puppies and progress

ahhhh... and, i'm back.

Photobucket
probably the LAST time i will be able to HOLD her for a photo!

my weekend in the snowy woods was heavenly.

even though we were set up like a little sewing sweatshop (saturday we sat at our machines from 7:30am nearly straight through until 8pm, and went back to it after dinner...) we all loved every minute of it.

of course, the crafting was broken up with insane amounts of carbs to keep us going (fresh baked cinnamon bread, scones, baquette with brie, fresh pappardelle)... didn't i say heaven?

and the amount of work we all completed was truly amazing. i managed to pump out an entire quilt top (using my fat quarter set from heather ross' far far away collection) and a baby-to-be gift.

the crafting crew... with our completed projects

i brought nellie along to play with amanda's two labbies- wise strider and the new little bimbo, sage. the dogs were beyond adorable together and the little girls gave strider some much needed time off from puppy play!

penelope and sage... all tuckered out

we loved it when they all zonked out together... small, medium and large all snuggled by the wood stove.
too. sweet.

thank you ladies for a wonderful weekend... hopefully we can put one of these together once a season!

SO much fun :) I did more of my tapestry last night and will get back to my knitting once I'm finished - have to go to the quilt store sometime this week and find a backing for my storm at sea. The projects are never done are they??!!
