Have you every spent 4.5 days at a quilting retreat with your small group of super good friends?  What fun we had.  We rented a house at Tahoe from Monday to Friday – there were 11 of us with sewing machines and all the stuff that goes with quilters.  Caravan of 4  SUV’s and a truck with tables, chairs, lights ironing board and good food.  Excellent views of the lake and mountains, lots of laughing, cocktail time, good walks on the mountain and the shoreline, exchanged tips, quilt shop support mode etc.

Many UFO’s were finished and one UFO started for another time.  Try it – you’ll love it.  All came home relaxed and ready to begin more UFO’s for next year.

I did hand work to finish several pieces for an upcoming September show and did a big shirt for a class I’m teaching and almost finished a coat.

I  belong to an 8 part harmony group and part of a women’s quartet and I purchased a Digital Voice Recorder this year.  With this new recorder you can upload your practice music to the computer and then to a CD (still working on the CD) but as I was working on my music in front of the computer I clicked “whats playing” instead of the library and what a surprise I had.  The music and vocal were making wonderful patterns and colors on the screen – got out the camera and started taking pictures.  This is what I got.

It was so fun to watch the patterns as I was working on the words.
