Retreat Day 1

Day one of our retreat was fun.  We are right on the water which is usually great but with a grey sky and snow still on the ground from our snowfall yesterday it wasn't near as pretty as usual.

We definitely had a good turn out of people.  One lady was demonstrating how to make a small purse, another how to make a crochet necklace and many ladies were helping others with layout and color ideas. We had a wonderful pot luck lunch and I got just about as much sewing done as talking.   Nice day!!

I managed to make all my strip sets for my black and white and red quilt and then cut them into blocks when I got home.

A friend of mine had been working on a couple of black and white runners and I had seen a couple of other quilts, one black and while and yellow and another black and white with a pop of bright green so I just had to get out my fabrics and finally use them.

I found you, lol Yes, black and whites are also a favorite color arrangement for me as well. I think I have made about three and they all turned out great. It was nice to visit with friends at the retreat. Come on spring and make everyone happy.

If one didn't read your text from the picture I could envision nicely folded up pillow cases. =^.^= Hope you got payment, Mom says she has strips. Sounds like a fun time during the retreat! Sandi
