Calling All Roosters!!!

Hello from the Red Rooster in sunny Cullman, Alabama! I sure do wish you were all here with us.... we're having such a fun time!!! Can you tell?

We are being spoiled rotten....

Breakfast was absolutely yummy!!! But dinner was pretty good too :*)

Last night we had creme brûlée for dessert - YUM!!!!

A few of us had to sit and relax afterwards :*)

Here are a few of the projects we are working on... Lynn is making pillow cases for her grandsons...

and a Twisted Bargello wall quilt ...

Mary is making a t-shirt quilt for a cousin...

Joanne is thrilled that she got her June Calendar Quilt done before me =^..^=

Betty brought kits to make four Sewn-in-Love quilts for cancer patients...

Michelle is making everyone jealous with her scruptious fabrics... (Shhhh... I am definitely stealing this one when she goes to bed tonight :*)

Carole finished up this gorgeous 3D cardinal wall hanging...

And I'm working on a UFO from last year - Girls Just Wanna Have Fun ....

These are the two blocks. Churn Dash Star...

and an Alternate Chain block...

I am working on this project while here because it is straight, pretty mindless sewing. I really would love to see some results from this retreat. I'll get back to something more intense when I get home :*)

I'm making this quilt out of 30's fabrics. I had NONE of these in my stash - not with my love for saturated colors and batiks, right? But my friend Joanne had 2 baskets full of scraps from her Dear Jane and she handed them to me and said use whatever you want. Wow - I did!!! I am having such fun playing with all these sweet little fabrics :*)

Hugs & Blessings!

  1. This looks like so much fun! Enjoy!

  2. Oh, I remember this place from other photos. Looks way too fun!
    I hardly have any 30s fabrics, either. Very good of your friend to provide her "scraps."

  3. Boy oh Boy oh Boy -- what delicious food you are being served. You were right - you are being spoiled rotten; AND having too much fun to boot!! Lucky you. Your 30's quilt is coming together nicely. I still have some of those prints too if you need more when you get home, let me know.

    Thanks for sharing the pictures. Looks like a WONDERFUL place for a retreat.

  4. Oh my goodness ... what quilty fun you are having!!! And such beautiful work going on around you, too! Have a blast, my sweet friend!!! :)

  5. Looks like great fun! I know you are on the way home now and I am covering you with prayer! Looking forward to hearing all about your retreat!

  6. Looks like a wonderful time and just love your UFO, pretty colors!

  7. Looks like you had a great time and received some serious "spoiling" as well. What fun!!
