This weekend a few friends and I went to the high desert in California to visit and sew with our friend Anna. We were treated like royalty and I got a lot done. It was great fun. And no snake sightings which is relief to me. :)

I did get this little panel done for our guild's boutique. (Still needs to be quilted.)
I also started a Christmas Quilt that I am making to sell at our guilds boutique in October in the consignment section. It's coming out beautifully.
Before I left on the retreat, I finished this little art quilt that I started at Judy Coates Perez' class in February. I hated my background because I did a screen printing in 3 spots and it looked like big brown blobs. Because of that it took time for me to decide how best to cover those blobs up. I used my Tsukineko inks and used a lot of water to make it look like water color. I also trapunto'd the fish so it really stands out. Now I'm happy with this piece.
In other news, my grandson will be joining 4-H this year and will be raising his hens. Here is is with his little chick. Both little cuties.
And keep cool.
