A FUN WEEKEND

Robin and I had our own private sewing retreat.  Well, we were also on a fact-finding mission to check out new retreat locations.  But, more on that at another time.  Nonetheless, we did accomplish a few things and had a great time in Palm Desert, California.  What, you say?  Palm Desert in August?  Quilting is an air-conditioned indoor sport.  And, by the time dinner rolls around, it is pretty nice.

Both of us made two of Robin's newest pattern:  Easy Peasy.  And, by the way, it is Easy Peasy.  The one on the left is Robin's; mine is on the right.  I also managed to get this cute quilt top done. Another one to put on the "need to quilt" pile.


We also took in the movie The Help.  Wonderful movie.
I hope you had a fun weekend. 

Quilt happy,
Marilyn
