Here is the Lake House where we had our retreat this past weekend. The front of the house has lots of windows so all you can see....well....I'll just show you....
Isn't this a beautiful view? The lake beyond the trees is at Hills Creek State Park in Wellsboro, PA. The trees and the snow just brush my soul.
After arriving at the Lake House and unpacking my things I ran into town to see Mary and Katie at Needles Quilt Shop. Mary was gone but I had a great visit with Katie and Kathy. They have the most beautiful collection of batik fabrics that I've ever seen. I buy all my batik fabrics when I visit Needles. I need to take a pix of what I bought there....soon :)
When I approach the counter to order a cup of coffee, what do I see but this sign:
Thankfully I was not charged 21.50 for my coffee!!!
Back at the Lake House now. Here is Leona and her beautiful quilt.
I really liked the fabrics Leona chose for this quilt.
Here is another of Leona's quilts. My eyes go buggy ever time I see this bargello pattern.
Marge was working on an needle turn applique block. I really like her marking method. She marks the pattern on some cheap interfacing as shown below and bastes it to the top of her block.
She can then just flip up the interfacing to check for placement without marking on her block.
This is my dear friend Kay. She was working on some English Paper Piecing. This will be her dresser scarf when she is done. I thought that was a great idea.
Bev is also working on some needle turn applique. Oh, did I mention, this is an Applique Group? Oh....well it is :) These gals are part of our Tuesday group who meet once a week to stitch together. (Even though I now live in OH I still feel like I am a part of the group....I call almost every Tuesday to find out what the gals are doing.)
This is Joyce's beautiful quilt that she has made for her son. Some water leaked on it and the dye from the blue batik came through onto the backing. Does anyone have any sure fire ways to clean it before she uses some Color Catcher?
I can't believe the weekend flew by. If finished my quilt top and I'll blog about that soon. I also have more pictures to post but I want to join Mary Jane in the living room for the Golden Globes :)
