We are winding up our retreat here at The Lodge at Douglas Lake. These ladies have come from all over the country and it has been a wonderful week. Even tho it's hot, there's a nice breeze blowing off the lake and it has been so much fun to see the different projects completed. And the food, oh my, the food! Hope all of you ladies are enjoying your quilting today. I don't get to quilt kr post often so this has been a special treat for me.
I have done about 12 quilts for charity so far on my longarm so far this year. I have to admit, I enjoy doing freehand work over pantographs.
I have a group that makes a lot of scrappy pieced hearts for charity and I have been getting pretty good at doing hearts freehand. The one I did today had a lot of stop and starts because the maker of the top had put a sashing between the hearts.

FDAQG will be having their Quilt Show in September and this is what I hope to have ready by then.

We'd like to have rooms close by and food. The price needs to be reasonable to the services provided. The retreat would begin on Friday and end of Sunday. Do you have any suggestions or ideas? Would appreciate your input. Blessings.
I am looking for 30 wt. thread. Does anybody out kno where I can get it?

The treadle irons have had the rust scrubbed into submission. They are painted and back together. After the repeated on and off, the top is fitted and screwed down. The treadle wheel no longer rubs away at the side panel thanks to washers and a bit of planing I did to the side.
I learned a bit about french polishing the shellac yesterday. The bit of linseed oil does help keep the surface workable a WEE bit longer. The process went well until a phone call. One section sat too long, and
