I have just had the most delightful few days with other Statler owners from Thursday until Monday at The Sanctuary. We all achieved a lot, talked and laughed a lot, ate often, and had a few lightbulb moments, and made new, or renewed old friendships.Was great to talk with others who “talk” the same language.
I worked on my New York Beauty top, commenced in a class with Lessa Siegele. This is how I have joined the blocks, and thought I was finished, but what do you think, does it need a border of some sort??? The colours in this photo look a bit washed out, in reality it is much brighter. Opinions please.
This is Gayle, working on a project that she thought she might have finished this weekend, but no, took longer than she thought. Looking forward to the finished product, I think there is a November deadline?
And these blocks belong to Di, a hand pieced project, one of Lucy Boston’s, Patchwork of the Crosses.
Above, the obligatory group photo for the photo collection.
And another PHD I was working on, do you recognise this Michele??
Watching a DVD on the screen.
We were fortunate to have Naomi, who designs patterns, and here she is concentrating on creating a pattern for me for a quilt that I needed help with. She came up with some great ideas, so keep a look out for her new website which is coming soon.
And Libby had a “light bulb” moment working on SAM, and is putting it to use.
And below the Aussie Statler Sibling badge that Libby had, and I remembered that “somewhere” I had one too. A search found it, but too late to wear it for the weekend.
Well, the washing is almost done, The Sanctuary has been tidied, and its time to get back to quilting again. My apologies for lack of blog postings, it seems to be either nothing for days, or a few often, and once again, there is a build up of quilt photos to show, so will be back soon.
