Show & Tell

 Lots to catch up with yet after my
comp problem hiatus...

This is the May CCC BOM grouping that
I won on June 1st...
Yaaay!!! I finally won one!!!
 Here they are displayed on my wall at home...
 There are a few more blocks to come in yet...

At our small group retreat that following weekend, we were pleasantly surprized to find that there was a lovely stone patio added to the cottage since we were there in April...
We made good use of it! 8-)
 First thing I did was finish up knitting up this baby afghan that I'm making for my G-Babe to be... Silly me I thought 3 balls would be enough...NOT!!! Now I have to go find more...
 Very soft, and fun to knit up...

 Then I made June's CCC BOM scrappy
block for the next draw...
 ...and since I won May's block, it is up to me to whip up a block along with instructions to present to the gals for the July BOM... Already made, but can't reveal it just yet... Surprize ya know!?! 8-)

This is Yn's Iron Carrier that she made
at the retreat.
 Here she is opening it up.
 The outside when flattened out.
 The ironing pad side up... Very handy!!
 Too cute! I'll be making one!! 8-)

This is A's "quilt as you go" double sided butterfly project that she was working on...
 This is De's Lone Star and Log Cabin quilt. It took a bit of fussing and ripping, but she got it put together!!! All it needs are the borders now...
 Dl started her 2 fabric paper-pieced project...
 De's Star Quilt... I believe it was done like
a stack & whack...
 Ls' baby quilt gift. Panel pictures and Disappearing 4-Patches.
 Ls's finished raffle donation quilt...
 Ls's redwork snowmen that she received as a gift. She started making the pieces to sash them...
 The gang that was out for this retreat...
 My work station. Putting the binding on one
of my PhDs for my challenge...
 Here it is finished a few days after the retreat.
  You can read a bit more about it (my frustrations) on the PhD Challenge blog here...
Glad I got a 2nd one completed, and now I am
on to my 3rd, hoping to have it done before
the end of the month...

Will have some Wonky Bit Show & Tell
in the next day or two...

Thanks for visiting!

Happy stitches!
Myra

It's wonderful to work with a group. You seem to have the best time. I love the panels in the baby quilt. Gotta keep my eyes open for something similar.

The iron carrier is fantastic! Is it from a published pattern?

The iron carrier is looks like something you have to have when you go on a retreat.
