My Retreat

Well I had a good time and many new friends. Ate too much and even walked  alot. The grounds are beautiful. The fall leaves and setting  spectacular. There was a herd of deer that came through on Tuesday about 8 of them. I took 2 classes. One with Debby Lee Machine quilting on your domestic machine. Learned a lot hope to be able to practice so I can actually quilt out a few things of mine. The second one was a class with Lorraine Covington,Buds In A Basket from a book  Bouquet Of Quilts.
 In that class we learned the circle using Karen Kay Buckley circles and then freezer paper applique and how to piece curves. Below is a few photos of the few things I did. The orange basket block is the one we did for the learning. the bottom 2 are of the quilting class may be hard to see we were to sew in our name  not an easy task !! my P looks like an R but hey I will master soon LOL It was fun to do and plan to do a lot of practicing in the near future. If you ever get a chance to go to a retreat I say go a great experience.
