for the love of wool weekend…

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       Well our first “wool” weekend at “The Gathering is in the books…I know I had a great time…all my new girlfriends I think had ball too!  All of them were from Illinois, Minnesota and Delaware.  By the time they left they were well fed and their wallets were a little less full…I think most of them went to the shop everyday it was open, they had a $50 gift card in their pocket and they were itchin to spend it!  I can certainly understand it when they tell me there is no shop like ours where they live….good for me,  not as nice for them..but that is why we have the internet!  Buy the time they left we had 15 rebookings for the same time next year…can’t wait to see them, a great group of girls.

the girls with their new wool project

On Sunday after the wool weekend…I went to see what my husband was up to all weekend…He was Sturgeon Fishing on Lake Winnebago for the first time…He and our neighbor Scott have been on the ice every morning at 6am…here is their new Ice House…Nikki (Scott’s wife) and I drove out to visit the boys…then went to the bar to see what fish got registered…there wasn’t many and here are two that I seen…

Nick and Scott and "their" new house...

I think my quilting weekends are a much better way to go… I am in Dallas visiting MODA  it is very excititing and I will “fill” you in…No more fish stories, I promise.I miss my CA boys…(that would be the puppies)

    Oh I’m soooo envious!!! How I’d love to join your group for a wool weekend! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE wool applique. I quilt also, although I’m not that fond of machine piecing. However I think I could work on applique all day long! Glad everyone had so much fun on the retreat!

    Your pillow is simple and darling. Great job! (I can’t read your text, though, because of the black type on black background.) Congrats on joining the Moda family! You are with the best!

    Love the pillow…simple and timeless! It’s great getting to “meet” all you designers and learn a little more about you!
    I am in total agreement about the “Brad Pitt-loincloth-pillow fight”. Just sayin’….;)

    Hi Lisa,
    Great pillow and love the natural look and how you made it simple with the stitching and wool. Very cool. As for your question about how to get a picture on your side bar – go to the back side of your blog and click on DESIGN, then Add a Gadget and then you should be able to select: a picture gadget and add it to the sidebar. Another way is if you have the code then you would go to DESIGN, add a gadget, and then select: configure HTML/JavaScript. Hopefully that will work for you. If not email me at my address and maybe we can problem solve. I’m no expert and have found things by trial and error.

    What a cute pillow, Lisa. Your Wool Weekends sound great. The boys look happy with their uptown ice house “home away from home”! At least everyone is having fun. 🙂
