I'm home! What a wonderful treat it was to leave everything behind for 48 hours and go to Lesley's beautiful home to work on my quilt! I now see why retreats are so popular; you can get sooo much more done when the usual distractions are removed from the equation.
Each of us worked side-by-side on our own sampler quilts ... each square on the quilts feature different Big Shot dies... yes, you CAN cut fabric on the Sizzix Big Shot; up to eight layers at one time!
Thank you so much Lesley and Ted for your warm hospitality and entertaining stories over dinner; thank you Ruth for driving us up to Lesley's, lugging all my gear in and out of the car, and enjoying the "scenic route" that I navigated on the way home <wink>.
Here are some pics of our quilting bee ... and if this looks like something you'd enjoy, be sure to sign up for my next round of the Big Shot Club, which starts July 2010 - I'll show you all the things a Big Shot can do!
