Another Retreat Farewell!

I waved off the May Quiltvillians yesterday morning -

What a fantastic and fun group of ladies.

Yesterday was also the first "donning of the shorts" day - temps reached FINALLY about 80 degrees and since it was sunny and I'd be running back and forth to flip laundry - once the ladies were gone no one was there to be blinded by the whiteness of my winter legs.  LOL!

Sunny Day Smiles!

Monday turned out to be the lovely day we were hoping for - it didn't rain!  The sky was blue.

And I grabbed a few willing quilters who wanted to get out for a walk, stretch their legs, breathe in some fresh air and MOVE their bodies after being inside since they arrived on Wednesday.

And I was raring to go too.  There had been so much rain and it was nice to have a cooperative day where we could just go close by and walk along the creek for about an hour.

That's it.  One hour.  We can step away from the machines and projects for one hour and do something good for our bodies.

Quilting With The Ladies!

Sometimes you just have to pull up your big girl panties and power through!

And that's just what I did with the remaining string pieced triangles for my Ecliped quilt.

I just put on something to binge on Netflix, and got down to business.

I already knew I had printed out the right number of remaining foundations - so no counting was involved.

i just got down to business and made these happen.

Let It Rain!

The May Quiltvillians are quilting up a storm inside while the rain continues to fall intermittently outside...and that's okay!

There is plenty of food, and a plethora of fabric and projects to keep them busy through the weekend and beyond!

Projects are going up on the design walls, and there is color and inspiration everywhere!
