Heatwole Sewing Retreat … continued

This is the cabin we have been occupying all this past week. Can you see Polly waving from the balcony? And there is a huge hornets nest on the left side of the picture.

Coleen and I decided to get out and take a walk for exercise and to see the country. I’m hoping we can attend the little church for services.


There were a couple nice cabins, a small pool, and this little waterfalls at the end of the cul de sac.


Paul’s sister Dorcas wanted help with a “Dick, Jane, and Sally” quilt. Now that I got it all pieced, she plans to hand quilt it and put it up for auction.

I started a new project, “Fiesta Fireworks.” This was the beginning stages and I already discarded the red border for a plain black background.

My niece Jolene and her daughter Afton joined us for a couple days.


  1. Would loved to have been a fly on the wall watching this retreat happen and learning techniques.

  2. Hello Julia,
    I read your blog when I sit down to a cuppa. It's always a delight, and your quilting is an inspiration. I have learned so much from your posts. I also bought your sister's books having read about them here too. I'm having fun with them.
    This time though, I have to say that the views from your retreat cabin look like Scotland :-)
    Not the hornets, thankfully, but the scenery and that kirk down in the valley. Looks like home in a dry, cold Winter.
    Kind regards,

  3. Dear Julia,
    I love your blog. It must be wonderful to have a retreat with our sisters. The Fiesta Fireworks is so vibrant and I think the red border just adds another dimension to it.
