You know how much I dream of living in Wilmington, NC right? Well, my good friend, Jean invited me to visit with her and some of the girls from the Wilmington (Cape Fear) Chapter of the American Sewing Guild. They were having their spring retreat. It was a most wonderful day with these fun ladies and I took lots of photos to share with you.
So let's hop to some show and tell!
All the blocks had lots and lots of raw edge applique. So much detail in each one.
Here is Penny with her row quilt. I love the pirate flag on the boat.
She also made this contemporary piece and
was working on this butterfly. So pretty!
this great poncho,
this quilt top with fabric that is old game pieces and
and a bag(s). Jean made one of the bags.
This is my good friend, Jean. She has promised to help me learn to sew some clothes and get over my zipper phobia. ;)
I really want to learn to make a shirt like this. It is Alabama Chanin style. I love it. It's made from jersey knit fabric. So soft.
It will have lots of hand stitching in it, which is right up my alley!
Ginny made this pretty tree skirt. Woo hoo for getting ahead for Christmas!
Here Ginny is using it to make a fabric bowl.
I think they are beautiful and give a lot of love and a warm hug where needed.
This bag and the one below are made from pot holders!
Ok, so now about our little llama visitor. Linda is the one who brought him. He made us laugh and laugh and laugh all day long. I was told he kept them up late last night too. So are you wondering how Linda managed to get a llama in the hotel?
Well...HE ISN'T REAL! He is just an app she got for her iphone. Basically, the llama can photo bomb any picture you want.
Like this one where he his drinking out of Jean's class. hee,hee,hee.
A good time was had by all. Especially this little bunny who wants to move to Wilmington.
Michelle, the Bunnies, Sabrina and the Llama too
