A peak at the Retreat Sample!

Howdy friends!
    I thought I would show you the project I'm working on for our Woolen Willow Spring Quilt/Rughooking Retreat! The spots are filling up, with people from all over the country! It's pretty exciting! Usually we just have a small retreat, because we never advertised except for in our newsletter. My sister, Sally, has really been doing a great job getting it out there! She pushes me and Gretchen to get things done! I used to say, when I was little,  "you're not the boss of me!" But I guess she does a good job at it! Ha ha!

I'm not sure how I'll finish it yet. It might be a pillow, or a small wool quilt, or just a penny rug! I have to keep in mind that the kit price won't allow for it to be much bigger though! Funny how I do things backwards, came up with the price, then made the project! Oh well!  I may hook a special rug for the retreat also, since there will be rughookers coming!  Oh Happy Day in the sewing room! 
Last night I designed some fun fabric on! That was really fun! Of course, I had to pay high shipping, because I can't wait to get it in my hands! Sheesh, that stuff is expensive! I hope it turns out pretty! I'll show you when I get it!
My daughter, Kristen is here today doing her laundry, and found some pretty fabric I got her. So she is making a baby quilt for a friends little girl! Here she is....
Fun fabric is from Riley Blake, with chandeliers, lamps, and flowers! I think it will make a little girl very happy!
Well, I hope you all are having fun in your sewing rooms too!


  1. Beautiful flower design, I like the idea of doing flower designs for the spring. It is wonderful that your daughter likes to quilt. I love the idea of doing fabric ourselves, but it is pricey.


    1. Thank you, Debbie! I love flowers! The spoon flower fabric is pricey, but it will be fun to see how it comes out, and I guess, since I do get to get my fabric wholesale at the shop, I shouldn't complain to pay more than normal retail for something fun! Haha! My Daughter, had fun today, and just about finished her quilt! Hope she gets it all done and quilted!

  2. Hey Jen! It's about TIME you worked on that retreat project! hee hee hee!!! It turned out beautiful, and I can't wait to you actually get it all finished and I can upload a finished photo on the retreat website! :)
    I love you!

  3. I'm so glad I found out about the retreat! This will be my first one ever and I'm so very excited!!!
