Wow, The Victorian Stitchery Retreat is Over...

I cannot believe that the retreat is over! I already miss everyone so much. Over the next few day's I will try to post pictures from the retreat and give a recap on all of the wonderful things we did. Betty Pillsbury brought her award winning quilt "Crazy Diamonds", much to my delight, she had incorporated the ribbon that I had given out at the last retreat. I thought it looked stunning! This picture was taken with....gasp....my new camera. I think they look much better than the pictures my old camera took.

We had a catered dinner one night and then there was a show and share time afterwards. Many absolutely stunning crazy quilts were shown. One that captured my attention was a crazy quilt that made for the top her casket! It also incorporated one of the ribbon's I gave out last year. I remembered that she had us all sign it.

Well, that's all for now, I'll keep you in suspense for a couple of days,


  1. These crazies are so beautiful! I keep promising to make one...I have lots of things pulled together for it...but I'm scared! :} Glad you had a great time at your gathering.

  2. Looks beautiful. So missed being with you this year.
    Family obligations with myself and sister required us not to attend. WE both talked that weekend and how we were missing the fun.
    Hopefully next year.
