Come Talk Turkey in Windham!

Remind me to give up horizontal stripes…and shirts that are too big and comfy!

Seeing this photo I realize it is not my best look, but boy did we have fun yesterday.

It’s been two days of full workshops, and amazing pot luck lunches ---

Of course, the dessert table stays out for the duration of the day. 

Hence the need for said big shirt…voluminous shirt!

It’s time for spring to warm up and make it nice enough to be outside and resume nice long walks on a regular basis, don’t you agree??

Thanks to everone who made this visit possible.  For all of the hard work of organization that goes on behind the scenes.  We’d been planning this for 3 years, and it finally arrived!


Oooooooo!  Lovely black 301!

Of course I had to run over and pet her and say hello!  Isn’t she a beauty??


Sewing away!


So Many Strings!


All of the fun gossip happens at the trimming table!


It was a great way to spend the day!

You will find the pattern for Talkin' Turkey in my book String Fling.

Today I have some free time –I’m not needed until my lecture tonight so the plan is to go out in search of light house photo opportunities and have some lunch out.

I’ve got a couple hours this morning to do some computer work, and I’m glad to have that time to get to some things that have been waiting.

I’d rather be sewing, but I’ll be typing instead.

Presentation tonight, some time to explore tomorrow before my afternoon flight home!

Have a terrific Monday, everyone!

  1. Don't worry about your clothes. We are looking at your quilts!

  2. Hmmm. And I thought you were looking really skinny in that photo! Have a great time exploring today.

  3. I have done talking turkey in red, but I am very anxious to see what it looks like using different colors! I hope people post their finished quilts, so I can see. Blue, green, and yellow WOW!

  4. I bet they were too busy sewing and laughing together to judge what you are wearing. This is a quilt class not a fashion show and stick out your tongue at the nay sayers.... thats what I have to say.
    I probably would get looks for the Doctor who or Firefly shirts I wear. But they are nicely decorated with threads of quilting! LOL

  5. I will never understand why the manufactures have to make horizontal strips in garments---do they not know how many women look for vertical stripes? you look fabulous dahlin!!!!! The only times I can think of when you didnt have fun is when something goes wrong at the villa!!!!!! ps--hoping you find some lighthouses today * Carole

  6. I didn't realize you took so many pictures, they are awesome! Two great classes and looking forward to the presentation this evening! Thank you so much for everything!
