Weekend Review

I'm back!  I was gone for five days.  2 days were travel, 2 were teaching, and one was for recovery.  lol  It was FUN.  It was a lot of work but I met so many terrific people.  Everyone was so creative and so kind.  The weekend workshop was put on by the fantastic Shirley of Shirley's Sewing Room in Moosomin, SK.  Here she is threadpainting her chickadee.


She is always smiling!  There were 23 people in this room.  Can you believe that!?  I have never taught a group this big.  Many of the women were from Manitoba.


The first day was Threadpainting - from 10 to 4.  This was perfect.  There was lots of practice time, and nearly everyone completed the project.  We had lunch catered which was wonderful - gluten free and all!  The first night, many of us went out to a restaurant for supper.  Shirley opened her store just for us afterwards for some shopping sales!  ; )  The second day was Creative Quilted Postcards. The theme for the morning was, "What I'm Thankful For".  It was really great to see the results.  We all shared what it was we were thankful for during the show and tell, which was really nice!  :)


Unfortunately, my group card photos really didn't turn out.  Poo.  We had over three dozen postcards by the end of the day.  It was an incredible collection!  Here are a couple that came out well.  They are from the afternoon challenge.

'What's In My Jar?'

Isn't that beautiful!?  I love how it feels like I'm looking through etched glass.  This next one was a great way to use the project from the day before:


Thank you everyone! You were all so amazing!  And thank you to Shirley and her wonderful staff.

22 people + me.

I was lucky enough to be put up in a hotel room overlooking fields.  This was what I enjoyed the morning that I left Moosomin.  Aaaaah....  PERFECT!

Good morning!  Sun up in Moosomin, SK.  Click photo to view larger...
