At the Round up!

Yes, it is that time of year again. I am in Texas for the 3rd Annual Dear Jane Round up, hosted by Brenda Papadakis. Once again we are at Newt's Tennis Ranch for a great time of sewing, food and a little shopping. There are 22 of us this year, many from past retreats and some newbies. Maureen came all the way from Melborne, Australia, and Joanne came all the way from Whitehorse, Yukon.

We have a nice bright room, with lots of table space to spread out. I am at the back table, Joanne is at the right table. Lisa and Pat, pictured, are from Texas. We all sat together last year.

Below are my blocks for the first two days. Check back later to see progress.


All the ladies are very creative and bring lots of fun goodies for everyone. 

One of my favorites is the saddle from Brenda!

Today is day three, and we are off to the Quilthaus after lunch, for a trunk show from Westminster Fabrics, and a little shopping. I am off to get a few more blocks complete before lunch!

  1. Sounds like you are making a lot of progress with only a couple of days into the retreat. I'm sure it is hot in Texas so sewing in an A/C controlled lots of light room is a pretty awesome place to spend time. Those two must really enjoy Brenda's Retreat to travel from so far. Anxious to see first hand the completed blocks. How did the key chains go over?
