Retreat Day Three - Part Two

Okay...finally the retreat finale!

Sandy finished her top--I just love the center motif and how the other fabrics accent it.

Nancy designed and hand appliqued her center. Such a soft, serene palette.

Gale did three-dimensional applique on her center--the gold pieces are actually 3D petals that accentuate her fussy-cut circle. Stunning!

Milling...milling...milling. We decided to get a picture of the group and here everyone is milling around trying to decide how best to arrange themselves! (I just love these shots!)

And here they are--smiling and happy...and tired! At the end of three full days, they still were navigating and friends!

Gale took this picture so that I could be in a shot as well. I'm the one with the tiara (in case you didn't know that!).

After the group pictures, it was back to work! Cindy finished her top--we decided she needed a bit different set as her star had a more formal feel and we wanted to use more of the floral.

And Myra worked very hard to complete her star. And she did--before the end of the third day!

Ladies, WELL DONE! It was an absolutely fabulous adventure with you all. It was exciting and satisfying to see the Star of Hope take shape with so many different fabrics and colors. And the friendships and camaraderie are priceless. Many thanks for the memories! What a rush!
Hugs to all,

  1. Thank you Sharon, for all the work and effort you put into making this retreat possible! Every one of the Star of Hopes were stunning and so individualistic (is that a word?). The retreat was a lot of fun and relaxing even if we did work hard. I look forward to next year!
