Artists Colony 2016

I have been anticipating this retreat for months


  The Artist's Colony at Moose Mountain Park


I was excited to sew in such a quaint and quiet atmosphere


I brought all my favorite things to hang in my cabin


I even finished a few things


such as this Country Chic pattern in Zen Chic fabrics


It was five fun filled fabulous days hanging out and sewing!!


I worked on my barn quilt which I could have sold 3 times 
but
 it's not done!!!


I didn't think of selling my 'wares'

I was just going to sew
 but
  people kept asking so I sold a few things


My first sale was my lunch bag!!

It's going to Australia with the Hume family..


Look at that cute girl in the background... 
Heather Piermantier!!

Thank you to all my friends and family that came for a visit!!

My second sale was my WOW bag which was purchased by Debbie Sorenson 


I was all packed up and heading home 
when
 Audrey Bonkowski asked for a peak!!

I did a quick trunk show literally....

She loved my last WOW bag and took it home!!


It was so much fun...

I am going to try to book for next year if they will have me!!


It was relaxing... at least from Justin's vantage point!

He told me to try it but I would still be in it....


I had a great view of the lake...

That little triangle on the lake is Maryann wind sailing!!


I had the honour of being there with Ken Frederickson who is sculptor

I teased him that I can say "I knew him when..."
 as 
he has only begun sculpting and is incredible!!


Shirley Rumble, Painter


and
Margaret Delainey...
(otherwise known to me as Brenda Blackburn's mom)


It was excellent timing too... 

The Red Market Barn of Kenosee Lake
 and
 the Happy Nun of Forget, Sk 


joined forces to put on a Summer Barn Supper


It was a nice evening of 60 people


shared communal style



My last project at the Colony was this Canadian flag


We live in an incredible country...


I was glad to take some time and enjoy it....
