Back from retreat....finale

So you don't get sick of hearing about my retreat, this will be my last post on it....but I have to say that I am still reveling in all the inspiration (we had two nights of show and tell), happiness and relaxation that I gleaned from it.  


Here we are all gathered on the spiral staircase.  We stayed at the Mercy Center in St. Louis, MO.  I highly recommend it.  Nice accommodations set on beautiful grounds (although I never do get out to enjoy the grounds because I am having way too much fun inside). 

The second project I worked on while at retreat was a Houndstooth baby quilt in baby blue and white Kona Cotton.




I sewed all my strips and started cutting out one strip at a time, sewed together the row and then would cut out the next.  Time just flies by way too fast, so I will be finishing this one at home. 

I plan on making two more of these.  One will be baby pink and white and the other one like the pattern's picture, charcoal and white. 

I do want to share with you a couple gifts that I made for my car mate and my room mate.

I made the Flapper purse.  I am going to have to make myself one because I think it would be great to carry when you don't want to take everything that you normally carry in your regular purse.  


This one is in rust batiks. 


I love this black one, too.  Very graphic, I think. 

There is a pocket on the outside and two on the inside. 




Great for some cash, credit card, I-phone and I.D.  

Well, that is it until the next time.  Wish you could have all been there.

I said I wouldn't......

I meant it when I said it. But I failed and ended up doing it. I picked up the knitting needles instead of getting back to my pile o...
