I am home from

Both retreats and learned that two retreats,one immediately after another is just too much.
I am taking a few days before we leave on a week's holiday into BC to take it easy and just
do what I feel like doing.

While at the retreat dear Debbie taught me how to make bowls using clothesline cords. I am
visiting a friend in her new apartment tomorrow and will take her this set as a housewarming gift- a bowl, 3 hot pads and a knitted dish
cloth -- I hope to make a couple more dishcloths tonight for
the set.

I have also made a set for my dil as part of her birthday present.

Once I get back I am going have to get my brain working on my next challenge with the Challenging Ourselves group.

I was so glad to get home -- we had two great retreats though and it was great to reaquaint with a my friends. It was the l0th anniversary of the Western Retreat and the pillow cases
I made for the anniversary with landscapes on them went over very well.

I will be getting back to normal with my blog and the learning fa group once we come back from our little holiday.

Welcome back Shirley! While you were away, I bought a new Janome 6600, so now no excuse for not doing the thread painting. :)

good for you! I hope you enjoy your machine. I sure find that my new Husquvarna Sapphire 870 enables me to do more fine work and I love the latest features on these machines. I bet your Janome 6600 nearly talks! grin. Shirley
