They were equally eager to hear about my Washington trip. So lots of catching up happened.
And for that matter, two weeks from now, we'll all be at the annual Glen retreat, at Glen Valley Lodge near Portage. This is an annual getaway for a group of about 18 quilters and knitters who all originally met through a listserv for Wisconsin quilters. That's one long-running listserv--we've been going, in one form or another, since about 1996. Two weeks! Time to start planning and organizing.
But back to Seams. Mumbo Gumbo is still happening.This is a cooperative shared pile of scraps being used as at least three people making Mumbo Gumbos. Diane has completed one already (seen before all the blocks were assembled here) and is launched into her second.
One of my planned projects for the Glen is another Mile-a-Minute, this time in more carefully chosen colors. I suspect I'll have a mess every bit as big as this, and it will be for just ONE quilt.
Betsy is seen here finishing the binding on a small quilt she'll be taking on an upcoming church trip to Juarez, Mexico. She'll be helping to build houses and the quilt will be a welcome addition to some family's bedding.
And Renee is working here on Lodde's Mill, as seen at the Country Sampler in Spring Green. Renee usually takes a pattern, reduces its size by 1/3 to 1/2 and makes it more intricate. This one will be a beauty.Other interesting things were happening at Seams, but this is all the camera caught. As for me, I knit. I showed everyone my Jaywalker, with which I'm getting the teeniest bit disenchanted. More on that once I have my thoughts organized. But I spent the bulk of the evening working away on the Kimono Shawl. Just past halfway on that one.
