Retreat Projects Roundup

I'm not surprised that the holidays are now upon us, but I didn't expect to be so busy. Other than working with my 5th graders, I've not sewn a single stitch since my retreat almost 2 weeks ago. Luckily, most of my holiday sewing is done.

As promised in my previous post, I wanted to share some of the projects that I made or finished while on retreat. The biggest one is my Stash Bee quilt top.


I've been hoping to take a better photo of it but every time I try it's either been too windy, too dark, or too rainy so this photo from my phone when I was on the retreat will have to do. Once I start quilting it, I'm sure I'll be taking plenty!

The other projects I made include my Stash Bee November blocks --


-- and a cute little cathedral window pincushion.


I also made another basket that will be a holiday gift for my parents.


I don't anticipate getting any sewing done next week which is okay. Time spent with my extended family is few and far between and I plan to make the most of it. I hope all of you have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday too!

  6. Hi Dianna: Like Yvonne I love how happy you look in the photo. Your stash bee quilt is so beautiful. All the different fabrics from the Bee members give it a real liveliness and yet fit together so well.
