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.
here is a picture of the new used carpet I got for my sewing area. I am pleased with it. I had to move all the stuff out and sweep and remove cobwebs and such. But it is looking good now!! I have the other side to work on tomorrow. It is a disaster for sure. A friend gave this me she got new stuff for her home. I feel so blessed to get it. the next few pictures will be of the room coming together and the stuff being placed back in it. the sign was a gift to me many years ago from sister Roma. anyways here are the other photos. thanks for peeking in on me enjoy your visit
