A warm Hoosier Welcome

It has been a while since this Hoosier gal has posted anything. Am trying to get back in the groove . Will be posted sewing, decorating and crafting tips. I like frugality, using what you have in your present stash.

Well another fantastic Quilt Retreat has come and gone. I am posting numerous photos from the 3 story lodge where it was held. Just a beautiful setting, but , was disappointed that the trees were not in full color as in the past years. Some said the extra rain this fall and fast cool down brought this about. The view was still wonderful. Being on the lake brought about many surprise visits from different fowls. One day we had a lonnggggg....and I mean very long straight line of white ducks just sitting in a row. Just like the old adage...get your ducks in a row. Couldn't begin to count them all. They stayed this way forever! Then eventually they broke up.
The one photo shows a stone with the word Waubee!. The lake is Waubee.

The first photo is of Deb, with the green sewing machine, that made the neatest (and I know it sounds strange) quilt from her sons boxer shorts. And I add as she stated "they are all clean." LOL

The next closeup in third pix is of Marilyn that does such lovely work and my can she crank out the quilts. Wish I could move as fast as her.

The other photos show some of the other ladies. We had 45 attend this Quilt Retreat. So much fun and fellow shiping.

Hope you enjoyed the photos.
Now is the time of year to begin cocooning. So start your sewing, painting or whatever projects.

Can you believe it is October....and I am just now getting another post to my blog.
Gracious......where does the time fly to? Seems to be my mantra anymore.
As you can see by a couple photos of items listed in my Etsy shop, the Harvest items are accumulating.
Please check out our OFG Old Farmhouse Gathering Art Group on Etsy. Just type in OFG in the search bar.
We have many wonderful artists offering fantastic items for your Harvest Decorating.

Also in the air for me is my soon to be Quilt Retreat at a neat camp in Northern Indiana. Just can't wait. Will be lots of great food, fun and fellowship..and of course the all night and all day sewing! Will post some pixs when I return.

Hope all of you are enjoying the cooler temps. I know I am. Our trees here in Indiana are turning. Some are so pretty...better than last year.

Well, I am off to my studio to sew and get some things organized.
