Sewjourn Cactus Beauty



Heading off to bed now after a FABULOUS weekend away with a bunch of sewing girls at the wonderful Sewjourn in Lancefield.  Wow, what a place.  It was fantastic, with everything a sewing girl could need for a few days.  It even had a wonderful cactus garden which I took particular interest in, and marveled at their drought tolerance sense.  Although cactus gardens can sometimes look unfriendly and dangerous with their spikes and wrinkly old skin, they have a wonderful ability to put on a magnificent display with flowers at particular times of the year, and I saw glimpses of this on their website.  I was even moved to buy a velvet looking cactus at the Farmers Market on the Saturday and will put it in my flowergarden as a reminder of a great weekend.  
Thank you ladies!
I was particularly taken with Kathryn's work - for a new"ish" quilter, she is "the bomb!"  To attempt and conquer such patterns, I take my hat off to her.

How FANTASTIC was that weekend! Thanks so much for being such fun and so clever - you're an inspiration Annie!

Nikki said...

Yes - I second Lara on all of that! Too tired (and still drinking hot whiskey) to form a more eloquent sentence than that.

Looking forward to seeing your no-pattern clothing creations...
