An Interesting Few Days
Over this past week-end, our church's annual womens' retreat, challenged and inspired 100 women. Our speaker was Jan Phillips, a very interesting woman from California. I'm not sure I can give you a succinct summary of our discussions. We sang, heard poetry, wrote our own poetry/prose and spent time considering how to be creative and use that creativity to help solve issues in our lives. And as the women of the church, how to 'hold' other women in their challenges. It was a refreshing and uplifting time. We were at the church's summer camp.
I have also managed to get a couple of projects moved along. As I'm pretty sure she doesn't read my blog, this is what I made for my Winter exchange. I suppose it could go on a table top or I have put a hanging sleeve on the back. It is about 22 inches square.
This is a pattern I saw last year on the Westfallenstoffe website. I believe it says (altho it is in German) that this is from EQ. I bought the fabric when I was in Germany last March visiting with Caroline. And then I ran out of the solid green and she had to get me some more. [Note to Self: no more patterns in a language that you do not know using metric measurements! Yikes]
Here's the start of the log cabin stars lap quilt. Each of those large squares is approx. 22 inches square. There will be a total of 9 large squares plus borders.
I think that's all the news from around here. How are things with you?
