Weekend sewing

Last weekend was Thimbles weekend, I really thought about  not going, it had been a long week at school, but I really wanted to see everyone.  I was really glad that I went, Becky is really enjoying her retirement, she had been sewing all day and was coming back on Saturday.  Kristie showed up for a while, since she is still unpacking she only came by to visit, (she hasn't unpacked her sewing room yet.).  There were some great show and tells, Sandra is just phenomenal, she really knocks out quilts.  The one below is one she had just finishesd  I loved the red, white and blue.
Karen is another one that really can knock them out.  I love what she did with Pat's scrappy nine patch.  It looks great made out of "true scraps."  I still have my kit from that pattern to get made, on well, someday.
Karmen out did herself with this miniature, hand pieced double wedding ring. 
It is amazing.  I have always admired people who do miniatures.  I just don't have the patience for it.
