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

Here we are–Cissy, Suzanne, me, and Jeanelle

Suzanne in the pink chair that was to be Sherry’s for hand-sewing. We had tea in the afternoon in tiny demitasse cups.

This was my cup–behind is a spice cake baked in a jar.

Fritzi loved Bullwinkle so much we had to hide him from Fritzi’s view. Fortunately as a long haired dachshund, he could not see things in the middle of tables but he could see him perched on top of the door.

All cleaned up with our cars all loaded up for a trip home in the rain, drizzle, and icy rain.
