I’d say the second sewcial getaway was quite a success (read about the first here). Ah, so much fun. This is just a quick recap of our weekend at the Wimberly Quilt Ranch! First off, it was such a fun house – the work room was amazing. Huge cutting table at the right height, walls to stick your quilts (or other crafty projects) on, great natural lighting, the craziest animatronic irons I’ve ever used. . .
Throughout the house there were many handmade items – including some Texas quilts. The one on the left was quilted with stars – how appropriate!
The backyard was so beautiful in morning light. I love the sun shining through those gnarled live oaks onto those red chairs. It was a LITTLE too warm to spend time out there, but I admired it from the screened in patio in the mornings.
Do you see those little spools of thread as lights? It’s all in the details. . .
One of the bigger projects I set to work on was sorting all the fabrics my scrap bin. As you can see, I let the collection get a little out of hand.
But I tackled it! I have some scrap buster projects in mind to use some of these great scraps!
And here’s a quick snapshot of the projects that I worked on this weekend. Two dresses for myself, two flower girl dresses for a friend’s wedding, a dino hat for Jude, two new mama sets and a tote bag. I will do better write up of them when I take some better pictures of the projects individually.
Thanks ladies for such a great time – I always enjoy sewing with you! And I can’t wait to do it again. Good food, good music, good conversation all while sewing. It’s perfect!
