Not just a Friday night

I missed out on signing up for Friday Night Sew In last Friday.  But I didn’t miss out on the sewing!  My friend Linda P. and I attended the spring No Snow retreat in beautiful Haines Junction.  We drove up on Wednesday night so we could be there for the early start at 8:30 Thursday morning.  There was much sewing to be had over the next four days with almost thirty ladies whirring away on their sewing machines.  IMG_8854[1]

Unlike many others I didn’t complete a quilt top, preferring to work on small articles.  Like another Sew Together bag…

And a couple of cute little bunny bags..

a finished table runner…. you may remember that I was working on this one at my friend Dahn’s house back in February.  Well now it is bound and finished and ready to adorn my table….

And a second round for a hexie flower…. Lynette sent me a lovely gift of a set of second round hexies as a thank-you for my time as the coordinator for the Inchy Hexagon Flower Swap...

The rest of the time I spent  working on my postage stamp quilt.  I was able to add three rows – I now have eleven rows done and about another thirty to go…. I don’t have a picture to show right now but stay tuned. 

So a lovely weekend of sewing fun.  Lots of good food and a few good laughs.  What more could one ask for?

I hope you had a great weekend too!

  2. Wow, look at that magnificent display of all the work done, what a stunning place to have a retreat, and your table runner, super. And Mud after snow and slush, nothing better. Header photo says it all.
