Sew In Tuesday...

I am embarrassed to admit that I forgot to take pix yesterday during the sew in. Lots of  gorgeous fabrics, quilts and hard work but you will have to take my word for it.

I finished sewing my newest sampler design yesterday, so I am working on the patterns today. (I did a little cleaning, biking, and watering before I could start.) I will have a pic to show soon. I want to try to get the sampler quilted in the next few days too, while it is a bit cooler. It is sort of twisted when temps in the 80s sound cool.

 Every so often we took breaks to play the LCR game. We play with one dice and the ante was a fat quarter. Winner take all! The dice has L for left, R for right and C for center. If your roll lands on L, you hand your FQ to the left, if it lands on R you hand your FQ to the right and C lands it in the center. Once they are in the center, there is no getting them back. So this can go on for awhile, depending on how lucky you and your neighbors' rolls are. The game ends when all the FQ are in one person's pile. They get the center FQs too.
 We have played this during our past retreats. It's a little break and lots of fun. Sometimes it gets a bit exciting...  sorry, no pictures of that!

I imagine that does get exciting, especially as the piles are getting bigger.
