The retreat was delightful: a warm, sunny room with a view of snow covered woods and fields, good food, good company and plenty of time to sew. What could be better?
I've finished 18 (out of 72) of the Greek key blocks, and started making some of Mary Lou Weidman's Hoochey Mama blocks. Her method produces straight edges, which means the finished blocks are more stable than other wonky methods where you just piece and hack. These are fun, but not particularly fast to make. I need at least six or seven more to get a good range of color and to make a border of the right length. So with two unfinished projects, I probably won't be posting finished work for a while.
One thing that is finished, however, is the Interpret This! Challenge. Debra posted an excellent summary of the project with links to everyone's work, and you can just scroll down and read our final comments too. I hope you'll visit this site if you haven't yet.
