Fall is here and with it a trip to our little lake in the Poconos with my quilting friends.
The ride up was gorgeous.
It is a little past peak foliage season, but it is still a sight to behold.
|I never used to like orange, but Fall has changed my mind.|
|Our dock, where we often eat meals. But it was too chilly this time.|
|This is what we get to look at when we are sewing.|
|I also love the color of pumpkins.|
Fall is definitely my favorite color pallette.
We eat a lot, talk a lot and sew a lot. So far, I have finished my quilt top from Bonnie Hunter's workshop, made 9 Chanukah themed ConKerr Cancer pillowcases, made 4 sets of polar fleece hats and scarves for my guild donation next month and finished my WW block.
I'll share photos in my next post.
This year, our friend Jane is home recuperating from thyroid surgery. (We miss you Jane!)
My friend, Angela, who I met at a Pro Chem fabric dyeing class joined us.
I decided for my WW block to celebrate my friends and the Fall weather.
The block was created in layers.
After quilting the background, I added woodsy tree trunks.
For the next layer, I added the tree branch.
The final layer was the leaves. Everyone signed a leaf. I even included a leaf for Jane.
And one leaf for Bailey girl - the little heart one.
A quilting getaway with friends is the best therapy around.
Thanks to Kelly, Sujata, Terry, Christine and Angela.
And of course, Bailey.
