Weaving in ends

When I work on a crochet project, I always tell myself that I am going to weave in the ends as I go. Unfortunately, that rarely happens! The project that I ‘m currently working on has many, many color changes. I’ve estimated that the end weaving alone will take me 15-20 hours. eeeeekkkk!!!! Fortunately, I can weave in ends while I am working.

This has been a really fun project and I am excited to have it start coming together. I enjoy crocheting the many sections together.

Oliver enjoys being able to hang out on a stack of crocheted octagons. 🙂

I can’t wait to share the completed project with you! Not long now!!!

Retreat Reservations!

Guess what!?!?!?!

Our Retreat Reservation page is now up and functional!!! We still have some work to do on it, but reservations can be made and that is super exciting! I have also made several changes to our website.

This week has been extremely busy without much time for crafting. 🙁 I have had several meetings, our daughter came home from college for the summer and I’ve been picking out paint colors and designing work spaces and ironing stations for the Retreat Center. My main goal was to be able to begin accepting reservations this week and that functionality is now in place so I am happy!

Want to hear something else exciting? In honor of having our reservations page up, we are having a CONTEST! We are going to GIVE AWAY a three day, two night Retreat for 8! To register, simply submit your email below.

Cathedral Window Quilt

I am so, so excited to announce our newest class!

Made and photographed by Beth Graham

This class will teach you how to make the time honored Cathedral Window Quilt!

 Inspired by historic church and cathedral stain glass windows, and made from ‘scraps’, this highly portable pattern became popular in North America in the 1930s. This beautiful quilt is sewn 100% by hand; no sewing machine required.

Each quilt block is made using a folded patchwork technique similar to origami; and as you complete each block, you have completed the top, middle and bottom layers! There is no need to sandwich, baste, pin or ‘quilt’ through the layers because it has already been done!

This is such a peaceful, relaxing project! I’ve worked on them while watching TV, in meetings, in the car ( not while driving, of course! 😉 )

This class will take place over four Thursday evenings.
