Sweet Retreat!

 

I am trying to play catch up here with the Kennel Girls blog.  Tomorrow we will hold our Nov. meeting.

I thought I had better get my fanny in gear and post about our retreat we went on in September.

Only six of us gals were able to go, but we sure didn’t lack for fun!

We sewed till all hours of the night. . .

Ate yummy food. . .   So good that someone was caught licking her plate.  Who could blame you Sue, Jill’s stuffed French toast was delicious!

Banana splits and bean dip now doesn’t that sound tasty?

By the end we had created  fun new projects.   Some were complete, others very close.

Lynda’s flower and ladybug topper turned out so darling.  Little bugs need a bit more embellishing.

Some projects were tedious, while others quick and easy.  Sue made this woodsy door draft pillow and Jill Carroll made these sweet pillow cases for new grand daughters.

I think Joylyn is hiding behind this fun Halloween quilt.

Janns  (yes, that would be me) sunflower quilt was fun, quick, and easy.  It’s nice to have a project like this every now and then.

This turkey Sue was working on was dimensional.  Hers was so much cuter than the picture on the pattern.

Right about now, my camera started acting up.  Don’t know what I had done, but all of the pictures are blurry.  Promise it wasn’t me , I had to have hit something.  No matter how hard I tried I could not get it to work.

I am going to post them anyway so you can see what  other fun projects were being tackled.

Jill Walker made this darling topper called ‘Dominos’.  Don’t you love the fabrics?

Lynda made this ‘Turning 20”.  I love the color combo.  Thank goodness we will have better pics when they show them completed at guild meeting.

The color in this quilt Jill C. made are all the latest fad.

Here are some blocks that Joylyn was working on.  These turtles are so fun!  won’t they make a wonderful quilt for a boy?

Stars are always ‘STARS’ if you ask me.  I love any kind of star!

I had a jelly roll that I  had gotten as an exchange gift.  I started this but ran out of white fabric.  Bought more when I got home and have made more blocks.  Hopefully I will get in the mood to sew it together.

Joylyn gave each of us this sweet panel.

We were nestled up in the mountains just outside of Fairview.  I didn’t take my camera when we went for walks, but I did get a few pictures of some of the antique quilts on the beds.

Again, blurry!  UGH!!!

We had such a fun time!  Before we had left we were already anticipating plans to return in February.

  1. Per your photos, it looks like you had a lot of fun. Quilting friends are the best!! You do a great job with both your photography and write-ups.

    I think the Kennel girls are so-oooo special. It's so much fun to belong to your group.

  3. You are a star even with some blurry pictures. Just looking at the pictures of the retreat stirs some great memories. I love the Dog Kennel Quilt Guild. Can't wait till next Tuesday for our luncheon.
