Retreat Day Two

Thursday, May 27th, 2010

Just a quick check in from our retreat from reality. Today, we drove into Sisters for lunch and some retail therapy. I found a store with wonderful hand-dyed roving and silk hankies (essential silk roving).

Can’t wait to play with this.

We also went to the famous Stitchin’ Post quilt shop owned by Jean Wells.

I purchased some half price ugly fabrics for quilt  backs. Something I love to do.

I also saw more lovely Aspen groves.

I am inspired to make more Aspen quilts even though Terry tells me they are as cliche as heron quilts.
