July McCloud and More Goodies!

I just finished hostessing my quilting retreat in one of my most favorite places...McCloud, CA.  30 quilters gathered for 4 days of non-stop quilting, eating, shopping and misbehaving and we had a wonderful time.  Everyone comes to get away from "life" for awhile...including me.  Retreats give us all a chance to take a deep breath, regather our energy and focus and then head back home to face reality.  Even though I'm supposed to be "in charge" of the retreat, I feel like I'm on my own personal retreat and have just invited 30+ good friends to join me.  I am sharing a few pictures of our weekend.

I also wanted to share a few more pieces that I've worked on this past week in preparation for my week in Denver which starts tomorrow.  I hope to have lots of pictures to share very soon!  The small piece above measures only 3 x 5"!

Oh...and another thing...Karen Azevedo shared this link to a post on The Quilt Show which features the MOST AMAZING corded French white work quilt. Check It Out!!!

Hugs, Cindy :)

Looks like everyone had a wonderful time and created beautiful projects. Love all the FMQ that you shared. Just wish I had been able to attend. Hopefully in 2013.

I want to go to McCloud :(. But then I'd have to tote my longarm and I just don't know how to get in in a suitcase! I'm always so jealous of your retreats. Maybe I'll just come to gab.
