I just got back from my latest retreat in Nashville, Indiana. We get to stay at a great place called The Cornerstone Inn. I only get to see these ladies twice a year and really enjoy our time together. The girls at this retreat come from all over--Minnesota, Tennessee, Indiana, Illinois, and others. This retreat is less about work for me than pleasure. I only do handwork (primarily because the space is SO limited), spend time visiting, and spend time shopping. Nashville has some great little shops and some really good restaurants.
I finished the stitching and cutting out of my extreme embroidery piece. I still haven't decided how I will be displaying or finishing the piece. I also worked on some extreme embroidery pins, my "forever" hexagon quilt, and the hand quilting on my "Bouquets for a New Day" quilt.
Here are some pics of what other people worked on. Several people were working on blocks and didn't show their pieces. Robin worked on a child's quilt. How cute are these!
Karen worked on the embroidery for this miniature.
Nancy finished this baby quilt top.
She also finished this "Bionic Bag." I LOVED this bag--it has LOTS of zippers and compartments. She used an adorable sewing-themed line of fabric from Moda.
