What A Week! Winterfest 2011

Last Tuesday I got to tote some of my wool scraps to our Needles & Friends guild class.  My cute friend Kris (center photo) was teaching.  She found the most beautiful pillow at Anthropologie and worked with the most talented Jessica (bottom left) who drew up the design for her! It was a great class. The pillows everyone was creating will be stunning.  They will be using little scraps of wool as well as scraps of upholstery fabrics.  I am the very happy owner of the cream one Kris is showing in the photo.  It was the best Christmas gift ever!

Winterfest 2011

We enjoyed our time at Winterfest, a quitling retreat attended by over 100 wonderful, happy, and creative ladies.  It was great to observe and  meet some very sweet people.  We learned a lot about the crazy fun industry of quilting.  I loved those girls at the Corn Wagon who were wonderful "neighbors" and my granddaughter Molly's BFFs. Daniels Summit was a beautiful place. 

We were able to work on some projects during our down time.

It's never too early to start working on something for Christmas!

Thursday morning was one of the most beautiful mornings I ever saw!
We left Midway just after 7:00am and the entire valley looked like this. Absolutely spectacular.

The girls from Pine Needles

Little Miss Molly, just happy to be with all the ladies toting around her mommy's purse. 

The Lazy Daisy Cottage, all the way from St. George.

 I didn't really get any great photos - my camera's battery died
shortly after we arrived and I didn't bring the charger.  Yay for 
the cell phone camera.  This was our corner of the room.

The insides of one of my kits :)
Lesson learned: The ladies to love to buy a kit!
