I spent last week with eighty wonderful quilters. And it was fun, relaxing, invigorating and wonderful!
And I don't have to make my bed or cook my meals. Everything is done for me. For four glorious days, I can just sew. When I get sore from all of the sewing, I can have a massage to soothe my aching muscles. So that I can sew some more. It is fabulous!
Tanglewood Resort and Conference Center is on the shores of Lake Texoma, on the Oklahoma/Texas border. Our room had a lovely view of the lake.
My roommate Rhonda and I arrived on Sunday afternoon. And started setting up our sewing stations. To my horror, I found that I had for some unknown (forgotten) reason removed the foot and shank of my Janome gem machine. It was nowhere to be found. Rats! I couldn't sew! And I was a two hour drive from home.
Rhonda kindly let me use her machine on Sunday evening. She was cutting out a project. So I was able to sew a bit. But that wasn't a long-term solution.
Luckily there was a Walmart nearby. I was able to buy a small new Brother on Monday. And, bonus, it was blue:
But mostly, I sewed. I finished two quilt tops. The first was black and white. And composed almost entirely of Maria Shell's polka dot units. Here it is in progress:

I was going to make another black and white quilt, but decided I needed some color. So I started a log cabin. The centers are navy blue or black and red violet:
