Sewing Retreat - Friends - Fun

 I am starting a new quilt.  First I will make many triangle units?

I am learning a new art.  Autumn and I are taking pottery classes at Blue Ridge Community College.

A few ladies came to my house for a quilting day.
What a fun time we had together!

Amy worked on Spinning Pinwheels.

A few of the nieces join us which always adds spice to the party.

Painting was also a part of the retreat.

Ironing, hand work, writing and resting all make a wonderful atmosphere.

Julia and Polly finished up their mystery
 quilts with Bonnie Hunter.

Rebecca worked on her quilt from Jan Krentz's book.
