Quilting Retreat & Thread Painted Firemen Sneek Peek
Last weekend I spent time making a donation quilt at our quilt club's retreat. It was a relaxing, noisy, and great time with friends.
My friend, Jo Ann, had been wonderful in letting us use her basement--Thank You!
Yes--that is me in the picture below :)
Here are some of the finished quilts that have been made by our quilt members.
Guess who was at the retreat! My blogging friend, Sandi, from Sew in Peace!
I'm working on a new project. The photographer from my local newspaper had taken a neat picture of the firemen that were fighting the fire and he has given me permission to thread paint his picture!
Here is a sneak peek!
I received a few personal cake decorating tools that I used at the bakery and to my surprise my books actually were in good condition.
One book had gotten a little damp and smoky, but I let it air out for about two weeks and dry ironed the pages. It will be ready to be used again. I would like to thank Steve and Debbie for their thoughtfulness in salvaging my personal tools. This has been a really rough time for them and for them to think of me and my coworker's personal items was really thoughtful.
I miss my bakery family which also includes more customers than I can count.
If I have an errand in town, people are always stopping me asking when the bakery will reopen. The outpouring of concern and love has been overwhelming!
