Pineapple Blossom at Stitchin’ Heaven!

Hello from Greenbriar Retreat in Eustace, Texas!

I finished up my time at the fabulous Stitchin’ Heaven Quilt Shop after our Pineapple Blossom Workshop was over, and was shuttled down the road about an hour’s drive where I’ll be spending today teaching Scrappy Mountain Majesties to another fun group – and benefit of benefits, I get to spend a couple of retreat evenings (Last night and tonight) just hanging out and playing along side these quilty gals while they sew!

Our day was full yesterday, as busy big workshops are, but I did get a bit of time to catch a few colorful shots of the beautiful array of bolts in the front of the shop!

Definitely drool worthy!

Students quickly paying for purchases!

Our lunch hour is almost over!


Our very full class in full swing!

The retreat I am currently at is in a fairly remote location and the satellite internet is proving to be a bit of a challenge in getting this post uploaded, so rather than making a long chain of photos, I’m going to just  embed the slide show that took more than an hour to upload and let you have it it!

It was a fabulous day – thanks again for the invite, Stitchin’ Heaven!  I look forward to being back in April of 2019n for a 5 day event!


Yeeeeehaw, y’all!

Last evening before night fall I made a little instagram slide show of my new digs:

It’s going to be a fun day today! 

If photos are slow to post to social media, if my blog tomorrow morning (Monday) doesn’t post early due to my early departure back to DFW airport and the land of good connection, never worry – I’m in very good hands and rather than stress over the connection issue, I’m turning my attention to the ladies at hand and we will play catch up once I return home.


Quiltville Quote of the Day!

Vintage butterfly quilt found in Alabama.
As this post slowly makes its way to upload as a draft to Blogger, the quilters are awaking and machines are starting to hum.  Breakfast smells are beginning to waft from the kitchen.

A day of retreat fun is about to commence!

Have a wonderful day, everyone!

  5. Just curious, did I miss the drawing for the Quilty Box?
    Love all the wonderful color combos everyone is using for their quilts. So much fun seeing how your designs come together to make each quilt so different from each other.

    Safe travels.

  6. Lucky you! Love Greenbriar and the ladies there!

  7. I can't believe you were so close, I didn't get to meet you. :(. I love Stitchin' Heaven, don't get to come often, but I always come home with an 2-arm load. Mineola is a great little town with great antique shops. Don't know where you were "down the road" but you were still in TX so it had to be great. Thanks for all the great posts.
