Almost Done

The binding is on! This has taken awhile but thanks to a great friend who quilted this, it is almost ready to take a trip to my Grand-daughter Ivy.

This was a really fun pattern to make and while the fabric collection "Glamour, Inc" by Benartex
may be hard to find (I started this last year). but the border on the pattern looks like ribbons - it would be great to use on something else too.

Be sure to stay tuned, I have a couple other projects almost complete to post.

Hugs to all and Happy Sewing

Retreat Opportunity

I have attended a work shop with Mary Lou Weidman in West Virginia for the
last two years. She is a great teacher and a lovely person.

There are several openings still left in the workshop with takes place in
 November (1 - 5). Mary Lou will be teaching a wonderful Christmas workshop
along with her "Out of the Box" Techniques.
This is a wonderful opportunity that is at the Cedar Lakes Conference
Center in Ripley, WV The cost for the retreat is $656.74 for a private room,
$484.49 for a single room, $382.19 for a double room. This includes your
room, 3 (yummy- home cooked) meals a day, and the workshop fee.

This is a link to Mary Lou's blog showing the "Christmas Story Quilt" and
Wreath she will be teaching.
This is a link to her website that shows all the fun things she does:
