Fun times

A very fun and productive retreat!
I got 15 scrappy stars done and a lap quilt top pieced... By three
p.m. Sunday, I was bummed that I had to unplug my machine to pack it up!

I'm not sure there is any fabric left in Gruber's quilt shop.... A few
of us really bought the place out, myself is included!!

The MN quilt show was on also... Have a bunch of great pictures I will
post when I get back to New York next week.

It was great to hang out with a bunch of lovely women for a weekend...
I hope everyone got home safely, we had tornadoes around the state and
so much rain... But today of course it's glorious out here at the
cabin. The fish are jumping, birds are singing, and I Am wondering how
I can get my sewing machine plugged back in on my picnic table
outside, over looking the lake.... :-)

  2. maybe a little treadle machine is what you need for the cabin (or a solar powered sewing machine...just a thought!)

  5. Oh.. the idea of sewing outdoors sounds so good! I might have to try that sometime, even if it is in my own backyard!

  6. Sounds like you had a wonderful weekend. I second the idea of a very long extension cord for outside sewing. Looking forward to the quilt show photos.

  10. You really did get a lot done. I guess it pays to make a mess! I thought of you guys at 3:00 Sunday, as I was somewhere in Iowa on my way home. Next year, I'm staying till the very end . . .
