A Quilt Retreat

Although I sew at home nearly every day, it is nice to get away and sew in a different place. In January, I had the opportunity to go with my best sewing friends to Canmore, Alberta and spend a few days sewing with them in a beautiful mountain location.
This was the view outside our window. 

We set up 3 sewing machines on the dining room table.

and sewed. . .

 and painted fabric with Shiva paintsticks. . .

 and did sashiko and hand applique. . .

 and pieced tiny pieces together into beautiful designs! (These strips are just 1/2" wide!)

Getting together with friends is always great time spent and when you share a love of something, be it quilting or something else, it just makes that friendship even more special! I'm already looking forward to next year's get away!
