My two favorite people to paint with at Capon Springs Art Retreat are Peggy and Chris…the mother-son duo who attend all the retreats and create some terrific art. I look forward to seeing them each time we go to Capon. Peggy does fun paintings each time and Chris always does something different. This time he created some gorgeous landscapes on multiple canvases. I love how their work turns out! Great work guys. Looking forward to seeing and painting with you both again soon.

Not that kind of Strip Poker!!! LOL! Remember a few weeks ago we had our Stitch & Bitch V Retreat? One of the games we played with the group was “Strip Poker” where we played a game using Jelly Roll Strips. I WON 100 jelly roll strips in all colors and prints. So part of the game was to “makes something” and share it. So here it is. I used them along with these Moda pre-printed Farm Animal blocks to make this Quilt as You Go quilt. I love how it turned out. If you look closely you can see that I sewed the strips together and then cut them to use as half square triangles. I love star quilts!

Stitch & Bitch V was the best retreat we have ever had. I don’t know if it was the combination of people, the projects we were working on, the food and games, or just what led to it but this was by far the most fun we have had at a retreat. And we CAN NOT WAIT to do it again. We will on Feb 2-6, 2023. I think most everyone will return but just in case they can’t be sure to let me know if you want to be added to the wait list. We always give the people who were at the last retreat the first right of refusal for the next but if they can’t attend we open it to the wait list. And trust me, you don’t want to miss this!!!!!

I spent a delightful weekend with a group of talented quilters at the “Piecemakers” Retreat in Roxbury, Pennsylvania. I learned so much from them and they were all so generous with their knowledge. While there I worked on a baking themed quilt for Sister, who is a terrific cake and bread maker. She came up from Georgia to stay with Lincoln so I could go to the retreat when my regular sitter had an emergency out of state. As her birthday is in a few weeks and I had planned to make this quilt for her I decided to move it up so that I could give it to her while she was here. She loved it….and so did Paisley, her little Yorkie. I think Sister will have to share it with her. Happy Early Birthday!!!

It’s the quiet before the storm….storm of sewing, that is! The Quilter’s Retreat started yesterday afternoon and while I didn’t get here till early evening I tried to catch up by sewing until 11 pm. And now, as usual, I am the first one up. I just can’t seen to sleep past 5 am. It’s kind of nice in the quiet minutes before all the machines fire up. I can’t wait to see what everyone is doing! More to come.
