Inspiration for my sewing girls

Well this was super easy from Willow Bend Creations.  I think I can print this right onto my steam a seam....I traced this one onto it and then ironed it onto my batik fabric and cut it out......Im hoping the girls might think they would like to try something like this...You don't have to stitch it down if you dont want to. I think next time I'll hand applique it onto my background fabric after I iron it on.  The people at Willow Bend Creations were really nice to deal with. Give it a try, they have all different kinds, western, fairies, mountains, fishing, you name it.

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving

The sewing girls created these Turkey Crayon Holders
this week.  Aren't they adorable? You can get the pattern from here. They were quite easy and the girls were so happy to get to coloring.

 We had Pudding cups that day to gobble. 

 I wish I could be at all the girls' Thanksgiving tables to color and eat with them. Being with the ones we love and giving thanks to the Lord for all of our Blessings is the best!

My first Quilter's Retreat!

I worked on my Circles of Life quilt at my first Quilter's Retreat! I didnt get it done but I learned so much....I heard about 505 spray to baste my quilt, and I watched my friend glue baste her quilt with Elmer's glue! Visit Sara at Sarasquiltingcorner,  her free motion quilting is done on her domestic machine and it is beautiful.


I saw Jelly Roll Race 2 quilts being made too. They were just darling.

We saw the quilt that would teach us about the Elenor burns flying geese ruler.

And there was lots of food to be had.

I was surrounded by the Best people, they welcomed me with open arms, and still wanted to be my friend even after 3 constant days of listening to my sighing, because I must hold my breath when I quilt.  Busting out in song when a phrase reminded  me of the song It's all about that Bass, all about that Bass.  I was also known to be seen draped over my machine in exhaustion.  We had a blast!

There was so much more beauty being created that I didn't get pictures of, but they were certainly a part of making wonderful memories for me that I will never forget!
