Sewing/Sister Time

I've been away from the blog and most of my electronic devices for a few days now, as I am enjoying our annual "Sister Time." I do want to drop in and post a couple of pictures of what's happening.

There's a lot of laughing, sewing, eating, and reminiscing going on and it's been wonderful. Lots of projects are being completed, many of which were UFOs and that is pretty darn awesome. There's also a lot of learning and practicing of new techniques, which means there is also a lot of collaboration and opinion-giving taking place. It's fun to watch and be a part of that.  

 Paula is learning to do the actual quilting!

Pat has been very busy, as usual.

bag projects, homemade bags, clutch purse, pouches

Terri has already made a big bag and is now working on making bowl cozies.

Barb made a bunch of cozies and a dress for one of her granddaughters. At least one more dress will be made, as well as a couple of other projects. Barb and Terri are deep in conversation about some fabric choices.

Kathie finished up a quilt top that she started last year, but I did not get a picture of that. Oops! She is now working on her first rug. Isn't this going to be fun?

Jelly Roll Rug

I've finished a quilt top and a wall hanging, but have not taken a picture yet. I did make one oval rug and am working on a rectangular one now. Don't you love this teal confetti ombre fabric? I used yardage instead of a variety of fabrics.

Annie has been busy making carrot table runners that are so darn cute (again, no picture yet), as well as helping Paula with her projects. Her machine has been busy, but took a well-deserved break last night.  She's got things organized and ready to start working again whenever she decides to sit and sew. She's always so organized and I admire that! I really need to learn from her. :-)

I love how the back room looks at night when our machines are all set up and ready for us to work.

The sewing room, kitchen, and one bathroom is always illuminated.

We took advantage of the beautiful night Thursday and had a bonfire.

I love our time together!

It sounds like a great time. I love the teal rug, and I hope the rest of the time is just as fun and productive.
