Sewing Retreat

My Clothing and Textile Advisors had a sewing retreat this past week-end. 22 of us gathered at Camp Huston, owned and operated by the Episcopal Diocese. It was a great time of visiting, sewing and delicious meals, I didn't have to prepare. :-) The camp sits in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains and outside the dining hall are spectacular vistas of the mountain tops around, including some new snow on Sunday morning. There were the requisite quilts and table runners, but also sewing of everything from new panties to umbrellas.

I achieved my goal of completing all the machine work for the unfinished Christmas projects left from last year. They may be coming to you, so I can only show you the one for the grandkids,

This is a sweet panel and border fabric I bought over a year ago in Ft. Langley, BC. Always helping the local economy!

While my sweet grandson was in the hospital, his mom brought his pillow from home and he had the Halloween pillowcase I had made. Folks notice what you make, so be sure to keep producing. :-)
