Last week I spent the most enjoyable 5 days with my lovely friends Sandi and Rossie. We drove to the Shuswap area of B.C. and stayed in Sandi's shagedelic (and here I refer to carpeting of the orange and shaggy variety, people!) 70's lake house. I love it there. It was our 2nd annual quilting week together and we've already decided to add an extra day next year!
These photos will give you a little taste of our week together that included a lot of laughs, sewing, antiquing, quilt shop-hopping, some wine & cheese, sunny walks and lock smithing:
Rossie's lovely Featherweight (both she and Sandi are strictly old-school.
I was feeling a little left out with my monster Pfaff Quilt Expression 4.0. I'm working on a Featherweight takeover and expect to be firmly in the club next year)

Happy hour entertainment - Mama & Papa goose with their goslings
Sandi's newest acquisition thanks to her friend & local thrift connection, Merle. The local small towns are full of thrift and antique shops and there always seems to be treasure!
Merle found this one, too!

And you know, I'm always saying this, so it was just a matter of time before someone put it on a sign:
I'll share all of my projects with you over the next few days. I can't spill all the beans at once (it was hard enough coming home, I've gotta stretch all of this fabulousness out!) but I will tell you that I made something from the first edition of Fat Quarterly and it is SPEC-TAC-U-LAR.! In fact, the swim-by of the Canada Geese was all too perfect as I was busy making their namesake in fabric.....
