I started this quilt last fall and finished it today! I actually did all the embroideries by hand in less than a month last year. The images are crayon tinted before being embroidered, which made it so much fun to work on! If I have time his week, I will quilt and bind it so that it's totally done and can be used at the beginning of fall next year.

This weekend I made a few Thanksgiving pillows out of embroideries I did last weekend.

A month ago was our yearly quilt retreat upstate in Windham, NY! It was a spectacular weekend of great food, quilting and relaxing, which we all need at least once a year, right? If you are looking for the best place to have a quilting (or scrap booking, or knitting...you name it) retreat with friends, I think you should go to Rosa Mountain House. Pat is the most gracious host I have ever known and she makes sure your weekend is everything you hoped for. Follow this link to get to her website:http://www.rosamountainhouse.com/
I have used the pictures she sent us to show you how gorgeous it is. The two quilts are two of the three I worked on that weekend.
I quilted this once I got home. Just need a binding for it now.
Of course we already booked next year's retreat! I think I will finish my Christmas quilts there next year since the past two years I worked on Halloween quilts. It's great to get so much done in three days.
