 Here is what we worked on!  I have to say I am terribly impressed with the things 
everyone got done!
Kim worked on several projects, from solids to sock monkeys, 
to scrap tiles, to owls!
Helen will be wearing her new VEST very soon!
(perhaps even have a blog?)
We told her she needs to start a blog and officially call it, HelenNoBlog... ;-)
Jackie labored away to get her paper piecing done, and she did! 
She would not let herself at the scrap bins til she finished it... Looks fabulous Jackie!
I gave each of the "retreater's" a MARY panel...
Jackie then dove into the scrap bins to finish off... Isn't it so sweet!!
remember she inspired my Lady?

Andrea started this project at the retreat I did in MN last summer!  This retreat the top made
itself together! LOVE IT!
 Here's what I was working on... I pulled colors I never use... PINK and BLACK.... 
threw in some cheddar, and purple, with splashes of red, and some funky blue.... 
The start of a big medallion quilt... with applique to come...
Bonnie was making these squashed hex's that make stars in the middle. 
Very fun!!!
Loads of scraps.  
Be looking for that BOX Bonnie... More coming your way!
Karen made a good dent in the scraps as well! 
She whipped up this scrappy top 
and all these glorious blocks below!

Jessica finished her BLOCKs and got this top together!

LeeAnn, well, she spent at least 4 hours cutting HST's
What a great big glorious pile of HST'S!! right?

And as of 10:30 last night, She left this morning with a  finished top....

Isn't it glorious?

A very prolific bunch!!

Thanks so much Ladies!
Now I need to go play with my gifted HOUSE blocks....
You all ROCK!
