Fun sewing

I've been doing a little "just for fun" sewing lately.  These little bags make great gifts...and I'll keep one for myself, too!

Tornado quilt

Just dropping in quickly to post a picture.  My stitch group, T Town Stitchers made this quilt for a young couple who lost their home in the Moore, Oklahoma tornado in May.  The young woman is a friend of my two daughters.  

Here I am with the other "Theresa" in the group.  At least we spell our names differently.

Quilters' Retreat

This past weekend I went on a quilters' retreat.  Ten of us gathered at the Bluebird Lane Retreat Center which is only about 30 minutes from my house.  I had never been there before, but believe me, I will go back!  The place was wonderful!  All the food AND SNACKS were provided along with a very comfy place to sleep.  The spacious work area was great, too!  Each quilter had a 6 foot table with a rolling leather chair and an Ott light.  We didn't even have to take our own irons, ironing boards or cutting boards!

I finished my table runner and coasters while I was there.  Here they are on my table at home.

I also worked on these two UFO's.  The big one will be for my bed, but it has a ways to go.
