Sewing Retreat

I love seeing the creativity come from each person during the week of sewing retreat.

 great grandchildren play together.

Clair's invention of a squirrel backpack.  I wish you could see this backpack in real life, it is so cute.

Cousins learning creative skills.

Polly completed this quilt.  It is such an intriguing quilt.

Brighton is making an art quilt of a picture she drew.

One of the projects I worked on was a 
paper pieced pattern for a grandchild.

Parla working on cutting out a dress.

This is a project I added gray borders to
 and started machine quilting.

Now to look forward to next year's retreat.
