I am Still Here

So its been a busy month...I have been on two Quilting Retreats....excellent time at both!!  Two different groups of ladies and two very different locations.  The first was held in a Lodge over looking the Bow River, the view was beautiful.  The second was in the town of Banff Alberta, another beautiful location with the mountains in the background.  I could go on one retreat a month, if it was possible!

This is three of the gals on the first retreat (I forgot to take pics at the second one!)

This is the view of the Bow River.  Its really low right now in this area.

This is my friend Kate and her first quilt!! Doesn't she look proud?  My friend Cheryl gave her the fabric and I cut it all up for her, so all she had to do was sew!! She actually came to get some Scrapbooking done, but I think we got her hooked on Quilting...heehee!

I have been busy working away on the lastest Bonnie Hunter Mystery Quilt, Orca Bay.  She is on step three, and in her usual fashion, there are many small pieces in each step!  Sooooo...I haven't actually finished one step completly but I do have some of each done......

I have decided to use brown instead of black in my quilt.  I have enough brown to do this 10 times over!!  Hopefully this will make a small dent in the stash.

This is what it looks like outside right now, (we have a winter storm watch in our area) so my plan is to sew the day away and get caught up on Orca Bay... or at least finish up with one of the steps!

Happy Stitching,
