I am so glad that I was able to join the 7th Blue Bonnet Stitching Retreat at Horseshoe Bay Resort in Texas this year. It was a beautiful resort. They have a pool, parrots, Zen garden, and 18 holes of natural grass putting greens (that we played as a miniature golf course twice). Good close games with Bill.
I met some wonderful ladies from Houston, friends of Linda’s from past retreats. Linda was a great table companion – good thing – we both took the same classes.
The 2 classes with Toni Gerdes were fantastic! The written and verbal instructions were clear, we worked on a line-drawn canvases, and they were well-paced classes. I’ll have no trouble finishing these at home – it’s only tough to decide which one to do first! This is my progress after 2 days of each class.

I finished Zapotec Rug designed by Toni Gerdes, a current ANG Correspondence Course. It was one I piloted but couldn’t get done until now. Since it was symmetrical, I was able to test the instructions by just stitching half.
It was fun working with the wool threads including Gloriana Lorikeet, Gumnut Poppies, Burmilana, and Felicity’s Garden.
And, I was able to finish it before I embark on two classes with Toni Gerdes. I’m going to Blue Bonnet for Bronze Purse and Fire and Ice.
