...and to avoid the heat I've been sewing. Oh for the joy! :-
This is the new quilt which I've started....
...and it's growing.
I have this layer cake of Barbara Brackman blues, courtesy of Moda. The first person to email me, will receive the fabric. I have a little story to share, a patter Ben Behuin, spoke to us at a retreat. "He said, I've heard about jelly rolls and layer cakes. and I'm concerned that you ladies will have fat quarters!"
While at the retreat at Spring Green, we stayed at the Spring Green Motel. It has been refurbished at it was clean and comfortable. It is located on the edge of the little town, and their flowers were absolutely beautiful. We stayed here because the retreat center located above the shop was already occupied.
A gazebo to hang out and visit.
A perfect place to have breakfast.
The classy chicken coop....
.....there were several chickens and a duck.
Mr. Rooster woke us in the morning with his cock-a-doodle-do.
There was also a beautiful garden free of weeds.
Flowers outside the Gathering Room where a light breakfast was offered. We had fabulous home cooked breakfast's offered to us at the retreat.
Mr. Tin Man residing over the garden.
I find time to read every day, and I have a new inspiration from the series I am reading..."Decide not to let life happen to you. Go out and make life happen......live life fully."
