Home from Retreat

What a great time we had! Viña de Lestonnac is a wonderful place to meet with friends and quilt. Mom had a great time and so did I.  One of the things we had to bring was a quilt that exemplified our quilting journey.  Here's what Mom brought:
She loves to embroider.

We did make and takes. One was a journal cover. Another is a stitchery - very appropriate for a quilter's journey. Also had a sewing mat/cover  (free) to make:

We also made accidental landscapes - the first photos are the grounds outside - good ideas for our pieces.  

Here are a few of the landscapes created:

These are going to be great wall hangings!  We also had time to work on our own projects:
a scrappy quilt

beautiful grandmothers flower garden

more hexie blocks and a fab heart quilt emerging

Isn't this a gorgeous tablet cover!

I love retreats!
