Final Retreat Work- a blessing for all of us

Shannon above this a wonderful
Self Portrait.
Mary loves her cat named "Miss Kitty."
This is her self portrait
Shannon did two quilts. She started this quilt with a pieced purple flower and it took flight after that!
 Sharon loves to camp
With friends in Kentucky. There are
Lots more details being planned. It is wonderful in person!
Sharon Also made this adorable Queen Bee. Love the pieces borders!
 This is Sheila who came for the first time. We all enjoyed her and her wonderful
Stories about her new life! She has a lot of sewing skills!
Doreen did a darling story self portrait. Such fun! That chicken cracks me up!
 Caroline loves elephants and figured out how to do a portrait with both she and an elephant were in. I think this is adorable!!
And finally Shannon who is multi talented is doing herself with a marguerite. It sure is cute!!
     We still
Have room at my retreat. If you would like to come to Spokane Valley and have fun with Story quilts there is more information on my website at
