Found these pictures and wanted to share. If you desire to attend a wonderful retreat, Madeline Island School of the Arts is a beautiful venue. Looking forward to attending next year again. Here is a sunset captured just before entering the Pub for dinner. The classroom is full of eager students "stuff"!

While at MISA we played around with some new techniques. I was enthralled with the inserts and want to explore more of this in the future. So many possibilities. I just grabbed colors for contrast and practice. This was shared by Rene' one of the students. Thanks a million.

As we wait in anticipation to move into our new home my husband came across an old picture from his college days at Ferris. While taking it out of the frame to clean it a surprise was in store. Three team pictures of his baseball days as 2nd baseman were tucked behind it. He is located in the front right hand corner with glove in hand. 12 years old here. I had never seen these pictures before so it was a real treat. So glad they were preserved.

Just returned from Madeline Island School of the Arts. A wonderful venue to host 42 quilters from all walks of life. At least 4-5 additional teachers among the two headliners: Gwen Marston and Pam Beal. Subject: Small Studies in Solids. A delightful group of like minded people. Sharing, discussion, and creating personalized pieces anyone could imagine. Hard work paid off. These little "studies" are much harder than one thinks. Working with small pieces challenges the creative aspect going forward. Progression and fortitude carried us through and many pieces were appreciated by all. Pam and Gwen were great in providing the environment for thoughtful processes and were a compliment to each other. Thank you ladies for a great time and helping get the juices flowing again. Two pieces of my work.
