I'm just back from the Summer 2014 Retreat at Crabapple Hill! The weather was perfect and Meg is a fabulous hostess! This is the 3rd retreat I have attended there. And I think it was my favorite.
Here is the exterior of Meg's workshop-
Here is our group-
Here are some pics of different parts of the room-
Meg and her son cooked for us all weekend. Here is an example of one meal-beef kabobs, couscous, melons and sweet Thai sauce. Absolutely yummy!
And here is dessert-ice cream floats and cookies. Yes, Meg made and decorated the cookies!
Here is the weekend's project. It is one of four parts to a new quilt by Meg. The measuring tape pin cushion and the needlebook were in our project bag-that green polka dot one on the left upper corner.
Here is another project-a velour needlebook. This one is the example. I didn't even start mine.......yet :)
The instructions to this needlebook are in the picture below-
We also made a beaded thread separator. The rectangular charm is from a vintage hankie. We also made a bracelet (also using measuring tape trim) and some counting pins.
Here is the stash I brought home. A new quilt pattern called Deck the Halls. And the thread pack.
Now for some stitching news, I have 3 finishes!
Finish #1- Bearly Tracking in Alaska wool wallhanging. This is the kit I bought in Alaska and it was a gift to DH for his birthday. He hung it in the bedroom.
