Retreat P1

I just came back from the Lori Holt
Farm Girl Vintage Retreat
Sponsored by
Thimbles and Threads Quilt Shop.
I had the best time!

There was a trunk show the first night and this is one of my favorites.
The amount of work and effort Lori and Thimbles and Threads did for this retreat was not only amazing but far beyond expectation.

We learned this block and Lori had a quilt already made to show us.
we had so much fun and every day was new surprise.

Kind of a blurry picture but this table runner is so cute!
you will want to make 2.
I hope you are doing the "Farm Girl Friday sew alongs",
So of what we did could go along with that.

This was where I was sewing. 
There were so many cute feather weights, 
I think I might need 1 more in a different color.

This was so much fun to go see old and new sewing friends and attend an amazing retreat!
We all enjoyed every day and Lori did a great job and really put a lot and time and effort into each day.
Come back later for more retreat fun.

The Mallory's

This is new newest addition to our farm.
The Mallory's
Yep I know they should all have their own names but....
I can't tell them apart.

I figure maybe when they are bigger I will be able to then I will 
rethink their names.

They have to stay in the house at night until they are a bit older.

Henry thinks they are pretty interesting, 
he does keep barking  at them. 
I figure they will be friend soon.

Pincushion Fun

I love pincushions! And it seems the little extras 
are what really adds that special touch.
And a cute button and a charm is one of my 
favorite touches.

This one clips right on to the table.

I am ready to use it now!

The center is wool. I really like combining fabric and wool.
Some of my favorite quilt patterns have the combination 
of the two.
Maybe I will just use it as a decoration....
