A quick trip around the design wall to see what’s new today…….
Suz’ latest amazing creation! Or at least the part she has completed….
Cookie’s latest wonderful wool project.
Madelyn’s latest lovely quilt! (Oops! This is really Cookie’s! Guess I was tired last night.)
Sally’s little bag and coasters. And Hope’s marvelous Inklingo k-stars!
Cindy’s fabulous quilt!
Cynthia’s Darth Vader creation. With a few Inklingo k-stars dancing above his head. Made by Cynthia and Davene.
Dena’s? At least it’s behind her chair. Cute! (And this one belongs to Patt! Oops.)
Dena’s Inklingo k-stars. Aren’t they great?
And these little diamonds will become more stars.
I know this will shock you, but these are mine. Part of a Dear Jane block. And yes, this is all I pieced today.
And the completed block! At this pace I’ll complete this quilt by 2050.
Our newbies have done a great job with our initiation games this year. Because there were only 3 newbies, we drafted oldies throughout the retreat time and had competition between Oldies and Newbies. The Oldies ended up pulling out a 3-2 victory. Everyone was a great sport!
In this game, each contestant had to blow up a balloon and then use the air inside to knock the cups off the table to the floor. Some faces got very red!
The very last game drew the most laughs. Here’s Davene describing what they all have to do with the cotton balls and vaseline. The game was called Nose Dive. They each had to stick their noses into some vaseline and then use that to pick up a cotton ball and run to the other end of the table and drop the cotton ball in the big bowl. No hands allowed.
Well, here. See for yourself.
You never heard such laughter! Oh, wait…. if you had your sound on, yes you did hear the laughter!
So the Oldies have bragging rights for a few months – or at least until the next retreat. A come-from-behind win!
The weather has been glorious! Several of us took a walk after lunch.
Isn’t the sky a glorious blue? Nice.
Judy wanted to go see the cows. I told her I could see them from here! Especially if I zoomed. <grin>
This is what The Compass Centre looks like from the street. A lot of farmland around it! And out in the boonies, for sure. A lovely place!
And already we are marching on to the last day. Why do the days always go so fast? Sigh. At least we have the satisfaction of knowing the next six months will zoom by too and we’ll soon be back again.
More to come!
