last year, amidst mortgage paper work and packing
i took off
to my dear friend amanda's lake house in the woods
relieve some stress
it was just so wonderful
that we decided to make it an annual event...
loaded down with sewing machines, irons and fabric filled boat 'n totes
made it through the snow
to nourish our souls
it was a success...
i arrived friday afternoon
and got right to work on a simple, modern, spontaneous
baby quilt for an old friend's new baby girl
backed in a one piece of this favorite giraffe print
and the babe's name appliqued in felt
saturday morning i was up early
to tackle the mac-daddy
and i did it!
(well, minus the hand-stitched binding)
not bad for a day's work, huh?!
sunday morning we all gathered 'round with our loot
for one last group picture
pretty impressive, i must say!
amanda, i cannot thank you enough for hosting and planning.
ladies, it was wonderful to meet you all!
until next year...
