finally cut into my new Mill Book Circa 1892 collection that I showed you last week.
I’m working on another new pattern using my Tiny & Mini Dresden plates.
I can’t get enough!
I know, right???
Fun was shared by all that were able to attend.
Lots of sewing, chatting & eating…
Unfortunately, I didn’t remember to ask someone to take a photo of our group & my phone doesn’t have a camera timer darn it (at least not that I can find!)
We all accomplished a lot & yesterday I set to removing freezer paper templates.
These are all the petals on my kitchen table drying.
The sun was shining so the lighting isn’t even, but a pretty cool image anyway I think.
Today after helping with charity quilts at our guild meeting & a trip to the dentist for me & Clare, I’ve been making more petals & my sewing room helper (still nameless) is helping.
She’s keeping them wrinkle-free until I can cut apart, press, trim & turn them.
Her services have been invaluable!
Just keep sewing…

Tell me more about your retreats at Rosemary’s. Where do you stay, etc.
We literally stay at Rosemary’s. I’m not sure what her max. is. You sew in her classroom & either bring food to eat or go out. I personally can’t imagine packing food along with all of my sewing supplies & personal belongings, but Rosemary says some do! Give her a call 654-5045.
