The Trinity Valley Retreat is held at a hotel and spa on Lake Texoma. It's a lovely place, and very quiet in January. We had a beautiful view out of our bedroom window:
Since it is still January, I had taken a pile of blue fabrics with me. My first task was to finish the third bouquet quilt:
|Blue Bouquet #3, 26" x 38"|
|Subdivisions 17, 23" x 33"|
My fellow retreaters decided that the largest circle looked like a big eye, so they embellished it for me while I was out getting a massage:
|The "Eye of Sauron", a collaborative effort|
For the record, I removed the eye-lashes. I don't like my quilts to stare back at me.
I noticed as I made the second improvisational piece that each successive quilt seems to lean more towards the turquoise end of the blue spectrum. I am very fond of turquoise.

I spent the last two days of the retreat working on a new Tuning Fork. Riffing off Mondrian.
