Getting Back on Track

I am sure you have noticed that we have not been posting on a regular basis for quite some time here at See How We Sew. Sometimes, life just has a way of taking you on a different course. Laura, Darci and I have all been experiencing this lately, each enjoying happy, new adventures, and simply taking a break on the social media platform for a bit. All is good, and the positive side is that this has allowed for a lot of interesting new topics to share with you this summer!

Laura and I attended a retreat a few weeks ago with a group of wonderful quilters. It was in a very peaceful, serene setting in the Sierra foothills. It was nice to have time to just sew. No deadlines, no stress, just 4 lovely days of sewing and creating. Laura took some beautiful photos of the property, while she was on her morning walks.

It would be hard to not be inspired while in this setting.

There was a beautiful quartet of quilts hanging in one of the conference rooms. A gift from the Foothill Quilters Guild, in Auburn, CA.  The design, concept and workmanship was just stunning. I wanted to share them with you.

What a wonderful series of work, and the perfect location for them to be viewed in.

In our next post, Laura will share what she worked on during our retreat. It was so much fun watching this project go together!

Have a great week!
