This was our sewing area at the retreat. Bonnie's living/dining room. Bonnie was taking photos while we were sewing or making jewelry.
Bonnie was working on a tropical 5" square project. The final version may end up with sashing in teal and perhaps black outer border. It was a bit busy having the squares next to one another. Her second project lay in wait until a second copy of the pattern could be secured. There was lots of strip cutting afterwards, but no pictures to share.
Donna joined in making jewelry for us. This is a new craft project for Donna. She even learned a new way of tying off a single strand bracelet. These pieces were gifted to each of us. Thanks Donna!
Kerry's first project and the only one photographed comes from the 2022 Cupid Box, Fat Quarter Quilt Shop. It really turned out nice. Kerry's second project is a black version of Winter Blues. A huge project that she managed to do quite a lot of work on. You will see both of these projects on her blog
and again on my blog as I will be making both projects too.
Kristy worked on a year long BOM project. This one is a large project. I think she got all but two months and putting the entire project together done during the retreat. What you see on the design wall is just a portion of the project.
Terry's first project is a lap size that will be perfect to snuggle up with if Yuma ever gets chilly... Actually I suppose there are some of those evenings inside with the AC. Terry worked on a second project, but no photos of it.
As I mentioned yesterday we all had a great time sewing. (My projects were shown there
.) There's a possibility of making this an annual retreat where the participants might be larger. Time will see how this might work out. Now it is time for me to put everything in its place in my sewing room!
