I made an unexpected quick trip to the Dallas Quilt Guild this past Thursday-Friday to present the Superior Threads program. I had a wonderful time and there is a LOT to be said for Texas hospitality! Everyone made me feel very welcome and they took very good care of me. Thank you Dallas!
My good friend Goldie Olson and I have been hostessing weekend sew-in retreats at our local quilt store, Honeyrun Quilters, in Chico for the past few years. 20 retreaters gather to quilt, eat, and enjoy each other's company...the retreaters divide the days and bring a potluck lunch to share and Goldie and I feed them dinner on Saturday night. Nothing fancy BUT all of us really look forward to this weekend five times a year. I'm pretty sure everyone appreciates just how special these weekends are and even when some of us arrive a bit out of sorts from life-stuff the rest of us are there to pick them up and get them back on their feet again.
Once everyone is nested and taken care of I'm always able to slip in some quality quilting time myself and managed to get a decent amount of quilting done on my Feathered Crystals quilt. I spent another hour tonight on it and before turning out my sewing room lights I noticed just how pretty the quilt looked in my sewing machine and I wanted to share....
I also wanted to share a snapshot of something very new I'm working on...talk about getting out of my box! More to come on this project in a little while...

Thank you, Cindy, for a great weekend. You are absolutely right, those of us that attend do look forward to these weekends and consider them a very special time. Thanks to you, many, many friendships have been made and we have been able to learn so much from you, our fabulous teacher. Thank you!!
