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…
