I have managed to write 100 posts ! This means a celebration of course, so there will be a small giveaway. Leave me a comment telling me what you like about this blog and in a few days I will randomly select numbers. I will post later about the giveaways, but one of them will be the Chintz Applique book produced by the International Quilt Study Center. Kaum zu glauben, dass ich nun 100 mal auf diesem Blog irgendwas zu erzaehlen hatte ! Grund genug fuer ein kleines Geschenk, lasst ein Kommentar ueber diesen Blog in den naechsten paar Tagen und ich werde dann Nummern ziehen. Schreibe nachher mehr ueber die kleinen Geschenke, aber eins davon ist das Buch Chintz Applique.
Over the last few weeks I have been really busy, so I didn't write anything about the PQ retreat. I took my camera, but was so absorbed that I forgot to take any pictures !! I did get some things done though, an old project finished (well, the top anyway !) and a good start on a new one:
Progress was made on a new quilt:
Home on the Plains
As always at the retreat, we had an enjoyable, busy and happy time away from our usual cares. We have been doing this a long time now, about 12 years I think, and I always look forward to it.
Yesterday, I was invited by Hidden Stitches, an applique group in Largo, to teach beginners' boutis. It was a large group of ladies, about half of which were from PQs. It was a pleasure teaching them, and I hope a few will be "converted" into passionate boutisseuses. We will see ! I almost forgot to take pictures, so here are a couple at the end of class:
Also a few weeks ago, my dear friend
Lou had a birthday. As usual, I was horribly late in finishing what I had planned for her, so she received a late birthday gift. I sent her an applique book I thought she would enjoy, as well as this small quilt:
