Kaye England Visits Bear Patch

What a wonderful time we had with Kaye. She made us laugh, she showed her beautiful quilts, and she helped us learn smart piecing techniques. I love that a portion of the sales of her rulers goes to Susan G. Komen research. Thanks Kaye!

More Retreat Photos

I just had to publish a few more photos!

Retreat Fun

We had such a great time at our fall retreat! How could the time go by so quickly? There was lots of laughter- it's a wonder how all those many projects were completed! I tried out a few new recipes for breakfast and dessert and made some old favorites for dinner. Nancy and Leisl's soups were yummy. Sandy and Deb made the oh-so-good cucumber sandwiches in the afternoon to keep our energy levels up. Lots of mini lessons on things we forgot (or never knew) and some fun projects to make for gifts or to keep for ourselves. I even made 2 table toppers for our Christmas window display at the store and a fantastic bag from Kwik Sew using Free Spirit's laminated fabric. Before we knew it, it was time to pack it all back up. Can't wait until we all get together again in March. I better start trying out new recipes on Bob....
