Michele, Victoria and Hoodie's journey to Grafton.
Lunch at Brattleboro.

We could not meet with Jan. She was in NYC at the day! Sad!

Adam and Eve (They were naked - looks cold! ha) - Lamb as a star
I want to keep CAMPBELL SOUP ROBOT as my Santa Present!Frances and her doggies were waiting us to come!
First night at Frances's after dinner. We were at Frances work-shop house.
Starter was ice dyeing ! Girls prepared for dye powder!!!
What color is this?
Wait until tomorrow morning!
Second day's starter was checking ice dyeing fabrics.
"Look at this, Georges."We put all colors, Avocado, Indigo, Scarlet, Pink, Lemon,,,,,
But most of the fabrics were very greenish! We did not see Scarlet, Pink, Lemon,,,
But all ties got Scarlet, Pink, Lemon and blues.
Huuuum,,, we don't know why???
Then we moved upstairs and started The Executive's Journey projects.
Oops, I forgot to take pictures since I started the project.
It was not easy to decide my theme of Journey and technic for sawing.
Please go to Victoria's Blog! She posted most of the pictures from our second day.

These pictures are the last day of our retreat.
Three girls are broad member of The Alliance for American Quilts.
Victoria Findlay Wolfe, Michele Muska, Frances Holliday Alford. We were working on our own projects until the time was up!
Actually Frances was making something else in this picture.
Frances's Journey was on the wall.
She spent three weeks in Korea in October.
Can you see what was in her mind?
Korean pink was HOT. So we all use the HOT PINK into our journey.
Many Korean language were on her quilt.
Victoria rolled her work up, but she got ideas and went back to sewing again!Michele was working until the last minute!I worked in my favorite room!
I have a lot of homework. The models of our ice dyeing project.
Two Hoodies.
They slept with me one night, cuddle!
I forgot putting one more friend, Delilah.

P.S. Frances will invite two members to join our Exquisite Journey. It will be 6 panels for one. I can't wait our finish work!
