Back from Retreat

Had a great time at the retreat. Just realized that the one thing we didn't do is take a group picture, just too busy I guess, lol.

First thing we did was make a little name band bracelet. I really like this, and plan to make several for Christmas presents. (Pay no attention to the hand with all the age spots!!!)

Next day we had the class with Edith Dyke. I only used 3 fabrics (wild ones!!) from my stash. It came out very nice I think. I worked on this most of the time.

The nine patch border was a pain to get attached. The center blocks were 9 patches that were cut and reassembled, cool huh?

Here's a picture of myself and my sister Patty.

We went shopping and I bought some stuff, but haven't taken pictures yet. Maybe in a couple of days, as today we are driving to Atlanta to pick up my son at the airport (actually the Chamblee Marta station) and he will be coming for a week.

I'm tired, but happy.
