Can’t believe I haven’t posted about retreat yet. Or that it’s been over a months since I got back. Time flies.
As usual we had a wonderful time. It was great to catch up with all my friends from the Mid-West.
Four of us were making the same pattern, Crossroads. Three of us finished our tops, although one was a slight variation due to a cutting mistake. But it is lovely just the same. Mine is on the left in the pic below.
I also finished my wall hanging top that I purchased in Skagway, Alaska in June. It turned out better than I expected.
I did purchase some things, but I didn’t go overboard on yardage this year. Here’s my loot:
Bobbins and Bits from Pat Sloan purchased at Yoder’s.
Also, purchased at Yoder’s Savoniere Jelly Roll. The Rooster fabric came from Lolly’s basement. As did the Fat Quarters. The Atkinson Design’s patter came from our stop at Erica’s on the way home.
Christmas Towel and Table Runner kits purchased at Erica’s in South Bend.
Cute zippered bag for my rotary cutter from Atkinson Design’s purchased at Erica’s.
Paris Flea Market Fat Quarter pack purchased at Erica’s.
And then there was the free stuff:
Fat Quarter gifts from local merchants. The cute scissors were in Muffet’s door prize and she gave them to me. 🙂
And I won this cute table runner pattern and fabric. Donated by Carol’s boss, Terri Degenkolb of Whimsicals. I’ll start this one after the holidays.
We’ll all meet again in March in Danville, IL for our Winter/Spring retreat.
