Getting ready for the retreat and a picture that inspires (attention Patsy Kellogg)


I have had this wine bottle (empty) in my store room for about 5 years. I would love to throw it away but the label is so wonderful I can't. I think that this is a great idea that I would like to jump off of for a story quilt and do my own thing....my friend Patsy loves roosters and has a name that fits. I told her about this bottle and think it would be nice to show her and people who attend my retreat this weekend. Ideas come from all over and as I always say" do not copy that exact design- make it yours so that even the artist would not know you got your idea from their art. There is too much copying out there and you can change anything into YOURS.
--------------------------------------------
I have boxes of fat quarters, half yards cuts and bolts of fabric to take along in case we need it....lots of fun colors and designs! Plus boxes of books and patterns.

I am packing cake plates and rulers and pressing boards and ironing boards and irons and mats and....well you get the picture...I owe my husband so much, he has spent the past few days with me shopping and making lists and running around....

Collecting serving pieces, bowls and cake plates for all of the food we bought to prepare....I knew I bought all of this stuff for a reason!

Stay tuned for fun photos of fun people and fun happenings from this weekend retreat.

I know I have seen a process on TV, maybe even Martha Stewart, to get the label off the bottle for posterity! What a great label.
Have lots of fun at the retreat. Maybe next year I can attend.
