Treetop Studio in Lufkin with Holus Bolus
After a wonderful weekend with the Holus Bolus Group–missing one person due to illness—I am home and unpacking. I always take too much stuff never knowing what I might feel like doing. Undone is the Judy Niemeyer paper pieced project, string piecing on paper (Medicare benefit booklet of husband–he gets a new one every year), weaving on my new tiny hand loom, and a new Psalm interpretation.
Completed though are two sample Bricks and Stepping Stones adapted from Bonnie Hunter’s version using 2 inch squares and 3.5 inch bricks into 2.5 inch strips and 4.5 inch bricks–making for fewer blocks. I’ll photo them when they are quilted and bound.
Also completed is a surprise–not quilted yet so I’ll just include the beginning piece.
And some 9 patches, and half of my stack of chevrons used as leader/enders—-and some crumb blocks with quite a few pinned and ready for sewing.
We had a grand time and Jeanelle is the most extraordinary hostess with treat baskets and wonderful sleeping accommodations. Her new studio–well-deserved–is wonderful and so organized. The other three made necklace/scarfs from t-shirt knit fabrics and sewed up some loose fitting tops Jeanelle made from a commercially made top she liked. Now I need to go to Treasure House and find some T-shirts to cut up.
Here we all are. Cissy, Suzanne, me, and Jeanelle
This was my cup–behind is a spice cake baked in a jar.
