Some quilts from quilt retreat.... and winner announced.

Safely home from quilt weekend, so back into normality after 46 hours of patchwork bliss....and two winter ocean swims that seem to have really helped the dermatitis on my hands. I got a few things done, the tops I showed you last post, and also the Madeira throw pictured in the middle of the very sunny picture above, and most of my boy's 11th birthday t-shirt quilt. Can't see them all that well here, I might show some closer pics next post.
Also, forgot to announce that the winner of my week of blogging prize is Quilting fitzy, she will get some fabric, some cards...and hopefully a nice surprise! Perhaps I should hold her to ransom and say she doesn't get her prize until she resumes her blog, I miss her. After all these years of blogging I miss my friends when they disappear...that goes for you too, Dawn formerly of Korea, you make me laugh!

Robyn got her horses together, very fiddly blocks but they look fantastic, her girl will love her horse quilt.

Lise, the Chocolate cat, got her quilt top together. Great colours, her S.I.L should love that.

Janine stitched all weekend on these blocks.

Helen finished hand quilting her first grand-daughter's quilt.

The gorgeous Kerrin is full of energy after her recent health hiccup and finished her quilt top and got it pinned. She should be justifiably proud.

Jane finsished her quilt top, from the Awesome range, I think! Kerrin is helping display it. (Hope that is Jane and not Lise' range, I can't keep up!) Also, Jane informs me I gave her the credit for Lise's stitched apron gift, it was made by Anne.

Posted by PicasaAnd here we all are after cleaning up and before a closing lunch down the street. We have booked the same house again for next year and I am looking forward to it already!

Of all the people, I miss myself the most!!!

You made me laugh out loud. (And how embarassing is it to have to explain to the family why I am laughing at the computer?)

Thanks Tracey, and I guess you win. I'll be back soon.

(I miss Dawn too! I do remember she moved back to Ohio.)
