My time has come to an end at the Potty Mouth Piercer Annual Retreat. I got so much accomplished in just two days on my new design. If I had two more full days of quilting totally free on interruptions, this quilt would be done! Well, not really, but I'd be way ahead of the game.
Mauna is working on stockings for Christmas.....smart lady to get them started now. Look at the flange under the name! I do love a flange!
Kaaren finished another pillow she made out of wool for a friend who collects quails.
Even the back is attractive!
There's so much detail from topknot to toe.
Here is part of our workspace. We each had our own area so we could sew and watch the Olympics or listen to music. The cutting table is a dream, and we all took advantage of it to save on back strain. Denise is working on a wonderful new design which you are going to love. I will be sure and post a link to her site when the pattern is ready. It's gorgeous and so are her fabrics!
Here's a sample of what we had to eat. My contribution to the retreat was breakfast yesterday. I promise I will post recipes in my recipe tab at the top of the blog. We began with an orange coffee cake.
With a fruit salad......
.....and Fiesta Brunch. This dish is made with eggs, corn tortillas, sausage, cheese and spices.
For our dinner, Denise prepared homemade chicken enchiladas. Our plates were licked clean! We ate like royalty.
This was my first year as an official Potty Mouth Piecer. In the past, I've visited with the girls and I've had them over to our cabin for wine and cheese. But this year I became official. I passed the hazing, and I didn't get "thrown off the quilting island".
Here's a special "shout out" to Pam who couldn't make it this year. We missed you Pam and we hope you will feel better soon. It was good to hear your voice yesterday. I'm looking forward to seeing you at In Between Stitches soon.
Today it's back to the real world for me.....housecleaning the cabin for company this weekend. Friends always stay at our cabin this time every year to celebrate family birthdays. I have to get out the long duster and get after the cobwebs that have a way of multiplying like bunnies! I can't use the line that I'm decorating the cabin for Halloween anymore!
