NOTE- I would like to suggest you click on OLD POSTS a couple of times since this is a new blog and see the progressions of this retreat...it is fun to see where they began and where they got to in development and what fun we had...
There is going to be a wonderful array of buildings all across this Italian story about her son, husband and she while visiting Florence. Her son attended school there.
Lissa's girl (herself) starts to take shape
Sue made her fairy gifts for everyone. These little birds had paper legs she painted and buttons and they were adorable!
Here Wendy works on the sunshine for the birthday gift quilt
On the last day everyone hurries to get things done before they fly home.
Here Sue shows off the colors and clever piecing of her blocks. Sue is a wonderful artist.
Sue's wonderful tree
Lynette sewing on her sashing
Dawn's girl begins to take shape in the quilt and she has feathers and flowers coming out of the top of the hat...so cute
Linda working hard on her piece
Sandy begins to cut her strata
This little dress that Linda made is a tea towel that fits over your stove in the kitchen-it is so cute...I am not sure my photography does it justice
Sandi looks to see how her story will fit onto her quilt canvas....She is really good with color...and ideas too
It got kind of confusing anytime I called Sandy!
I am ending with showing off a stash bag of Laurie's with my name in it.... :0)
Great fun and color with these little things!
All in all we had a wonderful time and made new friends who will keep in touch I am sure. Everything this week has been positive, affirming, creative, happy and fun.
Now I am going to take a nice nap tomorrow after I put away irons and boards and dishes and plates and a million other things........phew.
