Odds and Ends

I have not posted lately as I have had nothing to post.  I have been sewing, but everything is for Christmas Presents and I did not want to post where the recipients could see.

I have gone back to see if there were photos I had that had not been posted so......

This quilt was made for Jeremy (Thimble Towne) for his birthday.  Our friendship group thought it would be totally appropriate.  If you know Jeremy then you know he loves his tennis shoes.
This little wall hanging was a class I took on Cathedral Windows.  This is only the second class I have taken that I finished the top in class.  I was so totally happy how this turned out.  Another technique mastered.  It really was much easier than it looks. 
Have you ever surprised someone?  We hit Greg early for his birthday.  This surprise has been in the mill since the Seven Sisters quilt show at Madonna Inn way back when.  We embarrassed Greg with some material that we girls were laughing about that we purchased at the quilt show.
From there it went to.........

Here is Greg's surprise.  Brenda did the actual sewing to make these boxers.
There is a long story behind these boxers.  I won't tell it here, you will have to ask Greg for the whole long story.  You will get a laugh is all I can say.  Just to funny.  Thanks Greg for letting us make fun of your surprise.

Well it is back to sewing.  Hopefully I will have a bunch to show you soon.

Just about time for a new camera.

Quilt Retreat Los Osos

The following photos are of our retreat in Los Osos.  We spent five wonderful days at the coast.  Well, maybe I should clarify that.  The first two days were really hot.  (in the 90's)  We were not planning on that.  It did cool off the next few days back to normal.

This brings a close to our retreat.  We had such a wonderful time.  We are looking forward to our next retreat in April. 

Thanks for stopping by.  Happy Quilting.
