OHCRAFT RETREAT!

Last October I attended a fun retreat with #OHCraft  
a group of fun sewists, mostly from Ohio, in Kentucky
making merry, creating, eating, 
and why yes, there was some drinking,  
Necessities packed!


This is how the sunrise greeted us each day at
General Butler State Park in Kentucky!
The weather was incredible...reached almost 80 degrees!


There was a  Secret Sister Swap
My partner was Clarie @crimesagainstfabric
Small gifts delivered all weekend and
On the final day we swapped the big gifts.
  I made her this Noodlehead 257 bag
out of one her fav fabric collections,
Doe, by Carolyn Freidlander.




Absolutely love this color combo!


and inside was this tiny "flying geese" pincushion 



@meigheyburn spoiled me with these fun gifts.  


and this was my gift on Sunday
A Ghastlies Knitting Project Bag w/Yarn


   She designed this bag with a clear vinly pocket for the pattern
and two snaps loops inside to separate two different yarns,
for one project...keeping them tangle free!
GENIUS!

The pillow swap participants 
received some amazing pillow covers!

The Columbus Modern Quilters
could not decide if their "jazz hands" should quilt 
or do a Broadway Show!


While the Cincinnati Modern Quilt Guild
decided they wanted to build a human pyramid...
sorta!


Then what to our wondering eyes should appear
but two of Santas favorite 
Cbus elves, Leigh and Katy
....pouring wine of course
Walmart Fashionistas!


All in all it was a fabulous weekend with kwilty peeps
enjoying well...just everything!
