The quilt retreat last weekend at YMCA Camp Hazen was wonderful. It was fun, relaxing, creative, and best of all, great to hang out with old friends and new. Sewing machines and fabric were everywhere.
My friend Pat taught a class for a crazy quilted embellished box to hold jewelry, treasures, and what not. We used pieces of satin, brocade and velvet along with bits of lace and trim. Mine came out gorgeous and just needs some beads and charms to be complete. The box is a modern updated version of Victorian style.
Pat shared a little doll pattern with me too. I was not in the mood to make a doll, but Pat’s dolls were enchanting so I started a doll on Sunday and am finishing her at home. The dress and hair were added last night and now she would like some beads, charms, earrings, and a necklace. The doll’s name is Amethyst and she shines bright and rings true. The cat found her on the coffee table tonight and thought she was a play toy so I had to intervene.
