Spent a lovely couple of days at the quilt retreat, but I decided not to include any pics of ladies in pj’s sitting at their machines! You all know how it goes at a retreat…and, of course, we all ate too much from the snack table! Yummmmm!
What I also did not take a picture of was my first effort at caging this cabachon–it was really bad. And I love this little bit of rock so I re-did it and I’m so much happier with it.
I’ll be adding a bunch of other stuff to this small piece, but it was the problem with the cabachon that kept me awake until it was solved! Good thing there is no sleep requirement at retreat.
My magenta and lime tree project got all quilted, too. The lime green leaves aren’t on it yet and I think I’ll be adding some more yarn, but I feel like huge progress was made.
I took enough projects to last about three weeks, but didn’t really work on that many. I spent a good bit of time on this beaded project. I had a hard time finding beads the right color, so when I finally did, I was excited to get it finished.
This 9 x 11 size is a good working size for me, not too small. I think there will be a lot of projects this size before I move on. Here’s a detail of this project, too. I’m loving being able to display these beautiful stones.
The next few days will be getting organized for my next teaching trip. I’m always afraid that I won’t give enough to my students…is that normal teacher anxiety? I love it when I’m actually in there teaching though! Can’t wait for that.
