This past weekend was spent at a fabulous
quilt retreat at the
Wonderland Conference Center in Sharon
run by the Salvation Army.
It is wonderfully tranquil
and the perfect place for a quilt retreat!
My Favorite room is the sitting room over looking the lake
Just love siting here with a cup of tea working
on a hand stitching project!
The bedrooms are basic
but your not in it for long, so they are fine!
My bed was very comfy!
didn't mind the twin size bed, had the room all to myself
with no hubby or dog snoring!!
I was in heaven!
The kitchen staff provided us fabulous meals at 8am, 12 noon and 6pm
(we were like Pavlov's dogs!)
and in the evening they put out tea and freshly baked cookies!
or fruit, cheese and crackers!!
Just LOVE this retreat!!
I seem to be working on long term hand stitching projects at the moment
and made slow but steady progress on them this past weekend.
Arriving Friday afternoon,
I continued on block #3 of
Ladies of The Sea
Spent Friday afternoon working on Grapes….
Lots of Grapes!
Added them to my wreath...
this was as far as I got by Saturday afternoon
Saturday afternoon I started
working on an embroidered workbox
from this book by Carolyn Pearce
It is just the cutest thing! and TINY!
The whole box is about
6 " x 3"
and has many cute little accessories to go with it!
Not sure I'll get to all of the accessories,
but willing to try and get at least the workbox done…
not sure what decade that will happen!!
This is the front panel,
and I had a good start going into the weekend
added roses into the tree
and flowers to keep the bunny company!
So that was most all of Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning!
This is the quilting room all set up
with everyone busy working on their projects
Here are two of my Quilty Gal Pals
Giuliana and Diana
and YES we are watching a movie while quilting!
This is Giuliana's way too cute turtle quilt
think I'll have to add this one onto my
All in All it was a relaxing delightful weekend,
can not wait for next year!
Maybe next year I'll bring a machine …
or these same hand stitching projects!!!
