My annual Spring Sewing Retreat was this past weekend and I think that it was the best one ever! Our projects included making Easter dresses, the ever popular Twirl skirt, a fabric flower, a sewing notions bag (or several!) and a knit yoga skirt and/or leggings! As always, the menu was decadant and memorable ~ I do not think that I will eat now for at least a week!

And, the accomodations . . . pure elegance and homey~comfy! I hold our sewing retreats at the Southern Comfort Retreat House in Mineola, Texas. See how pretty it is!
Here are some photos of just a few of the completed projects:
This is Miss Lily by Samantha Caffe of The Handmade Dress ~ of course it was not handmade! ~ made on the sewing machine! I do not know why her patterns bear that name.
And below is a little suit made using a pattern by Jackie Clark, the Baby Overalls. Isn't this a classic! And, monogrammed too!
Here is another cutie: this is a pattern by ModKid Designs, Isabel.
Many of the participants made themselves a Notions Bag:
And some people made more than one!
I’ll post more pictures tomorrow of all of our fun as well as a one of my favorite recipes from our retreat hostess!
