Guess what?

Guess where I am going today for the weekend?   Can you RETREAT!  Yes! Lucky me I am leaving to go to my favorite retreat place…Homestead Cabin Retreat…in no where (Hillpoint) WI…no just kidding..it is a perfect place for a retreat house…no cell reception, just in the middle of farm country….I love going to Patsy’s and hope that our retreat house has the same inviting atmosphere where quilter’s gathering for what they love best!   I should be packing, instead of being on this computer…but I just put together my Settler’s Pride BOM to finish the last block and start the borders…here it is …i will be working on it this weekend along with another little quilt for Featherweight Club…just thought those of you doing this would want a peek…I sewed the wool blocks together with 1/2″ seam allowances on my machine using my walking foot…then pressed the seams open.  This worked so good I think MY next BOM that I design will be wool on wool…it is so fun to work with…FYI you will not hear from me for a few days…but I will report back on Monday of what fun I’ve had…LB

Comments on the Gathering…

Hey…thanks eveyone for the wonderful comments…and yes you can move in!  To answer a bunch of questions at once…The black quilt in the main dining room is call Wisconsin Whig Rose…I designed it for our Guild’s raffle quilt a few years back and I knew the woman who won it…I told her if she ever wanted to sell it please let me know…well, about a year later she needed a little money to help with some of her kids college education.  So I purchased the quilt from her and now it is mine….I just love this quilt!  It has ruched flowers in the center of those blocks and it is just special to me….The snowman quilt with the big snowflake is called Winter Garden…which is also a pattern both are still available, but you may have to call or write in your request in the comment section if you want to purchase these patterns….but maybe they are under Our Designs under Quilts…..You can tell that you southern girls are not used to snow…the airports around here hardly shut down due to snow…and besides…if we are having a blizzard, which hardly ever happens..you get to stay until it is over!  How bad is that?  We get lots of snow storms, but they usually only last a day and are over, but the airports don’t delay because of snow…Blizzard and strong winds yes…but not a normal snowstorm…You girls are just CHICKEN…to come here durring our winter…just admit it….we love winter here….it is a lot of fun and very pretty….LB

Photos from the Gatherings Open House…

 

Well I promised I would show all of you “The Gathering” as far as it was on the Open House.  We are still going through the internet orders and will pick a winner soon….for the free weekend Jan-March.  It is snowing here today…I think our first or at least the prettiest snowfall we have had yet…I think some of you CA and Southern Girls should come to The Gathering and visit the snow this winter…wouldn’t that be cool…you could just look at it through the window and sew away….then go back to your warm home weather after the weekend…here are the pics..everything looks a litle brighter than it is because of all those daylight lights…I missed a few shots but here is what I have for now…I will fill in the voids later…you will be sick of me talking about it in the next couple of weeks…we are working on the headboards for the upper rooms…the bathrooms on the lower level and then just a little more tweeking and hunting for bedside tables and such….curtains and you know…stuff!….LB
