I hope most people have a happy place, perhaps multiple happy places. It can be as simple as a favorite chair to read a book with a hot cup of coffee or tea; or someplace totally exotic. One of my happy places is on a quilt retreat on the West River in Southern Anne Arundel County, Maryland. It's truly a beautiful place, but the people inside the retreat center are my inspiration(s) to do my best work. The sisterhood of the sewing needle (electronic at that!) is weaved into unbreakable bonds we share with each other...with fabric and ideas and creating "works of art."
We cheer each other on with each project pulled out of our bags, like a magician pulling a rabbit out of a hat. Sometimes it is pure magic - the colors; the hues and values, plus the juxtaposition of the squares, rectangles and triangles going into each pattern...or not. It is a creative dance, let's call it that.
My photos below show our group this weekend; our kitchen area and our Friday night meal (potluck). Let the creative juices flow all weekend!
