Kenosee Retreat Show and Tell


Yeesh... the mud!!

I brought the last pasture of cows home yesterday.



My poor truck and trailer are a mess.

But finished before the wind picked up and the skies looked like this!!


On a cleaner note...

Here is Anne with a couple of her bags.

I love the little pinwheels on the bottom of this one.


Betty with her yellow and blacks...


Colleen W did an amazing job on the stitching of the christmas scenes


Colleen M completed her batiks quilt


Colleen is good at hiding behind her quilts!!

This one is for christmas......


This is Eileen...sporting her new apron...

 otherwise known as the 'guidance councillor' for the Wednesday Girls!!

Marg, Carlin(two of the Wed. Girls) and Eileen

Heather made this great quilt carrier which she entered and won a prize at Sew and Sews this year!


She also completed one of the past year's mysteries.


Irene did a great job regardless of the mistakes in the pattern!!


Lillian...also hiding behind her quilt....

with her scrap apple quilt in my favorite color...

purple!!


Marg with her grand daughter's quilt.

Marg will be running the retreat next year as Colleen is looking to move.


Linda with her card tricks...


Lori showed us how easy it was to make these receiving blankets.

Those cute tootsies belong to Lori!!


Carlin did an amazing job on this spinning stars quilt.


and more stars!!


Shelby 'borrowed' a show and tell

 to show our favorite longarmer, Terry how she would like the quilting on her cottage quilt!

And Shelby...

the cookies are scrumptious and saved the day while hauling cows!!


Shirley finished this quilt she worked on last year at retreat.


Gail, one of the Regina quilters brought this handy row marker booklet.

Using flower head pins, mark the row(A,B,C..) and number(1-10)
on the head of the each pin.


Each 'page' of the booklet has a set of row pins marked 1-10.


Then when you lay out your quilt,
 pin each block with its coordinating pin(row A,block 1) to make assembly of the blocks a breeze!!

Great tip, Gail!!

Hope to see everyone at retreat next year!!

Christa
