A few adjectives to describe the retreat with Amanda Jean last weekend are:
I made so many mistakes with these potholders! I couldn't get the lattice to line up, my binding isn't full, the place where the binding comes together is a mess.... In lieu of all this, I feel inspired to work on a few details with my quilting that will improve the quality of my finished pieces of artwork!
- crazy fun
Everyone brought scraps to exchange and we sat and looked through every single scrap for hours, just to make sure we didn't miss anything. I have to say, sitting in a huge pile of scraps and just throwing them around is my kind of fun!
- fattening, but worth every morsel
- filled with relationship
Michelle, Tara, and Amanda Jean
Kate, who won Amanda Jean's quilt
And last but not least, my partner in crime, Jane.
To Amanda Jean and Tara, thank-you, thank-you, thank-you!! You two are truly a dynamic duo! Tara has amazing hostessing skills and Amanda Jean is filled with inspiration and information.
To "the gang", you are an amazing group of ladies with fabulous skills! It was a pleasure spending the weekend with you all!!
