Doesn't this look peaceful?

The perfect place to start my summer!
|Looking up at the cottage from the lake.|
With great friends, food, drinks, music...
and of course our sewing machines!

I had a wonderful weekend with my quilty friends. We worked on many projects and some were even finished!
We sometimes have a theme for our retreats just to make the party a little more interesting. This time around it was 50s & 60s. We had delicious hamburgers and milkshakes for supper Saturday night.
Elvis was definitely with us on this retreat!
Here are some of the projects we worked on:
|My mom's scrap quilt.|
|A Tote Bag Pat made for her friend.|
|Pat's Granny Squares|
|I started a Log Cabin Quilt for my 4 year old.|
|Cheryl worked on this quilt for her sister.|
|These are Dale's friendship blocks. Each of us made one of those blocks.|
|My mom's tumblers.|
|Pat made these Tote Bags for a Fundraising event.|
|Dale assembled the top of this gorgeous Christmas Quilt.|
|My mom pieced her hand embroidered snowmen blocks.|
|I made this little wallhanging from start to finish, in 2 days!|
We were so efficient with our sewing that the days just flew by and we couldn't believe how much work actually got done!
Thank you Royal Cottage Quilters for a perfect start to my summer and to Pat and Victor for the use of their beautiful summer retreat!
