Back From Retreat

Hello sweet friends,
Well, Spring is here and it is a beautiful day here in Texas.
The rain has finally stopped for the time being and the sun is showing it's face and the birds are singing.   Yeah!

Last week I went on a quilting retreat and had a blast.  All the ladies are sew much fun.
I think you have seen my Granny Square quilt several times.  Well, I was so excited I thought I would finish it at this retreat.  Guess what I forgot the corner stones.  Waaaaaa!

I got a little further on my Pam Kitty Love Valentines quilt.  Just have to add a couple boarders.
I also started a little pillow for my great niece Skyler's 1st birthday.  Yes, can you believe she is already going to a year old and her baby sister is due to be here April 14th.  Whoa!!

Hope y'all are enjoying your weekend.

  4. I'm glad you had a good time at your retreat. Love your quilt tops! Yes, it is so nice to see the Winter s.l.o.w.l.y. disappear :)!

  5. Oh that opening deer image is so cute, Donna!
    I always love your quilts. So precious!
    I don't think I'd want to go on a retreat but I have thought about learning to quilt, knit or crochet because there are club/groups for that and I'd love to make some friends here.
    I can't find any rag ball garland or yo yo doll clubs. :)
    i just have to be different, I guess. :)

  6. Glad you had fun. You always help make it fun. Glad you finally finished the Granny Square quilt. It's sew pretty Corner Squares or not.
    Glad you didn't get sick. One more went down. Judy got it late Thursday night.
