The other thing I wanted to share with you is the wonderful inspiration I get from other women at the retreat. It isn't always just quilt related. I have met the most wonderful women at this camp. Of course you've heard me talk about Laura, Sossy and Linda a lot - and you can see their blogs. But I wanted to share some things from 2 other ladies. (Not to say there are only 2 more that are inspiring - this whole guild is amazing!)
And then there is Esther! I met Esther last year at camp, and what a beautiful lady! She is 91 and still going strong! I want to be like her when I grow up! She has had to slow down on the hand quilting she used to do for people, but she still does just a bit for herself. Above is a recent quilt she finished making and hand quilted, I think for her grandson. The quilting was to die for! We all had a wonderful visit from her. She was unable to attend camp this year because she had broken her ankle and it was just a tad too hard for her. But she did stop in to say hi! Oh and she told us she counted up her descendants and was at 60 with 2 more on the way!
Ladies like this are just so inspiring in so many ways! I am so lucky to know them!
