Sick and more Retreat

I was hit by the worse cold I had in years this week, it went from a sore throat on Tuesday to feeling like my lungs had been glued together on Wednesday, I spent the rest of the week sleeping and coughing, I thought I was going to go to work on Friday, but by the time I got up and got ready I needed a nap.

So needless to say no sewing, but here are some photo of what the other girls were working on a retreat last weekend.
I just love this kitty quilt, so fun and bright.
This is one of Moda tin box sampler series, I have the same one, so I will be interested to see different mine turns out.
My battery was getting low when I took this photo, the colours are much more stunning in real life. The girl who was making this top was gitty when she finished it. I think I would be too.This tulip table topper is based on the Christmas topper a lot of us made last December, I think this works great for spring /summer.


I am always inspired by the project others are working on, each retreat my to do list seems to get longer.

I sure hope you get over your sickness! Being sick is so miserable! I love the quilts! They are all amazing! The kitty quilt reminds me of my cat, how he tries to hang in the window.

I'm sorry that you were ill and I hope you are feeling better now.

I love the pictures of the quilts. I agree with you about the table topper being summery. It's given me a few ideas.

love and hugs xxx

Rest is best. Hope you are feeling much better and ready to get back to sewing.

I adore the kitty quilt and was wondering if there might be a pattern for it.

Sorry you are not feeling well. Did your friend happen to mention the source of her kitty quilt pattern? It is adorable and of course, as a cat owner or rather one owned by a cat, I am always drawn to those first, LOL,

I am sorry to hear you have such a terrible cold. I am here in Calgary and I have had a cold since Weds. - but not that bad. I was so worried I would give it to the baby. I did manage to get to Freckles quilt shop on Saturday. An easy drive from my daughter's house. I hope you feel better today!!
