Isn't it always the case that you need a vacation to recover from your vacation? I got back last night from my retreat in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. I had a wonderful time with a fabulous group of women who are incredibly kind to include me (a California girl, complete with flip flops in winter!). It snowed all day on Friday and I was out walking along the lake early Saturday. Isn't this gorgeous?
One of the projects that was organized (and optional) was to make mittens using felted wool sweaters. I had a great time even though I'm probably not going to get much use out of them in California. Maybe Oregon, though.
We had show 'n tell on Saturday night and I'm going to post pictures each day. Here is Debbie Dodge (behind) showing her Dipped in Chocolate quilt which consists of tiny 4-patches which finish at 1.5"!! Aren't they fabulous?
I have a Farmer's Wife quilt to show you also which was done by Pat's sister, Rose. It's gorgeous and very inspiring. That's for tomorrow or Wednesday, though, along with some other fabulous tops!
Our Sow-A-Long gets started on February 1st. I'm thinking we will shoot for 6 blocks a month; I'll post them twice a month. You can sow along or not, entirely up to you, or even at your own speed. So start to think about your fabrics. The blocks finish at 6". So you won't be needing a whole lot of fabric.
Have a great Tuesday!!
