quilterscache website run by marcia hohn. i'm calling mine "aurora borealis" as the batiks are bright jewel tones (mostly) and will be wallhanging size. only 2 more stars to make then it's on to project #4. **** a bit cooler here today but no matter, retreat fun isn't contingent on outside temps...and why oh why is it wednesday already?????
this is the view outside my room at retreat. a view like this isn't required for retreat fun, but it sure does up the ambiance factor 100 fold. it was instant relief to finally get off the interstate and spy these pastoral vistas of endless fields and barns. my reservation for next year is already made! *** got quite a bit of sewing done yesterday. it was a gorgeous day, temps in the 70s. i brought 4 sewing projects with me. the blocks i was working on at the motel are done as far as they can be. then the amish ocean waves is also done as far as it can be as well....ran out of triangles. now i am sewing up batik scraps on a new piece i'll show you later. that leaves one project to do after this and with 3+ days left, should get most of that done as well. *** yes it was 70s yesterday, today 60s, tomorrow 50s and then in the 40s for the weekend. i brought shorts, fleece pants, t-shirts and sweatshirts so i am ready for the fluctuation in temps. now back to sewing....

victoria has some other photos of this nice show, different than mine, so be sure and check them out. *** my sewing time is now focused on sewing on the binding of my scrappy donation quilt which i've named "corn maze", hoping for a finish in the next couple of days. today is a day off for me and it's filled with errands and tasks getting ready for retreat. it's been rainy and windy all week but looks like the skies will clear in time for departure. a whole year wait is almost over. am thinking about maybe doing the spring retreat, since it's an awfully long time between quilty R and R....will see what mr. bank balance says about it....LOL
