It's that time again to put my planning into action.
Every year I plan and coordinate a retreat at nearby Bass Lake.
It's called Pine Needles Quilt Camp.
It's a 3 day event in October while the weather is still nice, kind of the time when we have Indian Summer.
A couple of years ago my friend Virginia started helping me with the retreat, which has made it more fun and less of the work part for me! Ok, honestly, the work is fun for me also...
I am looking forward to seeing familiar faces,
sewing projects and a lot of laughter!
Here are a couple of group shots of the girls.
I found it over at Sew 4 Home. I know these fabrics look familiar! I was going to wait to show you this until I had whipped one up out some of my Fig Tree leftover fabrics but I just had to share it now!
I am in need of new pillows- a seriously overlooked part of my decorating.
Have you ever been to Quilting in the Garden? It's at Alden Nursery in Livermore CA.
Last year Joanna of Fig Tree fame was their featured quilter.
This year Sue Nickels will be the featured quilter. It's September 25 & 26
and I am making plans to go there! They have classes too. There will be several amazing celebrities there: Alex Anderson, Denise Sheenan, A Graceful Stitch, Elizabeth of Late Bloomer, Tracy Souza of Plum Cute Designs to name a few! I can't imagine not seeing Pam Kitty Morning there! I'm not sure which will be more exciting to see... all the quilts or all the quilters I admire!
There is a wonderful quilt shop nearby also, In Between Stitches, which is in Quilt Sampler magazine, the Spring issue, right now! Hmmm, more fun there!
