Yes, everything is OK. As with everyone, I've had my shares of ups and downs over the last five months, and it was difficult to sit down and say what I wanted to say without saying anything at all. So, I didn't....say anything at all. Now, that period of my life is over, and without further ado I am back, and hopefully here to stay!
So what's been cooking? I'll start with the most recent things first and make my way backwards if I can't find anything else, OK?
I just came back from our Guild's second annual retreat that was held at Tall Oaks Retreat Center in Linwood, KS. This is a beautiful older facility that sits on 340 acres of Tall Oaks. The weather was gorgeous on the day we arrived, but then it rained, and rained, and rained, and rained, and then rained some more! It rained so hard that one of the 100' tall oaks fell down across the road, and into the parking lot where our cars were. No cars were damaged, though, thank heavens, and
There were so very many projects completed and started while we were there, and it was so energizing to be with so many talented quilters. And just plain fun, too! We celebrated two birthdays with birthday cake, and we got to walk a few miles before it started raining.
|I think this is the first night - the last one stitching - Donna who also got the most projects completed!|
|This is called Keyhole, and it's made with one Honeybun roll.|
|This is the pastel version.|

Our guild also does a mystery quilt each year. Guild Projects Coordinator, Nancy reveals her version here. Isn't it just beautiful?
She also worked with EQ to swap the blocks around to make a second look. I believe this is Kaye's quilt. I love it too!
|And the last one up again....is she working or sleeping?|
